"The Good Life" as written by and Bruce Hornsby....
I'm gonna buy a big red truck
Then a rabbit's foot for real good luck
Gonna get me some plastic gunga dins
And I'll buy a big house to put 'em all in

I'll buy a new suit when I'm feelin' down
Picks me up and I'll show it around
I'll wear it once or twice I'm sure
Then I'll get another when feelin' the urge

I'm living the good life
I got my beautiful things so high as a kite
Living the good life
I'm flying by so high in the sky

I'll buy the special meal with the prize
And toys with the motorized blinkin' eyes
And lunch and dinner there I'll be
My favorite character eluding me

There's a sale down at the Five And Dime
And everything's going for dirt this time
I don't need this but it's so cheap
The visions of a bargain in my sleep

I'm living the good life
I got my beautiful things so high as a kite
Living the good life
I'm flying by so high in the sky

Living the good life
I got my beautiful things so high as a kite
I'm living the good life
I'm flying by so high in the sky

These wonderful lives everywhere
A house full of things but I don't care
I wonder as I'm sitting there
Maybe I'll feel better in a brand new chair

I'm living a good life
I got my beautiful things so high as a kite
Living a good life
I'm flying by so high in the sky

Living the good life
I got my beautiful things so high as a kite
I'm living the good life
I'm flying by so high in the sky

I'm living a good life
I've got my beautiful things so high as a kite
Living a good life
I'm flying by so high as a kite
High as the sky
