“Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” by Green Day

This song by Green Day is, I think, about saying good-bye. The title, Good Riddance, is something we say when we are glad that something or someone is no longer here. I think the title is facetious (joking; being funny). He is not really glad that the person he is saying good-bye to is gone.

This song is dedicated to P.D.M. It is not “good riddance” but a loving farewell to one of the best men who ever lived.

“Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)”
by Green Day

Another turning point (time to make a major life change), a fork stuck in the road (a place or time where/when more than one option or way is possible)
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of (accept a bad situation and make it as good as possible) this test, and don’t ask why
It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time
It’s something unpredictable (not able to know the future), but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life (a great experience; the most enjoyable, interesting, and exciting experience of your life).

So take the photographs, and still frames (each individual picture in a film) in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos (permanent pictures on your body made with ink) of memories and dead skin on trial (being judged)
For what it’s worth (even though it may not be important) it was worth all the while

It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

Canadian Pharmacists Association

The Canadian Pharmacists Association, previously known as the Canadian Pharmaceutical Association, was founded in 1907 in Toronto, Ontario. CPhA is the national voice of Pharmacists in Canada, representing pharmacists practising in various fields of pharmacy in community, hospital, academia, government and corporate settings, plus pharmacy students. Its mission is advancing the health and well-being of Canadians through excellence in pharmacist care. In 2014 CPhA adopted a new governance and membership model, most provincial pharmacy advocacy associations (PPAs) and select national pharmacist associations (NPAs) have become Organizational Members of CPhA. Their individual pharmacist and pharmacy student members are now CPhA Associates. The CPhA Board of Directors is made up of representatives appointed by each Organizational Member. The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the broad direction of the association.

Americans importing viagra from Canadian pharmacy online, at the very least to cut down on their prescriptions, and sometimes cases even to afford life-saving drugs. But I’ve seen these bills before and FDA is always behind their failure – but what about this time?

    It’s really great song. As for the lyrics, “For what it’s worth” means “even though it may not be important”? I didn’t know that….. I always consider ‘For’ in the beginning of the sentence as “Because.” That’s why sometimes I don’t understand some articles exactly.
    Thanks Lucy, I feel like I’m becoming newer and newer everday…(I’m not sure this expression is correct, though)
