Good Times
Jerry Butler Lyrics

Got no job and my pockets
They don't jingle
But as long you belong to me
There's gonna be good times

Then look back, oh
I can't afford to take you places
But as long as you have faith in me
There's gonna be good times

There's gonna be good times
Gonna have the world on a silver platter
And all that's ever gonna
Matter to me is how to make you happy

But for now, now, now, girl
All I've got are hopes to offer
And I know as long as
You're here with me

There's gonna be good times
Gonna be good times, yeah

We'll have the world on a silver platter
But for now yeah, yeah, yeah

On this day in 1965 {March 6th} Jerry Butler performed "Good Times" on the syndicated television program 'Hollywood A Go-Go'... On that exact day, March 6th, it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; eventually it peaked at #64 and spent 4 weeks on the Top 100... It reached #33 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart... Mr. Butler celebrated his 73rd birthday this past December 8th...

Les Brown

Well it didn't do too bad. It reached #33 on the R&B charts and hung around for 5 weeks. But Jr. Walker had "Shotgun" as #1 at the same time and that dominated for 17 weeks on the charts.
