Post Good Times (posted)

"Good Times" by Dave Grusin and Andrew Bergman

Good Times,
Any time you meet a payment.
Good Times,
Any time you need a friend.
Good Times,
Any time you're out from under.

Not getting hassled,
not getting hustled.
Keepin' your head above water,
making a wave when you can.

Temporary lay offs,
Good Times.
Easy credit rip offs.
Good Times.
Scratchin' and surviving.
Good Times.
Hangin' in a chow line,
Good Times.
Ain't we lucky we got 'em
Good Times.

Closing theme lyrics:

Just lookin' out of the window
Watchin' the asphalt glow
Thinkin' how it all looks 'hand-me-down'
Good Times
Keepin' your head above water
Makin' a wave when you can
Temporary lay-offs
Good Times
Easy Credit rip-offs
Good Times
Aint we lucky we got 'em
Good Times

Actually, the second line from the end credits is: Watching the asphalt glow. (from the sun beating down on it.)

Thumbs down Good Times theme song

Thinking how it all looks "hand me down" has got to be wrong. That makes absolutely no sense. Also what in the world does "hangin' in a jury mean"? Will someone please get the correct words to the theme song? This has been driving me crazy for years.

The line "hangin in a jury" is very wrong. The line is "hangin and a-jivin".

The hand-me-down line is correct. When something is hand-me-down, it is all used and old, like hand-me-down clothing from an older brother or sister.

Also, they are watchin the asphalt grow. Asphalt doesn't grow. This is to point out the fact that there is no grass. The real phrase is "watching the grass grow". But in this neighborhood there is no grass so all you can do is watch the asphalt.

This is how I thought the song went:



Good times
Anytime you need a payment
Good times
Anytime you need a friend
Good times
Anytime your offered money (or) Monday (I AM NOT SURE OF THIS)
Not getting hastled not getting hustled
Keeping your hear above water
Making the wave when you can
Temporary layofss
Good times
Easy credit rip-offs
Good times
Hanging in a Job (Or) Challenge (I AM NOT SURE OF THIS)
Good times
Aint we lucky we got em
Good times

The opening lyrics have been adjusted to what is listed on the Good Times Season 1 DVD set box. The most debated line they have listed as:

Hangin' in a chow line

Unless someone can provide the sheet music, I am going with these lyrics.

Wouldn't the DVD's have closed captioning? You could find out that way.

Default HERE ARE THE CORRECT LYRICS

I found it on the website - http://www.cfhf.net/lyrics/good-time.htm. As for the lyrics in question it's "Watchin' the asphalt grow. Thinkin' how it all looks SANITIZED". Anyway I hope this helps.


OPENING THEME LYRICS

Good Times.
Any time you meet a payment. - Good Times.
Any time you need a friend. - Good Times.
Any time you’re out from under.
Not getting hassled, not getting hustled.
Keepin’ your head above water,
Making a wave when you can.

Temporary lay offs. - Good Times.
Easy credit rip offs. - Good Times.
Scratchin’ and surviving. - Good Times.
Hangin in a chow line - Good Times.
Ain’t we lucky we got ‘em - Good Times.

CLOSING THEME LYRICS

Mmmmmm
Just lookin' out of the window.
Watchin' the asphalt grow.
Thinkin' how it all looks sanitized
Good Times, yeah, yeah Good Times

Keepin' your head above water
Makin' a wave when you can

Temporary lay offs. - Good Times.
VOICE-OVER spoken by John Amos: Good Times was recorded in front of a live studio audience
Easy credit rip offs. - Good Times.
Ain't we lucky we got 'em - Good Times.
