These Are My Friends by The Black Velvetines

She was my friend
no shes not yours
but can we share
my friend of course

We went down twice
and then three more
cause all my friends
love the same whore

I dont know why
but maybe they
can shed some light
over my blank head

Cause i see women all the time
they created clouds
and count to nine

We were at nine
now twelve more friends
get to share
and they just dont seem to care
no no no no

i have four friends
yeah they dont know me
but they all shine
in between HER Kitty.
