"To Be Good Takes A Long Time" as written by and Paul Maurice Kelly....
One day, then another
One step at a time
The battle's never over
The Devil's so close behind
Cry, cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
Cry each time I fall
To be good takes a long time
But to be bad no time at all

I learned it before, now I'm learning again
Before you can waIk you must crawl
To be good takes a long time
But to be bad no time at all

Fine-sounding intentions
Pave the road to hell
I walked out my front door
And after that I can't tell
Cry, cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
Cry each time I fall
To be good takes a long time
To be bad no time at all
