You don't have to be a sinner to be a saint.

*THE BALLAD OF A GOOD MAN*
 
once there was a boy
and all he ever wanted
was a brand new toy
**
*don't forget the good*
 
but it seems so long ago
that he might aswell
let that dream go
 
*dont forget the good*
 
now he is a man
and he has learnt best
is to do what he can
 
 *dont forget the good*
**
with his own bare skin
he will do unto others
he wishes will be done to him
 
 *dont forget the good*
 
but life doesn't play fair
and still he trys
all he now does is care
 
 *dont forget the good*
 
some others are triing too
this encourges the man
to increase what he can do
 
*dont forget the good*
**
every battle he does win
but this endless war
it has worn him thin
 
*dont forget the good*
 
dying in his bed
this ballad is
all that he said
 
*the ballad of a good good good good man*
