The Whodini Philosophy -one you should follow


*Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Ones we can depend on
Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Before we go any further, lets be Friends*

Is a word we use everyday
Most the time we use it in the wrong way
Now you can look the word up, again and again
But the dictionary doesnt know the meaning of friends

And if you ask me, you know, I couldnt be much help
Because A friend is somebody you judge for yourself
Some are ok, and they treat you real cool
But some mistake kindness for bein a fool

We like to be with some, because they're funny
Others come around when they need some money
Some you grew up with, around the way
And you're still real close too this very day

Homeboys through the Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall
And then there's some we wish we never knew at all
And this list goes on, again and again
But these are the people that we call friends

When we first went out together, we barely knew each other We had no intentions, on becoming lovers But in no time at all, you became my girl Me and you, one on one, against the world
Talkin on the telephone for hours at a time
Or else I was at your house, or you was at mine Then came the arguements and all kinds of problems Besides making love, we had nothing in common It couldnt last long because it started out strong But I guess we went about the whole thing wrong Cause out of nowhere it just came to an end Because we became lovers before we were friends
(YEEESSSSSS -this was b4 my time 1984, that's ma excuse for missin the message....haha)

*Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Ones we can depend on
Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Before we go any further, let's be
Friends*

You say you and your girlfriend were so tight
You took her out with you and your guy one night
She even had a set of keys to your home
And you shared mostly everything you owned

But as she shook your hand, she stole your man
And it was done so swift, it had to be a plan
Couldn't trust her with cheese, let alone your keys
With friends like that you dont need enemies

You wonder how long it was all going on
And your still not sure if your man is gone
You say, well if she took him he was never mine
But deep inside you know thats just another lie

And now you're kinda cold to the people you meet
Cause of something that was done to you by some creep
But nevertheless, I'll say it again
That these are the people that we call friends

*Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Before we go any further, lets be
Friends*

*Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
One's we can depend on
Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Before we go any further, lets be
Friends*

*Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
One's we can depend on
Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Before we go any further, lets be
Friends*

So my sista,

1- Beautiful I absolutely enjoyed reading this!

2- To the first portion--Man, the word friend is used so loosely by some but held close by others. I am slowly realizing that you (A) cannot call everyone your friend even if they call you there's (B) that some people enter your life and are your friend for a season. I have been going though a journey with that. It hurts so much to let people who you once thought had a forever long spot in your life go, but I have learned that it may hurt more to keep them there. God has his plan and I am just going to go along for the ride.

3-I agree with your sentiment. Its so hard to be friends once you have already crossed the line to "object of affection." Unfortunately, not too many are looking in the same order-- nor do they see the order as important (friend-- then lover)... Makes me think of the song Lovers and Friends by Usher and Lil' John... is that possible anymore?
