"Friend of Mine" as written by Lily Rose Beatrice Allen, Iyiola Babatunde Babalola, Darren Emilio Lewis, O'kelly Jr. Isley, Ernie Isley, Marvin Isley, Ronald Isley, Rudolph Bernard Isley and Christopher Howard Jasper....
I don't want us to have a fight
But in the background
I can hear you chatting shite
I hear it every night
And you think you're being really cool
And you've been doing it
Since we were both at school
Now who looks like a fool

You're no friend of mine, girl
And I've known it for a while, girl
You're just a waste of time, girl
Why don't you have another line, girl?

Tell me what did you expect
Have you got no self respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you'll be a nervous wreck
Tell me what did you expect
Have you got no self respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you'll be a nervous wreck

What happened to the good old days?
I was kinda hoping this was all a stupid phase
Who are you anyway?

I know you've heard this all before
I know some people who are calling you a whore
Don't know you anymore

You're no friend of mine, girl
And I've known it for a while, girl
You're just a waste of time, girl
Why don't you have another line, girl?

Tell me what did you expect
Have you got no self respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you'll be a nervous wreck
Tell me what did you expect
Have you got no self respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you'll be a nervous wreck

Tell me what did you expect
Have you got no self respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you'll be a nervous wreck
Tell me what did you expect
Have you got no self respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you'll be a nervous wreck

    General CommentDefinitely about a friend who has given up her whole life for coke and is now a total loser. I totally LOVE this song. It may be my favorite. The tune and lyrics are just so simpy elegant and it's relatable.

    General Commenti thought that just meant "dont you have another way of getting attention?" like when someone overuses a pickup line or whatever. and at the start she says "chattin shite" as in, bithcing about me, spreading rumours and that.

    General Commenti thought it was a reference to cocaine as well. like, mocking her for being a drug addict on top of all this other shit. i don't think it really had anything to do with their relationship, which is why it's only one line in the song.
