FRIENDS YOU USED TO KNOW

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  when you walked in the room,
                 dressed a little weird,
                 hostility appeared.

            II.  when you took off your mask,
                 some people turned and ran.
                 you were the Elephant Man.

      CHORUS A:  now where are the friends you used to know?
                 what good are the friends you used to know?

           III.  and when upon the stage
                 you played a diff'rent drum,
                 applause did not come.

            IV.  in a yellow world,
                 you sang a purple song.
                 nobody sang along.

                 /// REPEAT CHORUS A ///

             V.  today you're hard to find,
                 you look so commonplace
                 in your designer face.

            VI.  you're always with your friends,
                 repeating empty words
                 like vulgar myna birds.

                 /// REPEAT CHORUS A ///

      CHORUS B:  now are these the friends you used to know?
                 if these were my friends, I'd let them go.
