Roxy Music – A Really Good Time lyrics


Youґre heard enough
Of the blues and stuff
Youґre pretty swell now
ґcause youґre pretty tough
But I donґt have to tell you
How hard it can be to get by
You never bothered
About anyone else
Youґre well educated
With no common sense
But love - thatґs one thing
You really need to get by
All your troubles
Come from yourself
Nobody hurts you
- they donґt care
Just as long as you show them
A really good time
All the things
You used to do
A trip to the movies
A drink or two
They donґt satisfy you
They donґt tell you anything new
You know I donґt talk much
Except to myself
ґcause iґve not much to say
And thereґs nobody else
Whoґs ready and willing
And able to know me - I guess
Listen to me
Iґm not finished yet
Thereґs something to tell you
That I canґt forget
Just have a really good time
Thereґs a girl
I used to know
Her face is her fortune
Sheґs got a heart of gold
She never goes out much
But boy - when she does
Then you know
Sheґs got no money
Well, maybe a dime
But she knows what sheґs worth
And thatґs reason why
Sheґs gonna make it
Sheґs got what it takes
Youґll appreciate that
Sheґs probably late
But I know
And you know
We all know
Sheґll have a really good time
