My Friends Lyrics

07 My Friends

 

My friends my dear friends

And lovers oh my lovers

I'd leave you for them

 

They got a hand on my back

 

Mama has money now and mama has friends

She's making rags for some uptown hags

With their money in bags

And why are you so sad

 

Why are you always so sad

 

Why do I not understand

Why don't I see what it is you see

Why can't I live and just be

 

I'm full of guilt

I am full of guilt

You're very tall you're very handsome

You have it all your skin smells like man

 

You never know how I ache

You will never know how I ache

 

Ever considered the sea

I heard you had to be strong

Why not float around with me

It won't take you so long

 

You can go where I'm at

You can hang around with me

 

 

A few good men will go where they ought

Where they ought to be

And a few good mothers go for what they

What they ought to teach

 

I long for a touch or reminder of us but

But it must not be

 

And a few strong branches over water reach

For what they ought not reach

 

I hope your mother knows where it is you have been

I hope your mother knows what it is you have seen

 

She'd be so proud
