Good Times Bad Times Lyrics

Play "Good Times Bad Times"
on Amazon Music

In the days of my youth, I was told what it means to be a man,
Now I've reached that age, I've tried to do all those things the best I can.
No matter how I try, I find my way into the same old jam.

[Chorus]
Good Times, Bad Times, you...

    The first verse talks about being told what it means to be a man, and trying to do all those things, but finding my way INTO THE SAME OLD JAM. The chorus speaks of good times & bad times, mentioning woman leaving, BUT I STILL DON'T SEEM TO CARE. Why would someone not care how their life is going? The answer is at end of the song. I wish I was at home. I don't care what the neighbors say. I can feel the beat within my heart. Whatever happens in life doesn't matter when you are well-grounded with music, at home jamming out on your instrument of choice, keeping the neighbors up. Keep on jammin.

    In the days of my youth, I was told what it means to be a man,
    Now I've reached that age, I've tried to do all those things the best I can.
    No matter how I try, I find my way into the same old jam.

    *Good Times, Bad Times, you know I had my share;
    When my woman left home for a brown eyed man,
    Well, I still don't seem to care.

    Sixteen, I fell in love with a girl as sweet as could be,
    Only took a couple of days 'til she was rid of me.
    She swore that she would be all mine and love me till the end,
    But when I whispered in her ear, I lost another friend, oooh.

    * Chorus

    I know what it means to be alone, I sure do wish I was at home.
    I don't care what the neighbors say, I'm gonna love you each and every day.
    You can feel the beat within my heart. Realize, sweet babe, we ain't ever gonna part
