Lyrics

Good times for a change See, the luck I've had Can make a good man Turn bad

So please, please, please Let me, let me, let me Let me get what I want This time

Haven't had a dream in a long time See, the life I've had Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life Let me get what I want Lord knows, it would be the first time Lord knows, it would be the first time
