"I Need All the Friends I Can Get" as written by and Tracyanne Campbell....
I can see that you are leading her on
I think I know what you are
I can see that you are leading her on
I know what you are

You can't see that you're just the same as all the stupid people you hate
I'm not saying I'm free from blame because I need all the friends I can get

A long distance call to a mystery blond it wasn't good for business
But you say that she cries when she hears the bird's song
You want to soothe her distress

You can't see that she's just the same as all the stupid people you hate
I'm not saying I'm free from blame because I need all the friends I can get

Can't you see that you are leading her on
You say you're feeling listless
The people are tired and commitment has gone
To this I've been a witness

You can't see that I'm just the same as all the stupid people you hate
I'm not saying I'm free from blame because I need all the friends I can get

I need all the friends I can get
I need all the friends I can get
I need all the friends I can get

I need all the friends I can get
I need all the friends I can get
I need all the friends I can get

    General CommentThis song makes me terribly sad, since I know many people like the guy they're singing about in this song. Say most people they know are stupid. Place themselves above the others. But they still like attractive girls who are the same as everyone they consider stupid. I don't know, that's partly what i see in this song.

    General CommentYep, I see it as about a heartbreaker who likes to think he's not and that he's really a good guy. Great song.

    General CommentSo if you know you're that guy and you seem upset about it, why keep doing it? I mean, Come on. you should seriously just tone it down a bit if that's how you are. Know your mistakes. That's all I have to say. Love you all =] Peace, love, robots.

    My InterpretationMaybe it is more about friendship/relations in general since she sings "I need all the friends i can get".
    Also she puts both him, the mystery blonde and herself in the role of being just the same.
    Same wirth the "The people are tired and commitment has gone. To this I've been a witness" Lines.

    For me this is more a complaint about freindships/relations losing value.
    And the pure frustration about it is emphasised with the fact that even though she hates this, she still needs all the friends she can get since she tries to use quantity where quality is missing.
