"What Good Am I?" as written by and Bob Dylan....
What good am I, if I'm like all the rest
If I turn away when I see how you're dressed
If I shut myself off so I can't hear you cry
Oh, what good am I?

What good am I, if I know and don't do
If I see and don't say, if I look right through you
If I turn a deaf ear to the thunder in the sky
You tell me, what good am I?

What good am I, if I say foolish things
And I laugh in the face of what sorrow brings
If my hands are tied, must I wonder within
Who tied them and why?
And where have I been, where have I been

What good am I, while you softly weep
And I hear in my head what you say in your sleep
And I freeze in the moment like the rest that don't try
You tell me, what good am I ?

What good am I, what good am I, if I watch you cry
If I sat an' lay there while you slowly die
You need somebody to try
Someone to wipe your weepin' eye
Someone to sob for you and never say good bye

You need somebody to try
Someone to wipe your weepin' eye
Someone to sob for you and never say good bye
What good am I ?
