Can't We Be Friends?

by Frank Sinatra

Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra, /sɨˈnɑːtrə/, (December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998) was an American singer and film actor of Italian origin.




I took each word she said as gospel truth 
The way a silly little child would
I can't excuse it on the grounds of youth 
I was no babe in the wild, wild wood
She didn't mean it
I should have seen it
But now it's too late

I thought I'd found the girl of my dreams
Now it seems 
This is how the story ends
She's gonna turn me down and say 
"Can't we be friends?"
I thought for once it couldn't go wrong
Not for long
I can see the way this ends
She's gonna turn me down and say 
"Can't we be friends?"
Why should I care though she gave me the air
Why should I cry
Heave a sigh
And wonder why
And wonder why

I thought I found the gal I could trust 
What a bust, this is how the story ends
She's gonna turn me down and say
"Can't we be just friends?"
