Some Good News Would be Nice (Words and Music by Alan Gillis)

Verse 1
The bills keep getting higher like the letters from the bank
Everybody wants something I don't have
Now the roof is leaking and the TV's on the blink
If another thing goes wrong I'm really gonna sink

I'd try to win the lottery buy I can't afford the price
It's time my luck was changing and some good news
Some good news would be nice

Verse 2
I've finally hit rock bottom - I should be looking up
At least that's what I thought until my car broke down
It's running up repair bills that I can't afford
It's time I saw some light
It's a never ending struggle - a never ending fight


If it wasn't for the bad luck I'd have no luck at all
If it wasn't for the bad news then the mailman wouldn't call
They say that when you're down and out the only way is up
I'm not ready to give up yet but some good news
Some good news would be nice
