​Best Thing Is To Be A Person

This song is by Tony Bennett and appears on the album Who Can I Turn To (1964).

There was a man
Looked up to Heaven
And he said, "Lord, what good am I?
I feel so unimportant that it makes me want to cry.
What should I do, Lord? Please answer me."

The Lord said, "Sure son, I'll tell you what to be:
The best thing to be is a person.
Just a person who loves is fellow man.
The best thing to be is a person.
Just a person who does the best he can."

The Lord said, "You can be a big man,
And I can tell you where to start.
Just let the world around you
Know the love that's in your heart."

The Lord said softly, "Listen to me.
There's only one thing that I want you to be.
The one thing to be is a person.
Just a person who does the best he can."
