She was my girl that one time
And in her eyes there was a light
That brightened my days and warmed my nights
Until he charmed her weak smile

He was a friend of mine
A friend of mine, a friend of mine
He was a friend of mine
A friend of mine, a friend of mine

He struck my heart with a chord, yes
Way back in August of 94
He suit my soul with his song
Until she finally let me know

She was a friend of mine
A friend of mine, a friend of mine
She was a friend of mine
A friend of mine, a friend of mine

I wanna know, why did you do it?
Oh, tell me, why did you do it?
Oh, a sort of friendship, why did you do it?
I wanna know, why did you do it?

I wanna know, I wanna know
Why did you do it?
Oh, I wanna know, why did you do it?
I wanna know, why did you do it?
Tell me why, why did you do it?
