M.I.A. – My Friend lyrics

You seem to be so sad, my friend.
You seem to be upset, my friend.
It never seems to change, my friend.
You're just the way you are.

The good all dance with heart, my friend.
The trouble that we shared, my friend.
Who likes to spin around, my friend.
Got nothing else to do.

So come and dance with me, every once and a while.
La di da da di dum da da.
Come darling, dance with me.

Tell me what's on your mind, my friend.
When music makes you cry, my friend.
I have to say it again, my friend.
You're just the way you are.

A rumor goes around, my friend.
It's everything that counts, my friend.
Please read it on my lips, my friend.
You're just right the way you are.

So come and dance with me.
Everyone once and a while. x 5
But don't fall.
Darling, dance with me.
Every once and a while. x 5
But don't fall.

La di da da da dum. x 10

My dear friend,
Maybe you're right, maybe not.
I don't know.
I only know this, I feel like I've known you forever.
How about this?
I'll take you home and you'll save the last dance for me.

So come and dance with me.
Every once and a while. x5
