The Chi-Lites – I Never Had It So Good (And Felt So Bad) lyrics
Ah, yeah, I felt like a king
Standing in front of the judge
Because I knew, that whatever went down
I would be a free man, yeah

Well, I ran into this friend of mine, just the other day
And he told me he had heard about my freedom
And that if he ever saw me,
there were a few things that he'd like to say and
So he said:

"Who would be with you when the flame dies down'
Who will you depend on when no one else is around?"
I looked at him and said
"You know, I like being on the loose"
But now, that I think about it, I got to tell the truth

Our day in court's been one year to the day
Our first anniversary going our separate ways
As I celebrate being free at last
Never had it so good, and felt so bad

Went window shopping just this afternoon
How she used to want me to take her
Saw a silly looking hat she sure would have had
Never had it so good, and felt so bad

She don't wait up at night for me, no more
I make excuses to the hat-rack by the door
My kind of happiness has finally come
Bet you know, it's kinda sad
Never had it so good, and felt so bad (and felt so bad)

When I took a drink, I never heard her complain
She never dragged me shopping
When I could have watched a ball game
The grass is growing tall
And I, I'm getting kind of fat
Never had it so good, and felt so bad (and felt so bad)
Never had it so good, and felt so bad (and felt so bad)

Oh, my baby, my baby
Oh I got to admit it, that I made a mistake
Tell me how much more
Can a poor heart take'
Never had it so good, and felt so bad

Never had it so good, and felt so bad
Never had it so good, and felt
