My Best Was Never Good Enough


Auteur/Compositeur : Bruce Springsteen

Texte chanson

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
