Curtis Mayfield - Eddie You Should Know Better Lyrics

Eddie, you should know better
Brother, you know you're wrong

Think of the tears and fears
You bring to your folks back home
They'd say, "where did he go wrong, my Lord?"

We planned and worked hard
From the very start
Tried to make him better
Than all the rest
But the brother proved to be
So much less

Eddie is everybody's friend
But sometimes we wonder now and then

The only time he'll choose you
When there's something to lose through
His personal loss
And the friend pays the cost
All the time

Must be something' that's freezin' his mind
That has made him, through greed, so very blind
And I don't think he's gonna make it this time
