As Good As You've Been To This World Lyrics

by Janis Joplin

Live your loving life
You live it all the best you can
And if you pay no attention, darling
To what you might ever hear from your man

I think youre just like a servant
And try to keep it all to yourself
Dont you know what makes the world go round?
You gotta go and honey, share everywhere else
Come on, come on, come on

As good as youve been to this world
So good, I wanna be right back to you
As good as youve been now

As good as youve been to this whole wide world
So good, I wanna be
As good as youve been now, say

As good as youve been to this whole wide world
As good as youve been, babe
So good, I wanna be here

Aint no use in being faithful
I see you look at the sky
I know whats in it make you happy there
But it only make you cry

I think you got good intentions too
They dont manage to show through
Whatever you give to the world outside
I wanna give it right back to you, yes, I am
Come on, come on, come on

So you meet somebody on the street
You know you treat him mighty fine
Or you meet somebody on the street
And you give him a real hard time

Its gonna come on home, baby
I said, its gonna come right back home to you
I said, its gonna visit you now
Yes, it is, oh, yes, it is

Good as youve been to this whole wide world
Good as youve been, babe
So good, I wanna be here

Oh, good as youve been to this whole wide world
Good as youve been, babe
So good, I wanna be here

Ah, the way you love your mother
The way you love your sister, your brother
The way you love your aunt, your uncle
Anybody now, everybody now

Good as youve been, babe, hurray
Good as youve been, babe, hey
Good as youve been, babe, hey
Good as youve been, babe

Cause Im just gonna show you now
And Im just gonna make you want it now
Cause I'm just gonna keep it real

Say, good as you been, babe
Hurray, good as you been, babe
Come on, good as you been, babe
I say, good as you been, babe

Oh, daddy, good as you been, babe
My man, good as you been, babe
All right, yeah, hey
