"If It Wasn't for Bad" as written by and Leon Russell....
I knew from the first night I met you
Something just wasn't quite right
Loving like an innocent stranger
But somethin' was just out of sight

How could I know that you abused me
Fill out some plan of your own
I couldn't know you'd abuse me
Leave me here hurt and alone

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know that you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

I only saw what I wanted to see
You were a dream in my mind
I'll never know how you really could be
It didn't take long for me to find

I guess that it's my fault for seeing
Only what I wanted to see
I couldn't know you were being
A player just acting for me

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

I knew from the first night I met you
Something just wasn't quite right
Loving like an innocent stranger
But something was just out of sight

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good
