Good Thing

The Mighty Maxwells
Neil McCallion


Our drummer Allan (el voz) Bartlett sings this song.  Allan, the scourge of Facebook conservatives, is without doubt, the singer in the band.  I wrote this song just for him and he sings it great.




Good Thing

Words and Music by Neil McCallion



Gimme some of that good thing, baby

Gimme something I like

All your checks in the mail, baby

Ev’ry thing’s alright

I wanna stamp out anything that keeps you away from me

I’d be hangin’ from a cliff if it would set you free



Gimme some of that good thing, baby

Gimme some of that good thing


Gimme some of that good thing, baby

You can turn out the lights

‘Cause in your hour of darkness, baby

I’ll be burnin’ bright

I’ll lift it and I’ll carry it all the way to twenty-second street

Then, baby, I’ll come runnin’ home in my stocking feet, yeah




Windows down, we’re singin’ loud with the songs on the radio

Going to a party for someone that you know

It’s gettin’ late but I can wait, you’re on your third or fourth one more beer

But don’t you worry, baby, I can get us home from here




Ah, such a sweet thing, baby, got me something I like

Another day has passed away and ev’rything’s alright

I watch you sleepin’ peacefully, may all your dreams be sweet

Tomorrow you’ll be shinin’ on ev’ryone you meet, yeah
