lyrics

WHEN TIMES WERE GOOD

When times were good
Your parents threw great parties
It was beach houses and Mercedes
Times were good

When times were good
The champagne came in buckets
It was tennis skirts and truffles
Times were good

But don't sweat it, baby
Good fortunes come and go
You learn to pick the crumbs up off the ground

You won't regret it, girl
It's not that lonely at the bottom
You learn to get along with everyone

When times were good
Your head was in a vacuum
It was English cigarettes and mushrooms
Times were good

When times were good
You didn't have to chase her
She was happy to be erased
On your car hood

But don't sweat it, baby
You'll have to be less lazy
You'll learn to get along now your own

You won't regret it, baby
It's not that lonely at the bottom
You just learn to get along with everyone

When times were good
You walked on golden sidewalks
It was mirror balls, and small talk
Times were good

When times were good
They called your name out on the streets
You were the one to beat
Times were good

Don't sweat it, baby
You're in a space called maybe
So you don't if you're here or there (or anywhere)

You won't regret it, girl
It's not that lonely at the bottom
You just learn to get along with everyone

When will the times be good again?
When will the times be good again?
When will the times be good again?
When will the times be good again?
