It Was Good 'Til It Was Bad
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Used to be when I stared at you, you'd stare right back
Me and you and goin' fishin' and a cold six-pack
All was fine, but you had somethin' on your mind
Life, sometimes, can be so unkind

First CHORUS
It was good 'til it was bad
You were the best thing I ever had
It's different now; so sad
It was good 'til it was bad

TURNAROUND

VERSE
Are we done? Just who the hell is she?
Since when does one and one make three?
I was sleepin' on your bed 'til she came along
You two lookin' good, but I'm feelin' so alone

Repeat CHORUS

TURNAROUND

VERSE
Sometimes you leave me stranded outside on the porch
Now outside lookin' in ain't no fun, of course
I want to be with you, I beg you please
She's beautiful, but what am I, cream cheese?

Repeat CHORUS

TURNAROUND

BRIDGE
I love it when you scratch me there
Do you think she'll brush my hair?
OK, I like her fine; she's really great
Let's make life a three-way date

RIDE

Second CHORUS
It was good 'til it was bad
You were the best thing I ever had
But now we both have something new
It's so good she loves you, too

TAG
Yeah, you're so lucky she loves you, too

Description
Short Song Description:
Though the audience has to figure this out, at the beginning, the song is about a dog's love for his master. But then his master gets a girlfriend and the dog is feeling left out. But the dog makes friends with the girlfriend and they, more or less, gang up on him. In the end, it's a great three-way combination.
