My Best Was Never Good Enough

My Best Was Never Good Enough

Possibly the shortest song with more messages! I think we do not have to do things seeking the approval of others, we have to do things with a deeper purpose like our own improvement, or help others, or for being an example for other people…

Every cloud has a silver lining, every dog has his day
She said, “Now don’t say nothin’
if you don’t have something nice to say.”
The tough, now they get going, when the going gets tough
But for you my best was never good enough

“Now don’t try for a home run, baby
If you can get the job done with a hit”
Remember, “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits”
“The sun don’t shine on a sleepin’ dog’s ass”
And all the rest of that stuff
But for you my best was never good enough

“If God gives you nothin’ but lemons, then you make some lemonade”
“The early bird catches the fuckin’ worm,
Rome wasn’t built in a day”

“Now life’s like a box of chocolates,
You never know what you’re going to get”
“Stupid is as stupid does and all the rest of that shit”

Come’on pretty baby, call my bluff
‘Cause for you my best was never good enough

Columbia Records. The Ghost Of Tom Joad. Bruce Springsteen 1995
