"Having a Good Time" as written by Philip Parris Lynott and Snowy White....
Me and my buddies, we're going to get drunk
We're going to go out on the town
We'll be checking it out, slipping it in
And stepping out of line
You know everybody likes to get a little crazy
In their own particular way
But my buddies and I, we go over the top
And we're going over again today

We'll be having a good time
Passing the by-line
Having a good time
You know it's a rock and roll pastime

It might be typical, topical or maybe tropical
That doesn't mean anything
If you're political, practical
Then it's improbable that you do anything
But me and my buddies, we like to go crazy
We like to go over the hill
Hey, woman, will you be there? Because my buddies and I will

Having a good time
Passing the by-line
We'll be having a good time
It's a rock and roll pastime

"Hey, snowy, play a bit for me
That was snowy white
And he likes err it in the night
The next to play
I must say, is Scott Gorham
And away"

We'll be having a good time
Passing the by-line
Having a good time
It's a rock and roll pastime

Let's play that one more time
Hit me with that drum, Brian
Hit me as hard as you can
Oh yes, that's they way I like it
Do it again, do it again, let's do it again

Having a good time
Oh yes, I like this
Having a good time
Typical, topical, who cares?
Having a good time
Political, practical, impossible
Having a good time

Don't ask me why, Jack
Having a good time
Ho! ho! ho! ho! ho!
Having a good time
Having a wild time
Having a good time
I'm slipping on the inside
Having a good time
That's fine, having a good time
Having a good time
Drinking Beaujolais
No, that doesn't rhyme
Having a good time
I'm talking from the top of my head
Having a good time
To the bottom of your soul

    General CommentMassive Lizzy fan, out of all their songs this is one of my faves. Just effortless lizzy good time happy rock song. Band is tight as hell, Phil's silly ad libs. They just make it look easy.
