One, two
You better watch what you say
You better watch what you do to me
Don't get carried away
Girl, if you can do better than me, go
Yeah, go but remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe, when I found you

You put a hand on my cheek
And then you turned your eyes away
If you don't feel complete
If I don't take you all of the way then go
Yeah, go but remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe, when I found you

Yeah, go just go, but remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe, when I found you

    General CommentProbably unintended, but this song is the quintessential guide map for how a man should manage his relationship(s) with women. The elements associated with a woman's hypergamy are on display here, but more importantly, the correct yet uncomfortable way that a man should deal with these realities is laid bare. I say uncomfortable because nearly all men want to "keep" that special person who is dear to him. He will sacrifice many things in his life, including his dignity, to save what cannot be saved. It is one of the most pathetic things that men do. "If you don't feel complete. If I can't take you all of the way, then go..." means that, the moment HE realizes that he is no longer her priority, then the relationship is over...regardless of whether she is able to muster the courage to communicate it. In short, Petty is saying, "Don't waste my life."
