Be Good (Lion's Song) Lyrics

by Gregory Porter

Be good is her name and I sing
my lion's song and brush my mane

she would if she could
so she pulled my lyon's tail and cause me pain
she said lions are made for cages
just to look at in delight
you dare not let'em walk around
'cause they might just bite

does she know what she does
when she dances around my cage and says her name

be good be good

be good is her name
I trim my lion's claws and I .
and I cut my mane
and I would if I could
but that woman treats me the same

she said lions are made for cages
just to look at in delight
you dare not let'em walk around
'cause they might just bite

does she know what she does
when she dances round my cage

be good is her name
I sing my lion's song
brush my mane

and she would if she could
so she pulled my lion's tail
and cause me pain

she said lions are made for cages
just to look at delight
you dare not let'em walk around
'cause they might just bite

does she know what she does
when she dances around my cage?

be good
is her name
I trim my lion's claw and I...

and I cut my mane

and I would if I could
but beee good

treats me the same

she said lions are made for cages
juste to look at delight
you dare let'em walk around
'cause they might just bite

does she know what she does
when she dances around my cage?

she dances around my cage
does she knoooow?
does she knooooooow?
be good
be good
be good
be good
