The Good Life

(unreleased song, 1986)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

Winter home
in California
Who can live with those
Crazies all the time
I wish I
Had those kind of problems
Instead of
Where's the rent coming from
Yeah, oh yeah

Chorus:

Tell me what is
the good life
Mercedes Benz in the drive?
Tell me what is
the good life
Tell me what is

Verse 2:

Look around
Times are a-changing
'60s kids all grown up now
Ideals fade just like a record
Silence plays
Jackie paper lost his way
Oh yeah

Chorus:

Tell me what is
the good life
Mercedes Benz in the drive?
Tell me what is
the good life
Tell me what is

Bridge:

And I know that
you judge me
It's all around me
yes, all around
And I know that
you judge me
By what's
in my pocket, Baby

Chorus:

Tell me what is
the good life
Mercedes Benz in the drive?
Tell me what is
the good life
the good life
the good life
