Good Thing Going
Sugar Minott Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Bad news, bad news
I heard you're packing to leave
I come running right over
I just couldn't believe it
I couldn't believe it

Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away
We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing

I've never done you no wrong
I never hit you when you're down
I always gave you good thing
I never ran around
I never ran around

Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away
We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing

There's something you ought to know
If you're fixing to go
I can't make it without you
No no no no, no no no no
No no no no, no no no no

Oh baby, baby
You must be out of your mind
Do you know what you're kicking away
We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing

We've got a good thing goin', baby
We've got a groovy thing
