MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Can't We Be Friends?

MOSE ALLISON
"Can't We Be Friends?"
(Paul James / Kay Swift)

I thought I'd found the man of my dreams.
Now it seems, This is how the story ends
He's goin' to turn me down and say,
"Can't We Be Friends?"

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong.
Not for long! I can see the way this ends
Never again! Through with Love,
Thought with men!
They play their game without shame, and who's to blame?

I thought I'd found a man I could trust.
What a bust! This is how the story ends
He's goin' to turn me down and say,
"Can't We Be Friends?"
