I Know Something Good About You!

Wouldn’t this old world be better if the folks we meet would say,
I know something good about you and then just treat us that way!
Wouldn’t it be fine and dandy if each handclasp warm and true
carried with it this assurance, I know something good about you!
Wouldn’t things here be more pleasant if the good that’s in us all
were the only thing about us, that folks bothered to recall!
Wouldn’t life be lots more happy, if we’d praise the good we see!
For there’s such a lot of goodness in the worst of you and me.
Wouldn’t it be nice to practice this fine way of thinking too!
You know something good about me, I know something good about you!

Jean Dulaney, who was serving as the club secretary, wrote the poem which he
published in the June 1947 club newsletter.

We should all practice this philosophy today!
