"Friends Of Mine" as written by and C. White....
When we're all in a crowd
And you catch her eye
And then you both smile
I feel so good inside
And when I'm with her
She talks about you
The things that you say
The things that you do

It feels so good to know two people
So in love
So in love

They are friends of mine
(Joyce and Terry)
They are friends of mine
(Paul and Molly)
And they've got something
(Liz and Brian)
It's so hard to find
(Joy and David)
They are friends of mine
(Kim and Maggie)
They are friends of mine
(June and Daffy)
And they've got something
(Jean and Jim)
You don't often find
(And Jim and Christine)

She takes your hand
When the world stays outside
That's something to see
That's nothing to hide

And when I feel bad
When people disappoint me
That's when I need you two
To help me believe

It feels so good to know two people
So in love
So in love

They are friends of mine
(Joyce and Terry)
They are friends of mine
(Paul and Molly)
And they've got something
(Liz and Brian)
It's so hard to find
(Joy and David)
They are friends of mine
(Kim and Maggie)
They are friends of mine
(June and Daffy)
And they've got something
(Jean and Jim)
You don't often find
(And Jim and Christine)

It feels so good to know two people
So in love
So in love

They are friends of mine
(Joyce and Terry)
They are friends of mine
(Paul and Molly)
And they've got something
(Liz and Brian)
It's so hard to find
(Joy and David)
They are friends of mine
(Kim and Maggie)
They are friends of mine
(June and Daffy)
And they've got something
(Jean and Jim)
You don't often find
(And Jim and Christine)

Joyce and Terry
Paul and Molly
Liz and Brian
Joy and David
Kim and Maggie
June and Daffy
Jean and Jim
And Jim and Christine

    General CommentOf Montreal did a cover of this song, the Zombies version is the original. Anyone who likes early Of Montreal or other Elephant 6 stuff should check out the album Odessey And Oracle.

    This song actually comes off as just a little bit bittersweet to me, despite how cheery it sounds. The guy sounds genuinely happy for his friends, but it's implied he doesn't have that kind of close relationship with anyone himself. And as a bit of irony, I've read that all the people named in the chorus were actual couples the band knew, but almost all of them broke up by the time the album was out.

    General CommentFriends of Mine is clearly a song about a man experiencing jealousy of his fellow friends and peers. The bitter, almost sardonic tone of the song at "feels so good to know two people so in love" is the clear give away. This is even further confirmed by the sarcastic "ahh" at the end of the song. It's pretty evident with this cadence that the general point is, "oh great a bunch of people dating except for me.. feels so good to know... ah.. yeah fuck my life.
