I bet there's a boyfriend now
Yeah, I bet there's a boyfriend now
Was I just a sub while you were huntin' for love
Well, I bet there's a boyfriend now


Lyrics:

Betya ©1997 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

You and me - we been friends a while
Shopping around for what's not in style
Pray for chocolate diets and have some laughs
About the guys we know who got no class
Now I don't see you or share in your schemes
(Chorus)
I bet there's a boyfriend now
Yeah, I bet there's a boyfriend now
Was I just a sub while you were huntin' for love
Well, I bet there's a boyfriend now

(Chorus Part2)
Just throw friendship in the gutter
You'd probably drop you mother
I bet there's a boyfriend now

We'd talk about our ideas and plans
If you tap danced as a lobster, I'm your biggest fan
When one of us was down, the other'd pull her up
What you gonna do now that door is shut
Thought friendship was forever - now with you I know better

You and me ...

(Bridge)
Well I was cruising for junk food just the other day
When you spotted me on the corner you began to smile and wave
Just like some cheshire cat. you were grinning ear to ear
Imagine your surprise when it was me who disappeared
Well, I bet there's no boyfriend now
WelI, I bet there's no boyfriend now
But I won't fill your empty time
Cause you've really been a slime
Yeah, I bet there's no boyfriend now TFB
