“Suzy Is a Good Thing” LYRICS

Fauna:
I got eyes that can see pretty sunsets
And pretty dresses in store winders.
And I got ears that can hear music
And the sound of waves on a beach.
I got a nose that can smell flowers
And food cookin’ on a stove.

And I got two feet that can take me anywhere I want to go,
And I can walk and run and climb and swim in the sea.
And if I am somethin’ that can do all this,
Why should I be ashamed to be me?

Suzy is a good thing;
This I know is true.
Suzy is a good thing.
She may make mistakes,
As other people do—
Everybody makes a few.

Suzy’s eyes are searching eyes;
The world they seek is new.
Suzy looks for love
As other people do.
Suzy will find her love, too—
Someone is looking for Sue.

Tonight you’re goin’ out with a man—

Suzy:
With a man who asked me to go!
And I ain’t scared o’ sayin’ anythin’ wrong
’Cause I won’t say only what I know!

Fauna:
Right!

Suzy:
I’m goin’ out to eat tonight—
A feller is takin’ me there.
I’ll hold my hand on his arm good and tight,
And I’ll hold my chin in the air.

And if anyone tries to make a crack,
I’ll look like I don’t care.
Because I’m Suzy!

Suzy is a good thing;

Fauna:
This I know is true.

Both:
Suzy is a good thing.

She may make mistakes,
As other people do—
Everybody makes a few.

Fauna:
Suzy’s eyes are searching eyes;
The world they seek is new.

Suzy:
Suzy looks for love
As other people do.

Both:
Suzy will find her love, too—
Someone is looking for Sue.
