  • Now Listen
    Not a dime, I can't pay my rent
    I can barely make it through the week
    Saturday night I'd like to make my girl
    But right now I can't make ends meet

    I'm always workin' slavin' every day
    Gotta get a break from that same old same old
    I need a chance just to get away
    If you could hear me think this is what I'd say

    Don't need nothin' but a good time
    How can I resist
    Ain't lookin' for nothin' but a good time
    And it don't get better than this

    They say I spend my money on women and wine
    But I couldn't tell you where I spent last night
    I'm really sorry about the shape I'm in
    I just like my fun every now and then

    I'm always workin' slavin' every day
    Gotta get a break from that same old same old
    I need a chance just to get away
    If you could hear me think this is what I'd say

    Don't need nothin' but a good time
    How can I resist
    Ain't lookin' for nothin' but a good time
    And it don't get better than this

    You see I raise a toast to all of us
    Who are breakin' our backs every day
    If wantin' the good life is such a crime
    Lord, then put me away
    Here's to ya

    Don't need nothin' but a good time
    How can I resist
    Ain't lookin' for nothin' but a good time
    And it don't get better than this

    Don't need nothin' but a good time
    How can I resist
    Ain't lookin' for nothin' but a good time
    And it don't get better than this
    It don't get better Writer/s: BOBBY DALL, BRET MICHAELS, BRUCE ANTHONY JOHANNESSON, RIKKI ROCKET

  • Uglykidjeff from Belleville, Il.Though, it surely isn't Brett! The actor in this video also played the lead male role in the Motley Crue video for "You're All I Need" but I don't know his name.
  • Jeff from Austin, TxBret Michaels was definitely not the dishwasher, and this song DID become a rock anthem! Are you kidding me??
  • Rick from New York, NyYou might want to watch this video again,the dishwasher is NOT Brett...
  • Rachel from North Jersey, NjHow this didn't become a rock anthem I'll never understand....
  • Stine from Nahan, NorwayIn the start of the video, when Bret is washing, they play Poison's version of "rock'n roll all night".
