Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Might as Well Have a Good Time Lyrics

Last updated:

(Lyrics by Judy Henske, Music by Craig Doerge)

There are windows on the water
Lighting up the silver strand
Shining on the sea
Shining on the sea

And the ocean's just a player
On an old piano
Who repeats one melody
Who repeats one melody

Chorus
I belong on the shore
Hustlin' nickels and dimes
'Cause it ain't long
Before it's gone
You might as well have a good time

Well the elbows of his jacket
Are blue and shiny
He's drunk and gone to seed
Drunk and gone to seed

And he mumbles as he plays
The only song he knows
It's the only song he knows
It's the only song he needs

Chorus
I belong on the shore
Hustlin' nickels and dimes
'Cause it ain't long
Before it's gone
You might as well have a good time

All his restless music
Don't mean a damn thing to me
The shallow or the deep
Said, the shallow or the deep

So if you're free this evening
We'll go out together
And party 'til we sleep
Party 'til we sleep

Chorus
I belong on the shore
Hustlin' nickels and dimes
'Cause it ain't long
Before it's gone
You might as well have a good time.
