  • Hey

    I met him at the bookstore
    He said he'd like to get to know me just a little more
    Asked me to dinner
    I said I'd bring my girlfriend
    He said that's cool 'cause he was gonna bring his best friend
    But something happened that I wasn't expecting
    His best friend all night had my attention

    Knew it was wrong
    I couldn't help it
    And I don't care
    I'm being selfish
    Know what I want and I want your best friend
    Ain't gonna front, uhh-uhh, I want your best friend
    Hey boy, I think I like your best friend
    Would you mind if I dined with your best friend?
    Switch!

    And you can take my girlfriend
    I hardly know ya, so there is no attachments
    You take my chair, I'll sit right there
    Let's see how that feels
    And don't be mean and make a scene
    It ain't a big deal
    'Cause something happened that I wasn't expecting
    His best friend all night had my attention

    Knew it was wrong
    But I couldn't help it
    And I don't care
    I'm being selfish
    Know what I want and I want your best friend
    Ain't gonna front, uhh-uhh, I want your best friend
    Hey boy, I think I like your best friend
    Would you mind if I dined with your best friend?
    Switch!

    You see baby
    It really ain't a big deal (switch!)
    I mean, you a nice guy and all, but (switch!)
    If I met him, when I met you (switch!)
    He probably would've got the phone call

    Don't make no sense to leave with the wrong guy
    If your best friend could be the love of my life

    Knew it was wrong
    But I couldn't help it
    And I don't care
    I'm being selfish
    Know what I want and I want your best friend
    Ain't gonna front, uhh-uhh, I want your best friend
    Hey boy, I think I like your best friend
    Would you mind if I dined with your best friend?

    Something happened unexpected
    She didn't think that this would happen
    She liked this guy, had a connection
    It's just with her date's best friend
    Ha, ha, ha, ha
    Who would've guessed this?
    That she should just, the thing should just
    Switch, switch, switch, switch
    Hey boy, I think I like your best friend
    Would you mind if I dined with your best friend?
