Good Times Pass

Jazz Animals

  1. Good Times Pass


Good times pass
Bad times too
I guess the trick is
you gotta make the good times last
longer than the bad times do

Rocking chair
Wooden pier
Mobile Bay in the air
Point Clear
The sunsets are pinks, blues and yellow
And shoes that were made to be mellow
Wind and water in my ear


I am a city boy
I do need a little noise
Something with which to rhyme
The city’s harmony
Sound more like a symphony
Where the night time has a shine


I hear them say, Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez
But I say, Let’em stay
I don’t want the good times to roll away
