The Good Life

I once had the good life, as good as life could be
Once had a happy home in ol' Marin County
Then a voice came down and opened up my soul
So I threw it all away for rock'n roll

I once had a woman, as pretty as they come
She always gave me something, and then she gave me some
Then a voice came down and showed me the way
So for rock'n roll I threw that girl away

I ain't got much babe But I'm doin' all right
I got my passion and I'm playin' every night
Can't be employed living someone elses dream
So I'm on the road and I'm doin as I please

I was once educated Yeah I was pretty bright
I had myself a real job, kept me workin' day and night
Then a voice came down and opened up my soul
So I threw it all away for rock'n roll

I don't go out to dinner
I can't afford my lunch
I can't afford my girlfriend
and I miss her so much
I'm roofless, and I'm skinny
My beard is growing long
If you take me out to breakfast
I'll sing you another song

I ain't got much babe...

I once had the good life
