Something good…

I Know Something Good About You!

Wouldn’t this old world be better
If the folks we meet would say,
‘I know something good about you! ‘
And treat us just that way?

Wouldn’t it be fine and dandy
If each handclasp, fond and true,
Carried with it this assurance-
‘I know something good about you! ‘

Wouldn’t life be lots more happy
If the good that’s in us all,
Were the only thing about us
That folks bothered to recall?

Wouldn’t life be lots more happy
If we praised the good we see?
For there’s such a lot of goodness
In the worst of you and me.

Wouldn’t it be nice to practice
That fine way of thinking too?
‘You know something good about me,
I know something good about you! ‘
