Buffett, Jimmy - Good Guys Win Lyrics

So you're looking for a hero
That you can see with your own eyes
When they don't wear the mask and cape
They're hard to recognize

Even though these are cynical times
Bear it in mind

Good guys win
Every once in while
Full grown men
Get to learn from a child
Now and then
Just when you think it won't happen again
The good guys win

Trouble all around us
Dirty tricks at every turn
Seems that we historically
Refuse to live and learn

You start to wonder if all
Hope is gone
You would be wrong

Good guys win
Every once in while
Full grown men
Get to learn from a child.
Now and then
Just when you think it won't happen again
Good guys win.

State of confusion we're so disillusioned
You turn on the news and
Good guys win
Now and then
Just when you think it won't happen again

Good guys win
Every once in while
Full grown men
Get to learn from a child
Now and then
Just when you think it won't happen again
The Good guys win.

Buffett, Jimmy Good Guys Win Comments
  1. Michael Dundee

    I grew up on Biscayne Bay just like Muellet fingers with my boat snagging mullet with a triple snag hook fishing and having a great time growing up in Miami this song brings me back there every time

  2. James VerHulst

    Love this song, love this movie

  3. Jeffrey Simpkins

    I like it when the good guys win.The bad guys idea of a win is how less became more by buddyhunchin.They get their rocks off on that cubic zirconia crap.Good guys just kick ass for an honest wage.And can reflect with with chilly ones and sleep good at night.

  4. Jeffrey Simpkins

    cant get no gooder than me.aint worrying the shit out of folks.We all need help.But sure hate to ask for it.If im judged for a bottle of ishkibaja in my hand ,so be it.

  5. Caitlyn Ruthsatz

    Oh dear lord. This is making me go through some serious nostalgia. I was 13 when I read the book and the movie came out. Sometimes it feels like I'm old, even though I'm really not.

    Luis Dominguez

    Caitlyn Ruthsatz I couldn’t agree more

    Caitlyn Ruthsatz

    @Luis Dominguez thanks. Honestly I forgot I even wrote this 😂.

    Caitlyn Ruthsatz your welcome I guess. Thanks for responding to my response 😁👌👍

    This song WAS on iTunes a few years ago, and I was fortunate to download it. What a great song! My kids watched it, and I couldn't find the song as it was a few years and a crashed hard drive later, I found it! "....full grown men get to learn from a child.." - need more of that in today's times.

    Yes, the good guys do win, more than we notice. Bad news gets more attention. Also, one persons' good guy is anothers' bad guy.

    "Hoot" is a very good movie. Shows we shouldn't treat the world like an ashtray.
