The Greatest Friend lyrics

The Greatest Friend

His name was Alex. He was my roommate
We had this funky bachelor pad, we picked up women, we were bad
We drove cross country, in his shit-ass Chevy
That thing broke down, around south bend
He was the greatest friend

His name was Franklin, my drinking buddy
Some nights we passed out on the floor, then we’d wake up and drink some more
We got arrested, for jogging naked
I thought the fun would never end
He was the greatest friend

Oh we swore we would always live close by
No matter our lives, our wives or our careers
Oh we formed a bond that would never die
I haven’t heard from him in years

So life gets funny, and time to end things
This bond I thought would always last, it’s now a footnote in my past

His name was Alex, His name was Franklin
As you grow old, you can’t pretend
It’s hard to make, a friend
