A man can lie, cheat and steal,
He can do everything wrong.
He can wound every friend he has,
As long as he does it with a song.
A woman can sin and fall,
For all the worst things can long,
She can be as lustful as a man,
As long as she does it in a song.
People will forgive you,
Even when they can’t get along,
They will let you be your worst
If you can charm them with a song.
You can say “I love you” and not mean it
Have a marriage that is going all wrong,
Talk race, religion, avoiding the weather,
And still heal the breach with a song.
