"Any Friend of Diane's" is the tenth and final track from Pacific Daydream, released on October 27th, 2017.

Overview

"Any Friend of Diane's" is the name of the 6th episode of the 1st season of the TV show "Cheers."

In an October 2017 interview for marketplace.org Rivers indicates that the lyric about a "20 dollar tip" was based on a real event: "I delivered pizza for Domino's and on New Year's Eve I got a $20 tip. I've never forgotten that, it's just made my life." In an NPR interview from the same month Rivers said that the song is not about a single woman but rather many women who were very supportive and helpful during the early stages of his musical career. He gave the example of his former boss at Domino's Pizza who "painted [his] band's logo on the back of [his] jean jacket."

Lyrics

Any friend of Diane's is a friend of mine
Any friend of Diane's is a friend of mine
Home is where the heart is
Any friend of Diane's is a friend of mine

Working at Papa John's, I was making good bread
Got a 20 dollar tip on New Year's
And I moved out to LA
She drew me up a map with a fountain pen
She took me to Hermosa
With the boys from 'round the way

Headbang in the crowd, dive from the stage
With black hair and a Smiths shirt
Meat is Murder
I asked her if she had a boyfriend, she said no
I asked her if she had a girlfriend
She said "hell' I wouldn't know."

We went down to the bank of the river
An she washed my dirty hands
I'd been hanging around in a cloud of shame
But the she led me to taste the cold water

Diane would help me pass out all the fliers
I became a big shot and she got sick one day
I still have the map she drew for me
I'd be lost without it, there's so much I want to say
