Hey I was just wondering if anyone was sitting here And if not, would it be okay if someone bought you a beer? Let's say that someone wanted to dance Would he have any snowball in hell of a chance To get you out on the floor before this slow song ends? Oh hey, I'm just asking for a friend
He ain't ever been any good at laying it all out on the line I swear down deep, believe me girl, he's a really good guy If you can find it in your heart just to cut him some slack He'll be Johnny-on-the-spot here in two seconds flat Yeah, he's holding his breath, come on give him a second with you
Oh hey Yeah what do you say? It's Friday night and you're beautiful, so beautiful What man wouldn't think you were the love of his life? He'd be a fool, he'd be a fool Just one drink would sure mean a lot to him Yeah, I'm just asking for a friend
Let's say this friend of mine went and messed up real bad And he'd do anything in this world, girl, to get you back Hey what kind of sorry would it take for a man to erase his worst mistake And would this even begin to make a dent?
Oh hey What do you say? It's Friday night and you're beautiful, so beautiful What man wouldn't think you were the love of his life? He'd be a fool, he'd be a fool I don't mean to ramble on like this Hey, I'm just asking for a friend
Yeah, what if I told you he hadn't slept in weeks? And he was standing right here in front of you instead of me Is there any way you could ever love him again? Just asking for a friend

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
