by Joe Walsh and Waddy Wachtel
Well a good manís getting hard to find these days but there still a few around.
A whole world looks up to a good man, Itís hard to keep him down.
So if youíre going out looking for a good, good time,
But the boys all turn into clowns,
Focus your attention, donít forget to mention,
No donít forget to mention that the boys just love it when you dish it out.
Easy with the ones youíve found.
And your wind up toys keep you busy for awhile until a good man comes around.
Well you can yell and scream, treat them mean, beat them up with words,
Throw them in the face you say. Do this, do that what it is, where itís at, anything to get you your way.
And you change your mood, cop an attitude, take them to the cleaners.
Just because youíre steaming, just because youíre hot,
Just because all the boys stop talking when you raise your voice.
Your temper ends up on the ground, you donít mean nothing to a good man.
Itís hard to keep a good man down, down, down, down.
Well itís hard to keep a good man down.
Go to war, slam doors, have a fit, throw shit, use every little trick youíve found.
It donít mean nothing to a good man,
Just because all the boys start shaking when the dishes fly,
Tremble as they crawl on the ground.
Well itís hard to keep a good,
Hard to keep a good man down.
Yes itís hard to keep a good man down.
