  • [Chorus]
    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 around for a long long time
    I really remember you when you drank my wine

    [Chorus]

    I'd seen ya walking down in Chinatown
    I called ya but you could not look around

    [Chorus]

    I pay my money to the welfare line
    I see ya standing in it every time

    [Chorus]

    The color of your skin don't matter to me
    As long as we can live in harmony

    [Chorus]

    I'd kinda' like to be the president
    So I could show you how your money's spent

    [Chorus]

    Sometimes I don't speak right
    But yet I know what I'm talking about

    [Chorus]

    I know you're working for the CIA
    They wouldn't have you in the mafia

    [Chorus: x4]
