"Good Times Roll" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
Let the good times roll
Let them knock you around
Let the good times roll
Let them make you a clown

Let them leave you up in the air
Let them brush your rock and roll hair

Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll

Let the stories be told
They can say what they want
Let the photos be old
Let them show what they want

Let them leave you up in the air
Let them brush your rock and roll hair
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll-oll
Won't you let the good times roll

Good times roll

If the illusion is real
Let them give you a ride
If they got thunder appeal
Let them be on your side

Let them leave you up in the air
Let them brush your rock and roll hair
Let the good times roll
Won't you let the good times roll-oll
Let the good times roll

Let the good times roll
Won't you let the good times roll
Well let the good times roll
Let 'em roll (good times roll)

Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Ooh let the good times roll
Let 'em roll (good times roll)

Let the good times roll
(Let the good times roll)
Let the good times roll
Good times roll
(Let the good times roll)
Let the good times roll
Let 'em roll

    General CommentThis song is great...This song is about someone who spread lies...(Let the stories be told)..Let them go ahead and talk but it is okay because it is just gossip cause you know that the illusion is real and who cares what the others think...Let the good times roll cause they are here to stay...

    General CommentThis song is too repetitive, I don't like it. I came on here hoping someone would maybe discuss what they thought "thunder appeal" is. Interesting phrase for sure, but what does it mean?

    General Commentthunder phrase - probably sex appeal (crotch lightning?)
    too repetitive, i guess if you're not into rocknroll then yea. pretty much every phrase has a new synth riff or hook, not to mention different guitar counter-rhythms and melodies.

    To be honest, I thought this song was a little more sarcastic and ironic. the way he sings very monotonous and down i figured it was more of like, "oh boy... the good times... yea great" very insincere

    General CommentI'm into rock n' roll. Maybe the repetetive accusation wouldn't be as bad if they didn't repeat "Let the good times roll" 20 or so times at the end of the song :-)
