ANOTHER…OLD GIRL FRIEND????

ANOTHER…OLD GIRL FRIEND????

(To: “The Holy City”)

 

Last night I was a-thinking

About my friend, Patrice…

She was a friend in college

I’ve thought about the least,

She was a friend in college

I’ve thought about the least!

My friend Patrice,

My friend Patrice:

How could you hurt me so?

I was…attracted to you, my friend…

But you accused me so low!

I always found you a pleasure…

How could you treat me so low!

When I got your letter

Accusing me of faults…

I couldn’t finish my work that night

And had to call a halt,

I couldn’t finish my work that night

And had to call a halt!

Patrice my friend,

Patrice my friend…

Why accuse me so?

There’s nothing wrong with attraction,

Why did you cast me low?

There’s nothing wrong with attraction,

Why would you me down-throw?

You were a closer friend to me,

Your eyes were straightened out…

If I was shallow for wanting you

I surely was a lout,

If I was shallow wanting you

I surely was a lout!

Patrice my friend,

Patrice my friend…

Why did you hurt me so?

Will others be held to the same account

That you questioned me so low?

Will others be held to the same account

That you questioned of me so low?
