Song of the Day #4,161: ‘Good As Hell’ – Lizzo

Like the other Lizzo song on this week’s Billboard Top Ten, ‘Good As Hell’ found its success a few years after its initial release.

This track, which currently sits at #6 on the Hot 100, was included on the soundtrack of the 2016 film Barbershop: The Next Cut and failed to find a wider audience at the time. But the mega-success of ‘Truth Hurts’ put a spotlight on Lizzo’s earlier singles and this song found new life.

Couldn’t have happened to a better song, or a better artist. This is a self-love anthem for the ages.

[Chorus]
I do my hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)

[Verse 1]
Woo, child, tired of the bullshit
Go on, dust your shoulders off, keep it moving
Yes, Lord, tryna get some new shit
In there, swimwear, going-to-the-pool shit
Come now, come dry your eyes
You know you a star, you can touch the sky
I know that it’s hard but you have to try
If you need advice, let me simplify

[Pre-Chorus]
If he don’t love you anymore
Just walk your fine ass out the door

[Chorus]
I do my hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)
(Feeling good as hell)
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)

[Verse 2]
Woo, girl, need to kick off your shoes
Gotta take a deep breath, time to focus on you
All the big fights, long nights that you been through
I got a bottle of tequila I been saving for you
Boss up and change your life
You can have it all, no sacrifice
I know he did you wrong, we can make it right
So go and let it all hang out tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause he don’t love you anymore
So walk your fine ass out the door

[Chorus]
And do your hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell) (Show it off tonight)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell) (And we gon’ be alright)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)

[Pre-Chorus]
Hmm, yeah, alright
Listen, if he don’t love you anymore
Then walk your fine ass out the door

[Chorus]
And do your hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell) (Woo-hoo)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell) (Show it off tonight)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell) (And we gon’ make it right)
Hair toss, check my nails
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)
(Feelin’ good as hell)
Baby, how you feelin’? (Feelin’ good as hell)

    Yaaaas! Love this song. And happy to see that Lizzo got the most Grammy nominations, though it remains a mystery how 2016 (17? 18?) music can qualify for 2019.
