#RhythmandBluesVariety Hour: True Friends Stab You in the Front

From the collection The Unsungs

The Unsungs are the items that didn’t fit my stands to make a collection or incomplete items, or just simple poems.

True Friends Stab You in the Front- Written 12/14/10

And I know where my real friends stand

As they face me with the knife in their hand

And they tell me that I am always wrong

They tell me why they have to bring me down

Instead of doing like others and giving me the run around

Then I tell them that I love you all

 

Because they’re the only ones I can trust

To stab with me with a metal blade covered in rust

Because we all know

True friends stab you in the front

 

I won’t take no backstabbers talking to me

Waiting to stab me with so much malice and glee

My friends are honest and in return so am I

And when we hurt someone we look them in the eye

And say that this is going to hurt so much more

Than the worst pain you ever felt before

But I’d rather have you than somebody else

Stabbing me wholeheartedly in my chest

 

Because they’re the only ones I can trust

To stab me with a metal blade covered in rust

And we all know

True friends stab you in the front
