Why Can't We Be Friends
Smash Mouth Lyrics


Why can't we be friends (4x)

I seen ya I seen ya I seen ya 'round for a long long time

I really I really I really remember when you drank my wine



Why can't we be friends (4x)


I seen ya I seen ya I seen ya walkin' down in Chinatown

I called ya I called ya I called but you did not look around

I pay my I pay my I pay my money to the welfare line

I seen ya I seen ya I seen ya standing in it everytime



Why can't we be friends (4x)



The color the color the color of your skin don't matter to me

As long as as long as long as we can live in harmony

I kinda I kinda I kinda like to be the president

And I could and I could and I could show you how your money's spent



Why can't we be friends (4x)



Sometimes I don't speak right

But did I know what I was talking about

I know you're working for the CIA

They wouldn't have you in the mafia



Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Why can't we be friends (4x)

Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?

Te he visto, te he visto, te he visto por aquí por un largo largo tiempo,
Realmente, realmente, recuerdo cuando te bebiste mi vino

Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?


Yo te vi, te vi, te vi dando vueltas por el barrio chino
Yo te llamé, te llamé, te llamé pero no volteaste a mirar
Pagué mi, pague mi, pagué mi dinero en la línea del subsidio
Te veo, te veo, te veo reclamándola todo el tiempo


Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?


El color, el color, el color de tu piel no es importante para mi
Mientras, mientras, mientras podamos vivir en
armonía
Quisiera, quisiera, quisiera ser el presidente
Podría, podría, podría mostrarles como me gaste su plata

Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?

A veces yo no hablo al derecho
Pero si que sabía de lo que estaba hablando
Yo se que estás trabajando para la C. I. A.
Ellos no te tendrían en la MAF.I.A.

Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?
Por qué no podemos ser amigos?

I will never forget the first time I listened to this song. It was the night after 9/11. The radio host holding back tears just said. "F... Damn, I guess I should play something solemn , but I cant think of a damn thing right now" and he played this.
That moment this hit harder than any song I have ever heard.

It’s confirmed, Steve Harwell from the famous band Smash Mouth has stopped racism all by himself, what a true hero.
