"With Friends Like You Who Needs Friends?" as written by Sean Thomas, Darren Cordeux, Joel Vanderuit and Karl Ammitzboll....
Hey, there green eyes, you are just in time, you're under my knife
I will clean you up and show you then to all of my friends
And we will walk around town hand in hand to show them you're mine
And I will write you some rock and roll song that goes something like this

Oh, oh, oh, hey, green eyes
Oh, oh, oh, just in time
Oh, oh, oh, I am all that you need

Hey, there brown hair, you will compliment my image this week
And we will get along fine just as long as you never speak
And I'll try not to break your heart darling if you keep smiling
I'll just keep you on the shelf, yeah

Oh, oh, oh, hey, green eyes
Oh, oh, oh, just in time
Oh, oh, oh, I am all that you need
Ooh

Oh, oh, oh, hey, green eyes
Oh, oh, oh, just in time
Oh, oh, oh, I am all that you need

Oh, oh, oh, hey, green eyes
Oh, oh, oh, just in time
Oh, oh, oh, I am all that you need

I am all that you need
I am all that you need, ooh

    General CommentThis is a very superficial song to me.Kinda like someone has just gotten a partner and dressed them up,made them look good and now just wants to show them off.
    But the way it's written,I dunno if Darren meant it this way or what,but it's sounds like what a girl would think cause it's so....bitchy.

    General CommentIt seems as if these girls are being made over and changed to compliment his image. U no where u go out wif a guy or chick jst coz he/she iz hot? Itz more show and flaunting to friends saying hey look hu im with. No true emotions attached.

    General CommentI think the verses of this song are a tongue in cheek way of saying how darren can hook up with chicks just cause he's in a band, hence the superficial feel to the lyrics. The chorus' i think relate to one girl, prob his gf, the girl he has feelings for, because they seem more sincere, and she saved him from all the temptations, thus 'just in time'.

    General Commenti think the chorus is still in theme with the verse. "just in time" could refer to the girls being lucky enough to spend time with him. the "i am all that you need" says to me that these girls 'crave' him.

    General Commentits like a trophey partner simply there to make the other person look good...this could be a reference to the fact many singers marry a trophey partner

    General CommentMaybe I just have a twisted mind but first time I read these lyrics I thought they were totally creepy. I interpreted them in like Jeffrey Dahmer style...getting the girls and then LITERALLY putting them on his shelf...or at least part of them.

    No?
