I keep gettin' all these visits from my friends, yeah, what they doin to me
They come to my house again and again and again and again, yeah

So are they there to see my woman
I don't even be home but they just keep on comin'
What can I do to get on the right track
I wish they'd take some of these knives off my back

All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
Low down... dirty...

(They smile in your face)
Smiling faces... smiling faces sometimes tell lies (Back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)

I don't need... low down, dirty bastards (Back stabbers)
