My Friend John
The Fratellis Lyrics


Well the room was pink and the signs were serious
Paperback dolls being slammed delirious
Feeling like a joke in the bar underneath
And it was Saturday night in the year of the good thief

Well I tumbled up the stairs the wrong way round
I hit my head on the ceiling when my feet hit the ground
And then the big dumb blond in the gold fish bowl
Cried Ella's in the band but she's got no soul!
[Chorus: ]
My friend John was a serious one
Buttoned up the back and a job half done
Lazy old boy when the good girls turn
His teeth get itchy and his rubber souls burn
When will he ever learn?

Well the night was spent and my money was young
And then I had to get home before my neck was wrung
And everybody danced in the same old way
And if I'm feeling old and desperate, I'll be back some day

[Chorus: ]

"If you were a shape," "Yes," "What shape would you be?" LOL

Dylan Greene

I knew a bloke from Stoke who sounded exactly like the guy at the start. So with some authority I can confirm the intro is: If you were a shape, what shape would you be?

Ax Boi

Eh
