"If You Really Want To Be My Friend" lyrics

If You Really Want To Be My Friend

If you really want to be
My friend
Let me live it up
Like I used to do
If you really want
To understand me
There's some giving up
We got to do

I know everybody wants
To be your man
I don't want to tie you up
Go ahead, you're free
And I never want
To scar you with my brand
We could live it up
Just a you and me

If you really want
To understand a man
Let him off the lead sometimes
Set him free
If you really, really want
To be my friend
Give me the look of love
Not jealousy

I know you think
That life is a thriller
You play the vamp
I play the killer
Now baby, what's the use of fighting?
By the last reel
We'll be crying
Crying, crying
Ah, yeah

If you really want to be
My man
Get your nails out
Of my back
Stop using me
You know
I really
Really want to be your friend
But just a little faith
Is all we need

I don't want no dog eat
Dog world for you and me
Get your nails out
Stop bleeding me
You know, people tell me
You are a vulture
Say you're a sore
In a cancer culture
Ah, but you got a little charm around you
I'll be there when they finally hound you
Hound you, hound you
Ooh, yeah

If you really want
To be my friend
And I really want
To understand you, baby

If you really want
To be my friend

If you really want
To understand me

I really want
To be your man
I want to try to give you a helping hand
Live it up
Yes I do
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah

I really want
To be your friend
I want to push you when you're up
And pull you when you're down

If you really want
To understand me
I'll tell you something
That love can't thrive on jealousy
Ah no
Ah no

I really want
To understand you
Make me try to understand, baby
Yes I do

I really want
To be your man
Cause understanding
Is something everybody needs
Oh, yeah

I really want to be your friend
And I love you
Love you
Yes, I do
