Green, Al - One Of These Good Old Days Lyrics

Open your eyes,
So you can see,
Little girl,
That you hurt me,

Talkin' foolishly,
About lies,
Never really knowin' the reason why.

I must have been dazed,
Cause' I don't know,
But that's the price,
You have to pay.

See, what I feel is real,
Won't me to stay, I wili,
Ya been lovin' me,
For years, baby.

Yeah, aw,
Talkin' bout lovin' you,

Hey, One of these good ole days
Talkin' bout lovin' you

Time and time again,
I wonted you to be my friend (My friend)
Gonna love you, till the end,
Baby! (Baby)

Here somethin' else, little girl,
Deep down inside, (Down inside)
You know you caught me by surprise (Yeah, ay)
Now I finally opened my eyes, baby.
Hey, I must have been dazed,
Cause' I don't know,
But that's the price,
You have to pay.

Yeah, listen here!
Hey, talking bout lovin you,
You haven't seen anything, girl! (Yeah, baby!)
One of these good ole days,
One of these good ole days!
After I get myself together, baby!
Talkin' bout lovin you!
When you think about it
Let me think about it
One of these good ole days,
One of these good ole days!
You won't have to do anythang,
But call your name

Green, Al One Of These Good Old Days Comments
  1. Mervyn Codrington

    This album is remarkable,in that the production is top notch,you can buy this album today,and feel it was produced.this year,you cant get this kind of longevity often,a truly masterpiece of an album,that was created in the early 70'S,i was 15 or 16,and i still,we should expose our children and grandkids to this music ,look how these.artistes were dressed ,men and women,and they handled.themselves with dignity,the good old days for black musicians and singers.

  35. Bushido-Kai Martial Arts

    I still have the original 33 1/3 LP my father bought back in 72 when this was released. I grew up listening to this, and every Al Green song. This still hits hard to this day. The only singer I've heard come anywhere close to Al's voice was DeAngelo in hs Brown Sugar days. He's the only person I can think who may have been able to cover an Al Green song, and not get beat

    MO Cancer

    So true#facts

    Deepest song on the album.

    Jennifer Monroe

    I concur. My personal favorite song on this excellent album and yet the shortest track if I'm not mistaken; don't want this splendid piece to conclude so suddenly. l remember my father playing this during the 70s here in DC.
