About That's Good

"That's Good" is a song by the American new wave band Devo, written by Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale. It appears on their fifth studio album Oh, No! It's Devo. According to Casale, "the lyrics deal with the ambiguity that if everybody wants what you want, how can everybody have it if everybody wants it and what happens when everybody tries to get it, and maybe you should change what you want."

Everybody it's a good thing
Everybody wants a good thing
Everybody ain't it true that
Everybody's looking for the same thing

Ain't it true there's just no doubt
There's some things that you can't do without
And that's good
Ain't it true as the sun that shines
You got yours and you got mine
And that's good

Everybody just like you it's true
Everybody wants a good thing too

Everybody it's a good thing
Everybody wants a good thing
Everybody ain't it true that
Everybody's looking for the same thing

Ain't it true there's room for doubt
Maybe some things that you can do without
And that's good

Everybody just like you it's true
Everybody wants a good thing too

Now let's have a great big hand
For everybody who can understand
Life's a bee without a buzz
It's going great till you get stung
And let us not forget to toast
Everyone who might have missed the boat
And to everybody else who waits
Until the next one sails in again

[Repeats]
Everybody it's a good thing
Ain't it true it's a monumental good thing
