It's the good life, full of fun, seems to be the ideal

Yes, the good life, lets you hide all the sadness you feel

You won't really fall in love 'cause you can't take the chance

So be honest with yourself, don't try to fake romance

 

Yes, the good life to be free and explore the unknown

Like the heartaches, when you learn you must face them alone

Please remember I still want you and in case you wonder why

Well, just wake up, kiss that good life  goodbye

 

(musical interlude)

 

Please remember I still want you and in case you wonder why

Well, just wake up  kiss that good life good  bye
