Good Friend Of Mine

Well I heard through the world you have travelled
News came by on the grapevine
So I hope you don’t seem to be simple, no
Cause you were a good friend of mine
We were just friends back in schooldays
Shared cigarettes, girls and wine
You got lucky, came into some money
You were a good friend of mine

You know I left school and earned money
Things were not for diversified
But you could afford to be educated
You were a good friend of mine

Said I’ve worked like a slave till my dad died
Well, mother and me, we went crying
We still bring up to the chaplain, oh Lord
You were a good friend of mine

He married my bride and bred the kids here
Told our poor to keep off the breadline
I guess you’re what they call a gay bachelor, yeah
And you’re still a good friend of mine

Now you hear me, we will be together
We’re gonna go to your place or mine
We don’t need to live if we’ve had it all
And of course you’re a good friend of mine

I said we’re healthy, my my my
You’re still a good friend of mine
