Rolling Stones, The - Good Times Lyrics




Whoa la la ta ta
Whoa la la ta ta
La la la all night long
Wanna tell you
Whoa la la ta ta
Whoa la la ta ta
La la la all night long
C'mon let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long
The evening sun is sinking low
The clock on the wall says it's time to go
I've got my plans I don't know about you
I tell you exactly what I'm gonna do
Get in the groove and let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long
It might be one o'clock it might be three
Time don't mean that much to me
Ain't felt this good since I don't know when
I might not feel this good again
So c'mon let the good time roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long
All night, all night
All night, all night long
Somebody said it might take all night long
All night, all night whoa
C'mon let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long

    Wonderful.

  5. Mr. Gorgeous

    It sounds a little melancholic, was this Sam Cooke’s last song?

    Tony Bensley

    No, Good Times wasn't his very last single, but it was on the last LP (Ain't That Good News - 1964) released in Sam Cooke's time. I've always loved Sam's original LP version. This version by the Stones is pretty good, but they don't quite make it their own, in my opinion. CHEERS!

    No. Great question though. Sam Cooke recorded the original about six months after his son drowned in 1963. Sam himself was killed almost exactly one year later, in December 1964. Sam had taken a furlough from recording after his kid died. All the (fairly few) sides he did upon returning to the studio have a depth and sadness to them. Change is gonna come is the most famous.

  6. Robert Lynch

    Great song.

  7. Societal Revival

    underrated
