Best Friends Forever

You need to be at an event and you have nothing to wear,
And guess who’ll lend you anything short of their underwear.
You’ve lost your job and can’t seem to get off unemployment,
And guess who’s leading the search for your next appointment.
Your latest relationship is over and boy were mistakes made,
And guess who’s getting you sober and dragging you out of bed.
The doctors say it’s hopeless and that nothing can be done,
And guess who’s rushing to the hospital faster than anyone.
When it comes to friends, you may have many or just a few.
But there’s no guesswork as to who’s really there for you.
Your bestfriend may talk a lot of smack about this and that.
But your bestfriend is also the one who always has your back.
So next time you're feeling down in your luck, take a moment to see,
Who's standing right there next to you and who's hiding up a tree.

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
