Don't mind people grinnin' in your face
Don't mind people grinnin' in your face
You just bear this in mind, a true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face

You know your mother would talk about you
Your own sisters and your brothers too
They don't care how you're tryin' to live
They'll talk about you still
Yes, but bear, ooh, this in mind, a true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face

Don't mind people grinnin' in your face
Don't mind people grinnin' in your face
Oh, just bear, ooh this in mind, a true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face

You know they'll jump you up and down
They'll carry you all 'round and 'round
Just as soon as your back is turned
They'll be tryin' to crush you down
Yes, but bear this in mind, a true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face

Don't mind people grinnin' in your face
Don't mind people grinnin' in your face, oh, Lord
And just bear this in mind, a true friend is hard to find
Don't you mind people grinnin' in your face
