Feelin’ good, feelin’ good
All the money in the world spent on feelin’ good
The above are a part of the chorus of the song Fool for a Cigarette/Feelin’ Good which was written by Sidney Bailey, a Memphis cab driver/songwriter and performed by Ry Cooder. I’m a fan of Cooder’s music. I first heard the song in 1974. When I first heard it I related to it right away. The song really is all about the phrase above. All the money in the world really is spent on feeling good. For years I’ve racked my brain trying to figure out what people spend money on other than something which makes them feel good and I haven’t had a lot of success coming up with alternatives.
