Saturday Song: Goody Two-Shoes by Adam Ant

I hated this song in college because I thought it was about me. Yes, I didn’t smoke, and I didn’t drink, and I studied hard and earned a B average while others partied. I’m still the same today, but now, I’m proud to be a goody-two-shoes and wish there were more of them in the world. Enjoy this song, whether it’s about you or not, and have a great Saturday.

  1. I felt like you did about this song about “Raise A Little Hell” by Trooper. When I actually listened to the lyrics, I realized it was about not being complacent but changing things we don’t like.

    I too was and still am a “goody two shoes” person. I never did drugs or smoked and I didn’t party. I was in church on Sundays and studying the Bible each Wednesday evening. I was one of those Jesus freaks many kids hated as well. And like you said, this would be a better world if more people were like you and me.
