I KNOW SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT YOU

LOUIS C. SEIMON

 

 

Girls

1.   Wouldn't this old world be better

2.   If the folks we meet would say-

3.   "I know something good about you!"

4.   And treat us just that way?

 

Boys

5.   Wouldn't it be fine and dandy

6.   If each handclasp, fond and true,

7.   Carried with it this assurance -

8.   "I know something good about you!"

 

Girls

9.   Wouldn't life be lots more happy

10.              If the good that's in us all

11.              Were the only thing about us

12.              That folks bothered to recall?

 

Boys

13.              Wouldn't life be lots more happy

14.              If we praised the good we see?

15.              For there's such a lot of goodness

16.              In the worst of you and me!

 

All

17.              Wouldn't it be nice to practice

18.              That fine way of thinking, too?

19.              You know something good about me,

20.              I know something good about you?
