What's so wrong about being wrong?
There ain't no other reason to sing a song.
So if you're scared you won't belong,
What's so wrong about being wrong?

What's so right about being right?
All it's gonna get you is into fights.
So as you're laying alone tonight,
What's so right about being right?

Chorus:
And I try to be
What they ask of me.
I've brushed the dirt off from my knee's,
But it just came back as a blind disease
That'll clutch my head each time I sleep.
Now there ain't no one that I'll believe
Cos I just can't be what they ask of me.

What's so good about being good?
You're still gonna be misunderstood.
We've all gotta little bit of stink in our foot,
So what's so good about being good?

What's so bad about being bad?
I can think of alot worse things than that.
So there's questions I must ask,
What's so bad about being bad?

Chorus

    General CommentI think this song is pretty straightforward, but still I ADORE it. It's about being different, about not fitting in, a premise Willy goes into often.

    And to answer one of teh questions poised: what's so good about being good? well, if Willy doesn't know, NO ONE knows, becasue he's the BEST at beign good, lols.

    The pacifist undertones makes me smile. I esp. like the lines:

    So as you're laying alone tonight,
    What's so right about being right?

    Because that's what I do somtimes.
    This is a bit of an anthem for me - because sometimes I see someone or somethign and think, wow...and be annoyed - but then what's so bad about being bad? And I'll smile.
