"You're My Mate" as written by Fred Fairbrass, Richard Peter John Fairbrass and Myke Gray....
I'll tell you what I think, I think she's a cow,
She's let you down too many times now.
Let's got for a drink, forget it from now,
Put it behind you, I think it's your round.

[Chorus]
Cause you're my mate and I will stand by you,
You're my mate and I will stand by you.
And in the face of things that could hurt you,
You're my mate and I will stand by you.
Cause you're my mate and I will stand by you,
You're my mate and I will stand by you.
And in the face of things that could hurt you,
You're my mate and I will stand by you, coz you're my mate.

I'll tell you what I think, I think he's a pain,
He ain't got a car, but he drives you insane.
Let's got for a drink and think of you,
Enough about him, let's talk about you.

[Chorus]

All I want to do is get drunk here with you,
All I want to do is get drunk here with you.
All I want to do is get drunk here with you,
All I want to do is get drunk here with you.

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think this is a great song, I like to listen to it and sometimes I just say to my best friend Tricia some of the lines out of it like: Cos you're my mate and i will stand by you.

    General CommentI think this song tells a touching story that exemplifies the duality and venality of man. He starts off talking to a guy, ostensibly his 'mate', but he doesn't want to talk about his mate's failed relationship, he just wants a free drink.

    Then later on in the song he is talking to a woman, who seems to be the girlfriend (ex) of the guy he was talking with earlier. He doesn't want to talk about her problems either, but he wants to take advantage of her situation, at the same time betraying his first 'mate'.

    The whole 'stand by you' thing is sung in an ironic way, perhaps showing the bitterness of past wrongs that have been done to the singer.

    Very deep and meaningful (!)

    General CommentHang on does that mean RSF aren't gay? Personally I think maybe he's having a cheeky poke(NPI) at trying to 'convert' straight guys in the first verse... the 2nd he cjust ouldn't be bothered to change the lyrics much and made it deliberately ambigous... either way, respect... the ultimate Eurotrash band!
