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
