Can't We Be Friends? Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I thought I'd found the man of my dreams
Now it seems, this is how the story ends
He's going to turn me down and say
Can't we be friends
Verse 2
I thought for once it couldn't go wrong
Not for long, I can see the way this ends
He's going to turn me down and say
Can't we be friends
Verse 3
Never again, through with love
Through with men
They play their game without shame
And who's to blame
Verse 4
I thought I'd found a man I could trust
What a bust, this is how the story ends
He's going to turn me down and say
Can't we be friends
Verse 5
Yes, I thought I knew the wheat from the chaff
What a laugh, this is how our story ends
I'll let her turn me down and say
Can't we be friends
Verse 6
I acted like a kid out of school
What a fool, now I see this is the end
I'll let her turn me down and say
Can't we be friends
Verse 7
Oh what should I give
Though he gave me the air
Why should I cry
He was sigh and wonder why
Verse 8
Yes, I should have seen the signal to stop
What a flop, this is how the story ends
She's gonna turn me down and say
Can't we be friends
Verse 9
What should I give
Though he gave me the air
And why should I cry
He was sigh and wonder why
Verse 10
I should have seen the signal to stop
What a flop, this is how the story ends
I let him turn me down and say
Verse 11
Can't we be, can't we be, can't we be
Can't we be, can't we be, can't we be friends
Oh yes
