Where Have All the Good Times Gone

Album: The Kink Kontroversy (1965)
  • Well, lived my life and never stopped to worry 'bout a thing
    Opened up and shouted out and never tried to sing
    Wondering if I'd done wrong
    Will this depression last for long?

    Won't you tell me
    Where have all the good times gone?
    Where have all the good times gone?
    Well, once we had an easy ride and always felt the same

    Time was on our side and I had everything to gain
    Let it be like yesterday
    Please let me have happy days
    Won't you tell me

    Where have all the good times gone?
    Where have all the good times gone?
    Ma and Pa look back at all the things they used to do
    Didn't have no money and they always told the truth

    Daddy didn't have no toys
    And mummy didn't need no boys
    Won't you tell me
    Where have all the good times gone?

    Where have all the good times gone?
    Well, yesterday was such an easy game for you to play
    But let's face it things are so much easier today
    Guess you need some bringing down

    And get your feet back on the ground
    Won't you tell me
    Where have all the good times gone?
    Where have all the good times gone?
    Where have all the good times gone? Writer/s: Raymond Douglas Davies
