The good life is what I need
Too many people stepping over me
The only thing that's been on my mind
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
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
(The good life)

    This persons life is terrible. Tons of stress, failing relationships, not enough money. It's hard to handle. All he's saying us that is he wants a little luck, and little bit if a life worth living. That's how I see the sing, and I can't help but growl and sing along because everyone feels like this even if they have a good life.
    I don't mean to beg for sympathy but even though some people in my grade have lost their virginity already and I've never even had a boyfriend. My parents don't make much money, I'm always hungry, and have two older brothers who eat most of the food, and my lunch is always around two small snack foods. I'm painfully shy and never put my hand up in class, and there are still people worse off than me. So just wonder if you have the good life. I know sometimes I think I do.

    I feel that the meaning of this song is to stop letting people push you around and make you sacrifice what you want for them. To stand up for once, without worrying about what they will think.

    I think it means to live life to the fullest and make it a good life. Some rich people may have terrible lives whereas a hobo could have a better life.
