  • A prisoner of your love
    Entangled in your web
    Hot whispers in the night
    I'm captured by your spell
    Oh yes I'm touched by this show of emotion
    Should I be fractured by your lack of devotion
    Should I, should I?

    You better be good to me
    That's how it's gotta be now
    'Cause I don't have no use
    For what you loosely call the truth
    And you better be good to me

    C'mon c'mon be good to me

    I think it's all so right
    That we don't need to fight
    We stand face to face
    And you present your case
    Yes I know you keep telling me that you love me
    And I really do want to believe
    But did you think I'd just accept you in blind faith
    Oh sure babe, anything to please you

    But you better be good to me
    That's how it's gotta be now
    'Cause I don't have the time
    For your over loaded lines
    And you better be good to me

    Be good to me

    And I really don't see why it's so hard to be good to me
    And you know, I don't understand what's your plan, that you can't be good to me
    Why can't you be, good to me
    Be good, be good to me

    'Cause I don't have no use
    For what you loosely call the truth
    And I don't have the time
    For your over loaded lines
    But you better be good to me
    Be good to me, be good
    Be good to me

    'Cause I don't have no use
    For what you loosely call the truth
    And I don't have the time
    For your over loaded lines
    You better be good to me
    Good to me, better be, good to me
    Be good, be good to me, good to me
    Why can't you be good to me
    Why can't you be good to me
    C'mon c'mon c'mon Writer/s: HOLLY KNIGHT, MICHAEL DONALD CHAPMAN, NICHOLAS BARRY CHINN

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn October 13th 1984, a video of Tina Turner's "Better Be Good to Me" was aired ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    At the time the song was at #28 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; a little over five weeks later on November 18th it would peak at #5 {for 2 weeks} and it stayed on the chart for 21 weeks...
    It reached #6 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart, and also at #6 on the Canadian RPM Singles chart...
    Also at the time her only #1 record on the Top 100, "What's Love Got to Do With It", was at #15, but she almost had two more #1s when "We Don't Need Another Hero" in 1985 and "Typical Male" in 1986 both peaked at #2.
