the Musical - What Was Good Enough for You Lyrics

Clyde:
What was always good enough for you, Paw?
Hate to say ain't good enough for me.
Plowin' fields and planting seeds
Till your mind and body bleeds, no way.
Up before dawn and you stop when you drop.
Then you ask your God to forgive.
Prayin' for rain, without rain there's no crop
This ain't no way to live.
What was always good enough for you, Paw?
Will not satisfy your wayward son.
Jessie James had much more fun
Building dreams with just a gun.
That's how the west was once.

Bonnie:
What was always good enough for you, Maw?
Gotta say ain't good enough for me.
Making punch and baking pies,
Painting barns and swatting flies. Oh, no.
Writing a diary is tough around here.
Boring as hell, sorry Maw.
I wanna wear diamonds, one stud for each ear.
Bright as the morning star.
What was always good enough for you, Maw?
Will not satisfy your little girl.
More to life than potting plants
I don't want to miss my chance.
I'm looking for romance.

Clyde:
This country's had it's day.
Depression and breadlines
Are all that tomorrow will bring.

Bonnie:
Tell it, Clyde.

Clyde:
The bible has got it wrong
Just look at the poor.
Babe, the meak don't inherit a thing!

Both:
There ain't nothing good enough, for us dear.
We deserve what we are gonna get.
This world should be notified.
It'll be a bumpy ride.
Thanks to Bonnie and Clyde!
