Real Good Thing is the first track off of Newsboys' fifth studio album, Going Public. It was released as a single and received some airplay, but was outshined by bigger hits such as Spirit Thing and, appropriately, Shine. Nevertheless, it was still included in the compilation The Greatest Hits.


Lyrics Edit

When we don't get what we deserve
It's a real good thing (real good thing)
When we get what we don't deserve
It's a real good thing (a real good thing)

Born to sin
And then get caught
All our good deeds
Don´t mean squat

Sell the Volvo
Shred the Visa
Send the cash to Ma Theresa
Great idea
The only catch is
You don´t get saved
On merit badges

When we don't get what we deserve
It's a real good thing (real good thing)
When we get what we don't deserve
It's a real good thing (a real good thing)

Doctor´s coming
Looking grim
"Do you have a favorite hymn?"

Check your balance through the years
Sll accounts are in arrears
Guilt is bitter
Grace is sweet
Park it here
on the mercy seat

When we don't get what we deserve
It's a real good thing (real good thing)
When we get what we don't deserve
It's a real good thing (a real good thing)

When we don't get what we deserve
It's a real good thing (real good thing)
When we get what we don't deserve
It's a real good thing (a real good thing)

When we don't get what we deserve
It's a real good thing (real good thing)
When we get what we don't deserve
It's a real good thing (a real good thing)
