I haven't been loved by a man in quite a while
You know it ain't easy making me smile
Friends have their lovers, men on a string
There must be something terribly wrong with me

Sometimes I feel like I haven't learned anything
How do you do? Would you like to be friends?
No, I just want a bed for the night
Someone to tell me they care

You can fake it, that's all right
In the morning I won't be here
It's a sacrificial alter and I'm laying down my head
And I'm telling you upfront I haven't much to give
Is that how it's done or shall I sing and dance?
Give me a chance

How do you do? Do you want to be friends?
Yes, that might be very nice, maybe we'll fall in love
Everybody has it's price
Mine is yours for free if you'll be in love with me

I haven't been loved by a man in quite a while
You know it ain't easy making me smile
All my friends have their lovers, they've got men on a string
There must be something terribly wrong with me

How do you do? Would you like to be friends?
