  • The good life is what I need
    Too many people stepping over me
    The only thing that's been on my mind
    Is the one thing I need before I die

    All I want
    Is a little of the good life
    All I need
    Is to have a good time
    Oh
    The good life
    All I want
    Is a little of the good life
    All I need
    Is to have a good time
    The good life
    (The good life)

    I don't really know who I am
    It's time for me to take a stand
    I need a change and I need it fast
    I know that any day could be the last

    All I want
    Is a little of the good life
    All I need
    Is to have a good time
    The good life
    All I want
    Is a little of the good life
    All I need
    Is to have a good time
    The good life

    Hold on, hold on
    I always wanted it this way
    (You never wanted it this way)
    Hold on, hold on
    I always wanted this way
    (You didn't ask for it this way)
    I always wanted it this way

    (The good life)
    All I want
    Is a little of the good life
    All I need
    Is to have a good time
    The good life
    All I want
    Is a little of the good life
    All I need
    Is to have a good time
    The good life

  • Thomas Swan from Menasha, WiTo add onto the grass is greener kinda thing Adam was talking about, the grass may seem greener on the other side until you get there and realize that it's all the same as where you came from.
