You're supposed to be my friend
We're supposed to get along
Hey, you're supposed to be my friend
That's right! Right?
It's hard to get you on the phone
You're never home!
You're never at my place neither
Well that makes two of us!

Well I request you be my friend
We'll spend some time taking drugs
In a bar
Or at home
In a jar, friend

But you're supposed to be
You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be my friend now

Beat me cheat me try and feed me
Lines you picked up from those trendy ladies
But always be my friend
'Cos you're supposed to be my friend
Yo start actin' like it!

I think I'll take the dog for a walk
Yeh maybe I'll meet up with some friends
Yeh maybe I'll meet up with some dogs
'Cos you're supposed to be

You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be my friend now

You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be
Supposed to be my friend
You're supposed to be my friend now

    I think one person is in love with the other and wrote this song because they're hurt, but they don't want their friend to get weirded out by too much sentimentality--b/c their friendship was about laughter and fun, and now it's awkward and strained.
