Good As Gold
The Beautiful South Lyrics


Don't know what I'm doing here
I'll carry on regardless
Got enough money for one more beer
I'll carry on regardless

Good as gold, but stupid as mud
He'll carry on regardless
They'll bleed his heart 'til there's no more blood
But carry on regardless
Carry on with laugh
Carry on with cry
Carry on with brown under moonlit sky

I want my love, my joy, my laugh, my smile, my needs
Not in the star signs
Or the palm that she reads
I want my sun-drenched, wind-swept Ingrid Bergman kiss
Not in the next life
I want it in this
I want it in this

Got one note to last all week
I'll carry on regardless
The hill to happiness is far too steep
I'll carry on regardless

Dried his mouth in the Memphis sun
He carried on regardless
Tried to smile and he bit his tongue
But carry on regardless

Carry on with work
Carry on with love
Carry on with cheering
Anything above

I want my love, my joy, my laugh, my smile, my needs
Not in the star signs
Or the palm that she reads
I want my sun-drenched, wind-swept Ingrid Bergman kiss
Not in the next life
I'll have it in this
I'll have it in this

I don't want silver, I just want gold
Carry on regardless
Bronze is for the sick and the old
But carry on regardless

I want my love, my joy, my laugh, my smile, my needs
Not in the star signs
Or the palm that she reads
I want my sun-drenched, wind-swept Ingrid Bergman kiss
Not in the next life
I'll have it in this
I'll have it in this

Haven't heard this in well over twenty years, but my mind randomly started singing it to me and I had to immediately come here and remember how good it is. Straight into my music playlist, I'm not forgetting about it again.

Beautiful South is; It's good feelings, fellow travelers, good friends, magic, fantasy, poem and a fairy tale turned into music

Bob Mackey

Perfect description!

Clemdane

I love this song! It just popped into my head today. I remember buying it when it came out, something I rarely do. Sounds just as good now. Wow, I knew nearly nothing about this band. Gonna go google.

John Robertson

Total genius...Jacqui and Paul still doing great

Graeme Watson

I haven’t heard this great song for 20+ years till it popped in my head yesterday

AudiophileTubes

God this is SO good! I'm going to go find my old CD copy of 'Miaow', and never put it away again!

Jacqui is a legend with such a beautiful voice. Paul's voice is very similar to my own I think he's vocal reach is amazing. I used to sing these at the top of my lungs to all my kids. Now I'm sick my voice is going and it makes me sad. I love this band I love the house Martins it's just great music and in today's generation very underrated 🎼❤❤
