Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

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?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I seen ya, I seen ya, I seen ya walkin' down to Chinatown
I called ya, I called ya, I called ya but you did not look around, yeah, yeah
I paid my, I paid my, I paid my money to the welfare line
I seen ya, I seen ya, I seen ya standing in it every time

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

The color, the color, the color of your skin don't matter to me
As long as, as long as, as long as we can live in harmony, yeah, yeah
I kinda, I kinda, I kinda like to be the president
Then I could, then I could, then I could show you how your money's spent

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

Sometimes I don't speak right
But did I know what I was talking about?
I know you're workin' for the C.I.A.
They wouldn't have you in the mafia

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
