When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
Give her all your spare time,
Love and treat her right.

I mistreated my baby
And I can't see no reason why.
I mistreated my baby
And I can't see no reason why.
Any time I think about it
I just wring my hands and cry.

Wonder could I ever apologize
Or would she sympathize with me?
Would she sympathize with me?
She's a brown-skin woman,
Just as sweet as a girlfriend can be.

Babe, I may be right or wrong.
Babe, it's your opinion,
Well, I may be right or wrong.
Watch your close friend, baby,
Then your enemies can't do you no harm.

When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
Give her all your spare time,
Love and treat her right.
