Waiting on a Friend

Watching girls go passing by,

It ain't the latest thing,

I'm just standing in a doorway,

I'm just trying to make some sense,

Out of these girls go passing by,

The tales they tell of men,

I'm not waiting on a lady,

I'm just waiting on a friend,

A smile relieves a heart that grieves,

Remember what I said,

I'm not waiting on a lady,

I'm just waiting on a friend,

I'm just waiting on a friend,

Don't need a whore,

I don't need no booze,

Don't need a virgin priest,

But I need someone I can cry to,

I need someone to protect,

Making love and breaking hearts,

It is a game for youth,

But I'm not waiting on a lady,

I'm just waiting on a friend.
