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
