Good Thing Going Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

It started out like a song
We started quiet and slow with no surprise
Then one morning, I woke to realize
We have a good thing going

It's not that nothing went wrong
Some angry moment of course, but just a few
And only moments no more because we knew
We had a good thing going

And if I wanted too much, was that such a mistake?
Half the time you never wanted enough
Oh wake up, I don't make that a crime
And while it's going along
You take for granted some love will wear away

We took for granted a lot, and still I say
It could have kept on growing
Instead of just kept on
We had a good thing going, going, gone

And if I wanted too much, was that such a mistake?
Half the time you never wanted enough
Oh wake up, I don't make that a crime
And while it's going along
You take for granted some love will wear away

We took for granted a lot, and still I say
It could have kept on going
Instead of just kept on
We had a good thing going, going, gone
