  • I've known him all my life
    It seems so inconceivable
    At thirteen we shooks hands but we've been always inseparable
    He's cinnamon on my toast, we're so close

    That's not to say we haven't had our share of arguments
    He's so unpredictable he winks acknowledgments
    When I would rather he closed his eye
    Than push me aside

    My hands a five leaf clover
    It's psalm Sunday over and over
    I never had the luck of swingers
    Til' I was wrapped around your finger

    He's my best friend
    He's my best friend
    He's my best friend
    I'm his best friend
    He's my best friend

    You don't need a brain to have a stroke of genius
    Or a beautiful girl to let down your curls
    Cause growing up is hard enough
    When your a powder keg for powder puffs (whether we're stayin' in or hanging out)
    I'd never ask another on a date to the ball
    He doesn't need a rubber sweater or alcohol
    Cause he gets tipsy from exchanging looks
    And a little misty reading sticky (blue dirty books)

    But he's my best friend
    He's my best friend
    I'm his best friend
    He's my best friend

    My hand's a five leaf clover
    It's psalm Sunday over and over
    I never had the luck of swingers
    Til' I was wrapped around your finger

    He's my best friend (we could hold hands for hours)
    He's my best friend (in the bedroom or shower)
    He's my best friend (I pick him up when he's feelin' down)
    He's my best friend (I guess he's always been hangin' around)
    He's my best friend (he gets lonely now and then)
    He's my best friend (and he gets shy around another men)
    I'm his best friend (it seems I've reached the end of my best friend) Writer/s: ANDY STURMER, ROGER MANNING
