George Strait - Here For A Good Time Lyrics

I'm not gonna lay around and whine and moan
'Cause somebody done done me wrong
Don't think for a minute that I'm gonna sit around
And sing some old sad song

I believe it's half-full not a half-empty glass
Every day I wake up knowing it could be my last

I ain't here for a long time
I'm here for a good time
So bring on the sunshine
To hell with the red wine
Pour me some moon shine

When I'm gone
Put it in stone
"He left nothing behind"
I ain't here for a long time
I'm here for a good time

Folks are always dreaming 'bout
What they'd like to do
But I like to do just what I like
I'll take the chance
Dance the dance
It might be wrong
But then again it might be right

There's no way of knowing what tomorrow brings
Life's too short to waste it
I say, "Bring on anything."

I ain't here for a long time
I'm here for a good time
So bring on the sunshine
To hell with the red wine
Pour me some moon shine

When I'm gone
Put it in stone
"He left nothing behind"
I ain't here for a long time
I'm here for a good time
I ain't here for a long time
I'm here for a good time

  46. Marcus Blackwell

    Dang! My momma's boyfriend made a comeback with a song that's right on so many freakin' levels! The lesson that his majesty was trying to teach us was that everyday life should not be spent laying around & feeling miserable. Peeps just need to get up, get outside, go places, & do things that we enjoy

  68. Random Mast

    The way country is supposed to sound

  69. Tom Jones

    Great exact copy of another song.

  70. Tom Jones

    I liked this song better the first time when Huey Lewis and The News wrote it and released it in 2001 (10 years before Strait). The music sounds the same, but the title is way different. Huey's version is "We're not here for a long time, (we're here for a good time.)"

  71. thirdbase6870

    Quite tasty use of the organ

  72. Hunter Downare

    I know what country is and Luke Bryan is not as great as Greorge Strait
