That's What Friends Are For

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

Think I look a little green
I never felt this way before
I think somebody spiked my drink
That's what friends are for

Baby will you stick by me baby
Everything's gone a little hazy
Baby if I just lay out on the floor
You go ahead and enjoy yourself
That's what friends are for

The air is really thick in here
You can cut it with a knife
Expect that's why that friend of yours
Is giving you the kiss of life
I don't think he knows much about it
'Cos I used to it when I was young
And I don't remember ever sticking out my tongue
But I'm sure he knows much more
Well that's what friends are for

The temperature is rising
And you know it really shows
Do you think the host and hostess
Mind you taking off all of your clothes
I don't think that he's got much rhythm
Though I can't see him dancing with them
I can feel the vibrations through the floor
So he's a qualified masseur
Well that's what friends are for
