Yazoo - Good Times Lyrics



Sometimes I feel,
I'll never belong
I want to get there so bad
But it's taking so long
Sometimes I feel
Like letting go
But when it comes right down to it, baby
Who wants to know? (no-one)

[Chorus]
And I find (for a good time)
I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)
Now I find (for a good time)
I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)

Standing on the outside
I'm looking in
Trying to be heard
I don't know where to begin
Help me baby show me how
To be a part of it all and all
Right here - and now

[Chorus]

Hands are full of silver
My pockets full of gold
It's time I'm trying to spend
And I can't get myself sold
I'm a bargain honey
I'm a giveaway
And you can have it all
If you'd use up my day.

[Chorus]

    Good Times
    Yazoo
    Sometimes I feel,
    I'll never belong
    I want to get there so bad
    But it's taking so long
    Sometimes I feel
    Like letting go
    But when it comes right down to it, baby
    Who wants to know? (no-one)
    And I find (for a good time)
    I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)
    Now I find (for a good time)
    I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)
    Standing on the outside
    I'm looking in
    Trying to be heard
    I don't know where to begin
    Help me baby show me how
    To be a part of it all and all
    Right here, and now
    And I find (for a good time)
    I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)
    Now I find (for a good time)
    I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)
    Hands are full of silver
    My pockets full of gold
    It's time I'm trying to spend
    And I can't get myself sold
    I'm a bargain honey
    I'm a giveaway
    And you can have it all
    If you'd use up my day.
    And I find (for a good time)
    I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)
    Now I find (for a good time)
    I'm knocking for a good time (for a good time)

    the brain is a funny thing,just listened to the full album after 30 odd years and remember every word form every song but struggle to remember what i had for dinner yesterday.

  8. RIXRADvidz

    Early Electronica when it still had a SouL

  9. Caroline Nadieska Peña

    Great song! I love it since I was a child in the 80's 😊

  10. Hugh K. Ayers

    Vince Clarke knows how to make synth-pop people want to buy. That's why people listen to what he's got to say. And this is a good thing.

  11. Paul Kennedy

    Hi All, Alison has got a right old dirty laugh on her! It was a bit of a shock to hear it being used on `The Macarena`...

    David

    Also years before that in a detroit techno song. Can't remember the name.

    aramanth

    Her laugh from "Situation" was also used on the song "I Wanna Have Some Fun" by Samantha Fox!

  12. Adam Sukenick

    Good song but runs a little too long.

  13. thezenbum

    awesome

  14. Miguel Hernandez

    genial....

  15. David Lee

    Sounds like 'State Farm' B-side of 'Nobodies Diary'

  16. TheBusterMan

    Nasty digital drum machine.

  17. Zoltán Horváth

    De jó ez a YAZOO szám,valóban a második sorlemezükön van,mely itt látható is! ZOLI

  18. Meanmanmartin2007

    Thanks for uploading this.

    One thing that I have noticed on this version is that there is a slightly longer gap between "I think you should do the first one again vince" and the laughter. On the vinyl and cassette, the laughter appears almost second afterwards.

    Any reason as to why there might have been a longer gap on this version?

    aramanth

    I noticed that too!! Also I can't hear Alison sing "E.C. Radcliffe" their producer's name at the end either. Don't know the reason for that. But yeah, the there is a longer gap than normal.
