Good Thing Lyrics

You and I are mortal, but rock and roll will never die.

Ha, ha

I never felt too good,
But in this world who would?
I was always thinking
Something wasn't right
But then you came along and
Helped me sing a song and
Now I feel okay
I hope it can stay this way

You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end
Good thing
You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end

Are these the good days
That I've heard so much about?
There goes the heartbreak
That I can live without, oh oh oh

I've been so frustrated
Bitter, mean, and jaded
I've taken for granted
All the things I've got
But now that you are here
This anger disappears
And I feel happy too
This is sappy, but it's true

You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end
Good thing
You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end

Are these the good days
That I've heard so much about?
There goes the heartbreak
That I can live without

Are these the good days
That I've heard so much about?
There goes the heartbreak
That I can live without

Heartbreak I can live without
Heartbreak, heartbreak
I can live, live without

One, two, three, ow!

Good thing
You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end
Good thing
You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end


Are these the good days?
You know we've got a good thing going
Are these the good days?
And I don't wanna see it end
Are these the good days?
You know we've got a good thing going
Are these the good days?
And I don't wanna see it end

Yeah, yeah, yeah
You know we've got a good thing going

Yeah, yeah, yeah, whoo!
And I don't want to see it end

Hey! Yeah, yeah, yeah
Good thing
You know we've got a good thing going

No no, no no, no no, no no, oh
And I don't want to see it end

Good thing
You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end
Good thing
You know we've got a good thing going
And I don't want to see it end

Reel Big Fish ("RBF") is a ska punk band from Huntington Beach, California, United States who broke into the mainstream in the mid to late 1990s, formed in 1992.

Their debut album, "Everything Sucks" (1995), was an underground hit and led to a deal with Mojo Records (see also Mojo), an indie label. "Turn the Radio Off" (1996) established the band in the underground music scene, and they began touring throughout the USA. After the single "Sell Out" began breaking into the mainstream, including MTV, the album made an appearance on the charts. The ska revival was short-lived, however, and "Why Do They Rock So Hard?" (1998) did not lead the group to the mainstream.

Reel Big Fish released "Cheer Up" (2002) which began a movement into harder rock and pop sounds, with much less ska than the previous albums. The song "Where Have You Been?" was aimed at a wider audience, trying to drop the less popular ska sound, but was met with little mainstream success, despite the video. Their second most recent studio album was "We're Not Happy Until You're Not Happy" (2005).

They recently released "Our Live Album is Better Than Your Live Album" (2006) which includes 2 discs worth or their own tunes and a few covers of popular songs along with a DVD. They have worked on the soundtrack to BASEketball, which included a cover of A-Ha's Take On Me.

In 2006, they split from Jive records, who produced a "Best of" album against the will of the band, who could not prevent the release. The band has made a campaign to try and stop people buying the album.

Their latest album, "Monkeys For Nothing and the Chimps For Free" (2007) includes some songs that were previously recorded and released on other albums.

In 2009, they released "Fame, Fortune, and Fornication" an album composed of covers of older songs, including "Won't Back Down" by Tom Petty, and "Nothin' But a Good Time" by Poison.
