Lyrics

If You Can't Be Good (Foglino)

If you can't be good, be careful
If you can't be careful, be tough
If you can't be tough, be lucky
If you're unlucky, don't fall in love

If you can't be wise, be clever
If you can't be clever, be cool
If you can't be cool, be honest
If you're dishonest, don't be cruel

I let my conscience try to guide me
I let my conscience cut and run
I want someone who'll stand beside me
Even after all the things I've done

If you can't be free, be patient
If you can't be patient, be right
If you can't be right, take it easy
If you're uneasy, just get through the night
