"Good Times" as written by and Bernard/rodgers Edwards....
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Our new state of mind, these are the good times
Happy days are here again
The time is right for makin' friends
Let's get together, how 'bout a quarter to ten
Come tomorrow, let's all do it again
Boys will be boys, better let them have their toys
Girls will be girls, cute pony tails and curls
Must put an end to this stress and strife
I think I want to live the sporting life
Good times, these are the good times

Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Our new state of mind, these are the good times
A rumor has it that it's getting late
Time marches on, just can't wait
The clock keeps turning, why hesitate
You silly fool, you can't change your fate
Let's cut the rug, little jive and jitterbug
We want the best, we won't settle for less
Don't be a drag, participate
Clams on the half shell and roller skates, roller skates
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Our new state of mind, these are the good times
Good times

A rumor has it that it's getting late
Time marches on, just can't wait
The clock keeps turning, why hesitate
You silly fool, you can't change your fate
Let's cut the rug, little jive and jitterbug
We want the best, we won't settle for less
Don't be a drag, participate
Clams on the half shell and roller skates, roller skates
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Our new state of mind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Our new state of mind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times

    General CommentThis song is one of the definitive drug soaked, party anthems of the late '70's.

    This song offers perfect theater-of-the-mind. A smoky nightclub with flashy clothes. Middle class kid's in their 20's spending their paychecks on rum and coke and, if it's a good week, going in with a couple friends on an eightball. Hitting the dance floor with loose women with no bras and tall, dark men with big hair.

    Around the dance floor are all of the drug dealers and high rollers in high-back vinyl booths watching the action over the cigarette smoke and the din of noises coming off the crowded dance floor.

    Great song.

    General CommentGood Times is the symbolic cultural rejection of the Black"movement"in favor of the party materialistic lifestyle still prevalent today.
    "Lets put an end to this stress and srife,I want to live the sporting life"In other words,no more confronting white society,now we want what white society has and to hell with the Negroes at the bottom.

    General CommentRiverman, that actually is pretty racist. And a pretty stupid thing to say, it doesn't make sense.

    General CommentThis song has a strong will to be THE optimistic anthem. CARPE DIEM. They Rodgers and Edwards knew they held a big one between hands, and wouldn't lose the chance of exporting a positive and eternal message of: let yourself LIVE. Drop the attitude and bad moods. This song is full of good advises, that your old man could give you anytime:

    "Leave your cares behind
    Happy days are here again
    The time is right for makin' friends
    Let's get together
    Live the sporting life
    Time marches on, just can't wait
    The clock keeps turning, why hesitate
    Want the best
    Don't be a drag, participate

    Can't see other meaning to this gorgeous megasong,
