Have a Good Time

ŠPaul Simon, released on Still Crazy After All These Years, 1975

.

Yesterday it was my birthday

I hung one more year on the line

I should be depressed

My life's a mess

But I'm having a good time

.

Oo, I've been loving and loving and loving

I'm exhausted from loving so well

I should go to bed

But a voice in my head

Says "Ah, what the hell"

.

Have a good time

Have a good time

Have a good time

Have a good time

.

Paranoia strikes deep in the heartland

But I think it's all overdone

Exaggerating this and exaggerating that

They don't have no fun

.

I don't believe what I read in the papers

They're just out to capture my dime

I ain't worrying

And I ain't scurrying;

I'm having a good time

.

Have a good time

Have a good time

Have a good time

Have a good time

.

Maybe I'm laughing my way to disaster

Maybe my race has been run

Maybe I'm blind to the fate of mankind

But what can be done?

So God bless the goods we was given

And God bless the U. S. of A.

And God bless our standard of livin'

Let's keep it that way

And we'll all have a good time

.

[Repeat and fade:]

Have a good time

Have a good time

Have a good time

Have a good time

.
