"A Friend Like You" as written by and Riley Gordon Briggs....
I love everyone
Everybody underneath the sun
I think you're all the most amazing fun

When I'm very high, I can't help but wonder why
You gotta be such a butterfly
Oh well, I don't mind when you land on me
I just wish you'd stop fluttering your butter
Or what may seem

Back when you were young
You ran around with every mother's son
I can't believe half of the things you've done

I know cause I'm the same
I threw a lot of what I was away
And I'm all confused today
And I'll take anything you hand to me,
If I don't know any better than you I will agree

With a friend like you, baby, what would I do?
I think about it all of the time
Till we stick like glue, when it's easy to do
Or do I wait until you've made up your mind?
Can I wait until you've made up your mind?

Girl one thing I know
Until the day that you let me go
I'm gonna let my loving flow
Like wine and water out of Jesus' jug
And all that rubbish that you talk on drugs

With a friend like you, baby, what would I do?
I think about it all of the time
Till we stick like glue, when it's easy to do
Or do I wait until you've made up your mind?

With a friend like me, girl, it's easy to see
Things'll go wrong all the time
But if little by little, we could meet in the middle
I'll be yours, and baby you will be mine
And now I'll wait until you've made up your mind

    General CommentThis song is about friends who are the social butterfly type. You might consider them good friends, or close to you, but you don't get to spend much time together because they are too busy networking all the time or being the social butterfly type that has to talk to everyone at the party. They flutter around the party you brought them too even though you wish they would just land on you. Relationships like this are rough because the social butterfly makes you feel like you are a friend at their convenience, when they have time

    (Do we stick like glue, when it's easy to do)

    The singer is bothered by the butterfly, but made sacrifices because she believed that they were close friends

    (I threw a lot of what I was away
    And I'm all confused today
    And I'll take anything you hand to me,
    If I don't know better than you I will agree...),

    but in fact her friend is only her friend when it's convenient

    (With a friend like you, baby, what would I do?
    I think about it all of the time
    Do we stick like glue, when it's easy to do
    Or do I wait until you've made up your mind?
    Can I wait until you've made up your mind?)

    and as a result she's upset and wants her to make up her mind and decides in the end that she will wait for her to make up her mind whether or not she really wants to be her friend or not.

    (I will be yours, and baby you will be mine
    And now I'll wait until you've made up your mind...)
