Lyrics

I'm just a friend of a friend
And I'd like to get to know you too
And see what you are going through

I'm not just after sex
I want to bask in the delight that is your womanhood
And call your name, Alice

I read the program by the light on my phone
But all I could think about was being with you alone yeah, yeah
And all the players in the orchestra pit were playing perfectly fine
But I just didn't get it yeah, yeah

Then you dropped your flowers on the ground
Some day I know that you will come around
No hate, I know it is what it is
Deep down, I know you're just a friend of a friend

I'm just a friend of a friend
And I'd like to be all over you
Sometimes it's hard to know what I should do

Sweetheart of Sigma Chi
You make me wish I was a Catholic
With only just a year or two to live

I read the program by the light on my phone
But all I could think about was being with you alone yeah, yeah
And all the players in the orchestra pit were playing perfectly fine
But I just didn't get it yeah, yeah

Then you dropped your flowers on the ground
Some day I know that you will come around
No hate, I know it is what it is
Deep down, I know you're just a friend of a friend

I read the program by the light on my phone
But all I could think about was being with you alone yeah, yeah
And all the players in the orchestra pit were playing perfectly fine
But I just didn't get it yeah, yeah

Then you dropped your flowers on the ground
Some day I know that you will come around
No hate, I know it is what it is
Deep down, I know you're just a friend of a friend
