I'll Be Good Because Of You

(Ray Noble / Alan Murray)


Novelty Orchestra

Puzzle records had six short tracks in total, three different tracks, cut into three concurrent grooves on each side. It was a matter of luck which track the needle entered.

All because of you you dear
All because of you
I've begun to change dear
Change my point of view
Change my way of living
As I promised to
I'll be good because of you

I've been easy going
Foolish through and through
I was only showing-off
Infront of you
Now i'll make a clean sweep
As I promised to
I'll be good because of you

If it's rather funny wasting money
I would be happy running wild
I was made a fool of
Just a tool off
Any place that's mine

I'm so very sorry
For the life I've led
Now I'll be a saint dear
With a halo around my head
I'd make resolutions
I mean what I say
I'll be good, so good because of you
