Good Enough
(c) 2013 Pamela Cardullo Ortiz

I am good when you need stockings
I’m good when you need bread
But when your heart is hungry
You turn elsewhere instead.
Don’t you think it hurts me deeply?
Don't you think I feel things too?
The way I feel about you,
It is powerful and true.
Don’t you think it hurts me deeply?
Don't you think I feel things too?
The way I feel about you,
It is powerful and true.

I was good enough on Monday
When I caught you by the well,
But when I see you Sunday
You act like I’m going to Hell.
Well, I was good enough for Mary,
I was good enough for Sue.
I was good enough for Maggie.
Aint’ I good enough for you?
I was good enough for Mary,
I was good enough for Sue.
I was good enough for Maggie.
Aint’ I good enough for you?

Would you rather be a pauper,
Or be my captive queen?
You could be my Cleopatra
And I’ll be Mark Antony.
And you’ll ride in regal splendor
As long as you are in my grasp.
Would you be like Cleopatra,
Give it all up for an asp?
And you’ll ride in regal splendor
As long as you are in my grasp.
Would you be like Cleopatra,
Give it all up for an asp?

Oh, love is for the landed,
Those of a certain class.
The landless poor are lucky
Just to get a piece of ass.
So when you’re in your shanty,
Alone and feeling blue,
Just remember what I offered,
‘Cause it’s good enough for you.
Don’t you think it hurts me deeply?
Don’t you think I feel things too?
I was good enough for Mary,
I was good enough for Sue.
So when you’re in your shanty,
All alone and feeling blue,
Just remember what I offered,
‘Cause it’s good enough for you.
