  • I had a broken watch on a broken chain
    I had a rood that leaked every time it rained
    I had an old guitar that wouldn't stay in tune
    But now it sounds just fine since I've met you
    I'm good as new

    I had some crazy thoughts runnin' through my brain
    Wonderin' if my life was goin' down the drain
    I had a broken heart, broken right in two
    But now it's in one piece since I've met you
    I'm good as new

    You made my life like a lullaby
    You put the spark back into my eyes
    You put the shine in the shining sea
    And you hung the moon where it should be

    Now my old yard is looking nice and green
    And my old car, well, it's a clean machine
    Even my old dog, she can feel it too
    It's not the same old thing since I've met you
    I'm good as new

    Since I've met you
    Well, I'm good as new
    Since I've met you
    I'm good as new Writer/s: Billy Burnette, Pat McLaughlin
