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.
