Lyrics

To me, coming from you,
Friend is a four letter word
End is the only part of the word,
That I heard.
Call me morbid or absurd,
But to me,
Coming from you,
Friend is a four letter word

To me,
Coming from you,
Friend is a four letter word
End is the only part of the word
That I heard,
Call me morbid or absurd,
But to me,
Coming from you,
Friend is a four letter word

When I go fishing for the words,
I am wishing you would say to me,
I am really only praying that
The words you'll soon be saying
Might betray the way you feel about me.

But to me,
Coming from you,
Friend is a four letter word.

    Suppose you've been dating a girl, she says she wants to be "just friends." To the writer this means the end at whatever depth. Also, the writer dislikes the idea to the point where to him friend is a curse word alike many other monosyllabic words with 4 letters in the english language.

    Recently i was listening to cake and i had a thought thatr maybe the four letter word is life and he only hears end, as in friends for life, untill they die....thats why he says its morbid....

    I've always just thought it meant a curse in general. Since you know, four letter words are bad. I thought it was just an implied thing, and there wasn't actually a word.

    When I first heard this song I was trying to make 4 letter words out of friend. I managed to find a fitting word: fiend. Unfortunately it's obviously 5 letters, so it's not what McCrea was thinking. Now I'm inclined to think it was hate or some such word.

    I love this song! I heard it for the first time in my Uncle's car last night and I new I had to get the cd.
    Oh, and about the dedication... it's probably not a good thing. I know the person I've dedicated this song to would kill me if they ever found out.
