Just a Friend lyrics by Biz Markie

Have you ever met a girl that you tried to date
But a year to make love she wanted you to wait
Let me tell ya a story of my situation
I was talkin to this girl from the US nation
The way that I met her was on tour at a concert
She had long hair and a short miniskirt
I just got onstage drippin pourin with sweat
I was walkin through the crowd and guess who I met
I whispered in her ear, “Come to the picture booth
So I can ask you some questions
To see if you are a hundred proof”
I asked her her name, she said blah-blah-blah
She had 9/10 pants and a very big bra
I took a couple of flicks and she was enthused
I said, “How do you like the show?”
She said, “I was very amused”
I started throwin bass
She started throwin’ back mid-range
But when I sprung the question
She acted kind of strange
Then when I asked, “Do ya have a man”
She tried to pretend
She said, “No I don’t, I only have a friend”

Come on, I’m not even goin for it
This is what I’m gonna sing

You, you got what I need
But you say he’s just a friend
And you say he’s just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need
But you say he’s just a friend
But you say he’s just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need
But you say he’s just a friend
But you say he’s just a friend

So I took blah-blah’s word for it at this time
I thought just havin a friend couldn’t be no crime
Cos I have friends and that’s a fact
Like Agnes, Agatha, Germaine, and Jacq
Forget about that, let’s go into the story
About a girl named blah-blah-blah that adored me
So we started talkin, getttin familiar
Spendin a lot of time so we can build up
A relationship or some undderstanding
How it’s gonna be in the future we was plannin
Everything sounded so dandy and sweet
I had no idea I was in for a treat
After this was established, everything was cool
The tour was over and she went back to school
I called every day to see how she was doin
Everytime that I called her it seemed somethin was brewin
I called her on my dime, picked up, and then I called again
I said, “Yo, who was that?”
“Oh, he’s just a friend”

Don’t gimme that, don’t even gimme that
Jus’ bust this

You, you got what I need
But you say he’s just a friend
And you say he’s just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need
But you say he’s just a friend
But you say he’s just a friend, oh baby
You, you got what I need
But you say he’s just a friend
But you say he’s just a friend

So I came to her college on a surprise visit
To see my girl that was so exquisite
It was a school day, I knew she was there
The first semester of the school year
I went to a gate to ask where was her dorm
This guy made me fill out a visitor’s form
He told me where it was and I was on my way
To see my baby doll, I was happy to say
I arrrived in front of the dormitory
Yo, could you tell me where is door three?
They showed me where it was for the moment
I didn’t know I was in for such an event
So I came to her room and opened the door
Oh, snap! Guess what I saw?
A fella tongue-kissin my girl in the mouth
I was so in shock my heart went down south
So please listen to the message that I say
Don’t ever talk to a girl
Who says she just has a friend
