How Many Friends Lyrics - The Who



Review The Song (1)


I'm feelin' so good right now
There's a handsome boy tells me how I changed his past
He buys me a brandy
Or could it be he's really just after my ass?

He likes the clothes I wear
He says he likes a man who's dressed in season
But no one else ever stared, he's being so kind
What's the reason?

How many friends have I really got?
You can count them on one hand.
How many friends have I really got?
How many friends have I really got?
That love me, that want me, that'll take me as I am?

Suddenly it's a silver screen
And a face so beautiful
that I have to cry out
Everybody hears me
But I look like a fool now
With a cry and I shy out
She knows all my friends
But it's nice to find a woman who can stay home late
Now I think I've reached the end
I wonder in the dead of night
how do I rate?

How many friends have I really got?
How many friends have I really got?
How many friends have I really got?
That love me, that want me, that'll take me as I am?

BRIDGE
It's all like a dream you know
When you're still up early in the morning
And you all sit together to watch the sun come through
But things don't look so good
When you could use a bit of warning
Then you know that no one will ever speak the truth about you

How many friends have I really got?
How many friends have I really got?
How many friends have I really got?
That love me, that want me, that'll take me as I am?

When I first signed a contract
It was more than a handshake then
I know it still is
But there's a plain fact
We talk so much shit behind each other's backs
I get the willies
People know nothing
'bout their soft own rubber soul
how come they can sum us up
Without suffering
all the hurt we've known
How come they bum us up

How many friends have I really got?
Well, you can count 'em on the one hand
How many friends have I really got?
How many friends have I really got?
That love me, that want me, that'll take me as I am?

Pete and Keith's Emotions | Reviewer: Erin | 1/29/13

When Pete first wrote "How Many Friends" for "The Who By Numbers" he presented it to Keith Moon and Keith, hearing it for the first time broke down and sobbed. Many critics considered "The Who By Number's" as "Pete's suicide note" although, we all know that wasn't the case.
