Where are all my friends.
Oh Lord, oh Lord.

Used to have lots of fancy clothes
And drive a big white Cadillac.
Not knowing all the time I had these things,
My friends were stabbing me straight in my back.
No, no, no.
Even had a house then out there in Beverly Hills.
I was moving so fast, y'all,
I didn't even have time to worry about paying my bills.

Something started changing,
My life started rearranging.
Now I'm all alone.
All the friends I wanted,
I-I-I don't have anymore.
So somebody tell, tell me

Where are all my friends.
I can't find nobody.
Where are all my friends.
Oh Lord, oh Lord.

Used to take my friends out everywhere I went.
But I used to tell them, y'all,
Y'all ain't gotta spend a red cent,
'Cause I used to have lots of money.
I had them in big old stacks.
I used to lend them my clothes,
But they never, never ever, never, never brought them back.

Now I don't have nothing.
I'm so all alone.
Don't even have a home.
I ain't got no place to lay my head.
Wish someone would help me,
'Cause I-I-I-I-I-I-I...I need a loan.

(Where are all my friends.) Yeah, baby.
I'm looking, y'all.  I'm looking all over.
Where are all my friends.
I'm looking for the friends I used to call my very own.
Where are all my friends.
I need somebody right now.  Hey.
Where are all my friends.
I don't have a father or a mother.
Where are all my friends.

I remember the time I used to walk up and down the streets.
And I remember you and you and you and you and you.
I remember when you used to say that, yeah,
Trying to get me to spare a dime.
And I used to come out the bottom of my heart, 'cause I thought you were a friend of mine.  Huh.
But it seems, yeah.
It seems that you didn't even give a damn about me, no.
But now I'm down and out and I need a friend.
I surely need a friend.
