Nothing But A Good Time


So I’ve been trying to pick a song that describes me and my life. As this is not an easy quest, the song changes depending on my mood and what’s been going on in my life. At this current moment I decided that the song that almost perfectly describes my state of mind is Nothing But a Good Time by Poison.

The song was released in 1988 and reached #6 on Billboard Top 100. It later was used in the musical Rock of Ages, along with the movie. In both of these it is a combo song, in the musical it is a combination of “Just Like Paradise/Nothing But a Good Time” sung by Lonny & co. In the film it is a combo of “Sister Christian/Just Like Paradise/Nothing But a Good Time“, sung by Sherri (Julianne Hough), Drew (Diego Boneta) <3, Lonny (Russell Brand), Dennis (Alec Baldwin), & co.

So here’s how it relates.

I go to college, work two jobs, T.A., and volunteer once a week. I’m always working and saving money, but always feel so packed as I try to do everything. Sometimes I wish I could just go off and “look for a good time”.

How it doesn’t realate is that I’m not into girls so I don’t have one to hang out with Saturday night and I don’t spend my money on women and wine. I’m straight and a straight-edge. And I always know what bed I wake up in, because its my own, alone. The only time I don’t wake up in my bed, is when I’ve been pulling an all-nighter.

Now Listen
Not a dime, I can’t pay my rent
I can barely make it through the week
Saturday night I’d like to make my girl
But right now I can’t make ends meet

I’m always workin’ slavin’ every day
Gotta get away from that same old same old
I need a chance just to get away
If you could hear me think this is what I’d say

Chorus:
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this

They say I spend my money on women and wine
But I couldn’t tell you where I spent last night
I’m really sorry about the shape I’m in
I just like my fun every now and then

I’m always workin’ slavin’ every day
Gotta get away from that same old same old
I need a chance just to get away
If you could hear me think this is what I’d say

Chorus:
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this

You see I raise a toast to all of us
Who are breakin’ our backs every day
If wantin’ the good life is such a crime
Lord, then put me away
Here’s to ya

Guitar Solo 

Chorus:
Don’t need nothin’ but a good time
How can I resist
Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time
And it don’t get better than this

Here’s the link to the complete music video. This was so me today, I had to complete a herculean task, that is wash a gazillion dishes.

This one isn’t complete, but if you don’t mind that I hope you enjoy.
