"Have a Good Time" as written by and Paul Simon....
Yesterday it was my birthday
I hung one more year on the line
I should be depressed
My life's a mess
But I'm having a good time

I've been loving and loving
And loving
I'm exhausted from loving so well
I should go to bed
But a voice in my head
Says â??Ah, What the hellâ??

Have a good time

Paranoia strikes deep in the heartland
But I think it's all overdone
Exaggerating this exaggerating that
They don't have no fun

I don't believe what I read in the papers
They're just out to capture my dime
I ain't worrying
And I ain't scurrying
I'm having a good time

Have a good time

Maybe I'm laughing my way to disaster
Maybe my race has been run
Maybe I'm blind
To the fate of mankind
But what can be done?

So God bless the goods we was given
And God bless the U. S. of A.
And God bless the standard of livin'
Let's keep it that way
And we'll all have a good time

Have a good time

    General CommentA liberal's (Simon) view of the conservative's mindset. As a conservative, I don't agree with most of it, but Simon is more fair than most liberals with this characterization.

    He can hate my politics/worldview all he wants - I'm still a huge fan of his.

    General CommentThis song is about optimism, not liberals or conservatives. There are plenty of optimistic conservatives, as well as pessimistic liberals.
