​Don't Let The Good Life Pass You By

This song is by Mama Cass and appears on the compilation album Mama's Big Ones (1971).

Did you ever lie and listen to a rainbow
Did you ever own a homemade apple pie
Did you ever watch a child while he was prayin'
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Did you ever hold a hand to stop its tremblin'
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky
Did you ever hold a woman while she's sleepin'
Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for lovin', not for buyin'
Gold can't get the things we really need
Just look, my friends, there's happiness in livin'
Somewhere between broke and bein' free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Well, man was made for lovin', not for buyin'
Gold can't get the things we really need
Just look, my friends, there's happiness in livin'
Somewhere between broke and bein' free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by
Friend, don't let the good life pass you by
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
