"You Can't Treat The Wrong Man Right" as written by and Jimmy Webb....
Can't you see he doesn't care
He likes to play with you that's all
He's waiting on someone else's call
He's playing it cool
Why's it so hard to reach you?

Why are you still out there
Beating your heart against the wall
Waiting for Jericho to fall
You hard-headed fool
Didn't your mama teach you
Anything at all

You can't treat the wrong man right
Or change a devil to an angel overnight
He'll wreck all your best laid plans for spite
You can't treat the wrong man right
You can't treat the right man wrong
When you're out on the town
Acting mean and head-strong
He'll sit home and wait for you all night long
You can't treat the right man wrong

I heard it on the telephone
A woman was whispering in my ear
And though I was trying not to hear
The message came through
She was someone who knew you
I guess she told me everything
I wasn't listening anyway
I know she had a lot to say
But nothing was clear
I only remember her voice
Above the sound of the pinball
Saying to me

You can't treat the wrong man right
Or change a devil to an angel overnight
He'll steal all your love and and fly by night
You can't treat the wrong man right
You can't treat the right man wrong
You can run all the way from here to Hong Kong
And he'll be waiting when you come back in sight
You can't treat the right man wrong
You can't treat the wrong man right
