about

A dear friend was also quite the womanizer, so this song is dedicated to him.

lyrics

Chorus:
THANK GOD WE’RE FRIENDS and we’re not lovers
I couldn’t handle loving you
Because you need constant distraction
And ’cause I know you’d be untrue
Your effort is Olympian although it never ends
THANK GOD WE’RE FRIENDS
THANK GOD WE’RE FRIENDS

You sure are handsome
You sure are smart
You’ve got the qualities to break somebody’s heart
You’d charm the buzz right out a bee
Your charm is so disarming that it almost works on me

But THANK GOD WE’RE FRIENDS…

You’re good at lovin’
Of that I’m sure
But with emotions you are just a bit obscure
Avoiding all direct response
Avoiding all but coital confrontations and advance

But THANK GOD WE’RE FRIENDS…

I hope our friendship
Lasts a long while
‘Cause even when I’m down you always make me smile
You’d charm a bird right out a tree
Your charm is so disarming that it almost works on me

But THANK GOD WE’RE FRIENDS…
