John Entwistle – I Was Just Being Friendly lyrics

Now, I was just being friendly
No need to act like that
Don't call that policeman girl
I take what I said back
How was I to know that you weren't that kind of girl
It's kind of hard to tell, nowadays anyway.

Can't we talk this over, come here
I'm sorry if you've been offended
It wasn't what I'd intended
I take back every word I said.

I was looking for someone to tell my troubles to
That's all I wanted to do, honestly
I'm a family man and my family mustn't know
Where I go in the evenings.

Now, I was just being friendly
No need to act this way
All I did was ask you
How much I'd have to pay
How was I to know that you weren't that kind of girl
It's kind of hard to tell, nowadays anyway.

Can't we talk this over, come here
I'm sorry if you've been offended
It wasn't what I'd intended
I take back every word I said.

I was looking for someone to tell my troubles to
That's all I wanted to do, honestly
I'm a family man and my family mustn't know
Where I go in the evenings.

(Synthesizer and Guitar Solo)

I was looking for someone to tell my troubles to
That's all I wanted to do, honestly
I'm a family man and my family mustn't know
Where I go in the evenings.

Now, I was just being friendly
Wish you could understand
This wasn't meant to happen
This wasn't what I'd planned
How was I to know that you weren't that kind of girl
It's kind of hard to tell, nowadays anyway.
