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 then treat us just that way!

          Wouldn't it be fine and dandy,
          If each hand-clasp warm and true
          Carried with it this assurance --
          I know something good about you!

          Wouldn't things here be more pleasant,
          If the good that's in us all
          Were the only things about us
          That folks bothered to recall!

          Wouldn't life be lots more happy
          If we'd praise 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
          This fine way of thinking too;
          You know something good about me,
          I know something good about you!
