You Never Had It So Good Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

The life and land around you is good, so good, so good
You never had it so good, you never had it so good
You never had it so good, you never had it so good
You never had it so good, sister

Smiles of happy faces, different styles and races
Still we're one big neighborhood
You never, I mean never ever had it so good
So good, so good, so good

Ice cream on your apple pie, that's good, that's good
Mountain streams of fish fry, yum, yum, that's good
Flag that you can wave about, that's good, that's good
A wide spread you can see right outside, good, that's good

What our forefathers said still goes, any American knows
You never had it so good, you never had it so good
You never had it so good, you never had it so good
You never had it so good, sister

Smiles of happy faces, different styles and races
Still we're one big neighborhood
You never, I mean never ever had it so good
So good, so good, so good

The corn upon the splendid plain, that's good, that's good
And frozen foods in cellophane, that's good, that's good
A hot dog in a bleacher's seat, that's good, that's good
A town hall where the people meet, that's good, that's good

Old John Hancock, he said it fine, he put it right on the line
You never had it so good, you never had it so good
You never had it so good, you never had it so good
You never had it so good, sister

Smiles of happy faces, different styles and races
Still we're one big neighborhood
You never, I mean never ever had it so good
So good, so good, so good, not ever
