Keep an eye
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
On your close friend, yeah

Keep an eye
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
On your close friend

'Cause what you got
They'll make you lose
And then turn around
And step in your shoes
I say they'll turn around
And step in your shoes

I stood there numb
Watchin' my friend walk away
With my love on her arm
She said was
"Sorry for what I had to do
But you see I love him
Just as much as you"

Keep an eye
Keep an eye
On your close friend, yeah

Keep an eye
Keep an eye
You better watch out
For your close friend

The devil workshop
Is a busy place
On top of evil
There's an innocent face
On top of evil
He puts an innocent face
She was just like a spider
Only twice as smart

Kindness was a thread
She used to weave my world apart
There were three of us
Seen all over town
And now there's only two
Someone's missing
Guess who?

Now I see how she schemed
And worked her way in between
Planted seeds of mistrust
To make us fight unaware

Her comfortin' ways, when I would cry
Shadowed the look of triumph in her eye
Just like a snake on the limb of tree
A friend is an enemy you can see

Yeah, 'cause what you got
They'll make you lose
And then turn around
And step in your shoes
I say they'll turn around
And step in your shoes

So you better keep an eye
On your close friend
You better watch out
For your close friend

Don't trust nobody
Don't trust nobody

Keep an eye
On your close friend
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
Don't trust nobody

Keep an eye
On your close friend
You better watch out
For your close friend
She was just like a spider
Only twice as smart
