I've just been to see my best friend
He's got another girl 
Says she's just about the best thing 
In the whole damn world 

And he says can't you see what the little lady's done for me

Happy loving couples make it look so easy 
Happy loving couples always talk so kind 
Until the time that I can do my dancing with a partner 
Those happy couples ain't no friends of mine 

People say I'm too damn fussy

Be it in my own good time 
Being kind to myself till I become one of two of a kind 

Happy loving couples make it look so easy 
Happy loving couples always talk so kind 
Until the time that I can do my dancing with a partner 
Those happy couples ain't no friends of mine

Being kind to myself till I become one of two of a kind 

Happy loving couples make it look so easy 
Happy loving couples always talk so kind 
Until the time that I can do my dancing with a partner 
Those happy couples ain't no friends of mine

You ain't no friends of mine 
You ain't no friends of mine 
You ain't no friends of mine 
Right, that's enough
