​Some Of My Best Friends

This song is by Brook Benton and appears on the compilation album The Early Years 1953-1959 (2014).

Some of my best friends are very nice
Often they come to me and offer free advice
They say the merry-go-round you ride on travels too fast
They worried about my future, they tell me about your past
Some of my best friends don't seem to know

Our love will live though years may come and go
They say you'll play a game and break all the rules
They say that you'll light a flame that suddenly cools
They're intelligent people from the finest of schools
But some of my best friends are fools

Some of my best friends are not so smart
How can their eyes begin to read what's in your heart
They say you'll play a game and break all the rules
They say that you'll light a flame that suddenly cools
They're intelligent people from the finest of schools
But some of my best friends are nothing but fools
