9. A Really Good Time


You’ve heard enough of the blues and stuff
You’re pretty swell now ’cause you’re pretty tough
But I don’t have to tell you
How hard it can be to get by

You’re never bothered about anyone else
You’re well educated with no common sense
But love, that’s one thing
You really need to get by

All your troubles come from yourself
Nobody hurts you they don’t care
Just as long as you show them
A really good time

All the things you used to do
A trip to the movies, a drink or two
They don’t satisfy you, they don’t tell you anything new

You know I don’t talk much except to myself
Cause I’ve not much to say and there’s nobody else
Who’s ready and willing and able to know me, I guess

Listen to me I’m not finished yet
There’s something to tell you that I can’t forget
Just have a really good, really good, really, really good, really good time

There’s a girl I used to know her face is her fortune she’s got a heart of gold
She never goes out much, but boy when she does then you know

She’s got no money, well maybe a dime
But she knows what she’s worth
And that’s reason why
She’s gonna make it, she’s got what it takes
You’ll appreciate that she’s probably late
But I know and you know, we all know
She’ll have a really good time
