All my life I've never stopped to worry 'bout a thing
Open up and shout it out, never try to sing
Wondering if I've done it wrong
Will this depression last for long, won't you tell me

Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone

Once we had an easy ride and always felt the same
Time was on our side and we had everything to gain
They treat me like yesterday, is that me, your happy days

Ma and pa look back on all the things they used to do
Never had no money and they always told the truth
Daddy didn't need no little toys
Mommy didn't need no little boys, won't you tell me

Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone, oww

Yesterday was such an easy game for you to play
Ah, but then lets face it, things are easier today
Yes, you need some bringing down
Get your feet back on the ground, won't you tell me

Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone

Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone
