Cheap Trick - Best Friend Lyrics

When the moon came up
And the sun went down
All I could see was a national frown
It was pounded from flesh
And harder than steel
Pretty in pink that's just how I feel
Leave me alone 'cause I'm my best friend

If you wanna be with me I'll be there til the end
Til the end of time and time again
Just leave me alone 'cause I'm my best friend
Yeah, yeah
'cause I'm my best friend now
'cause I'm my best friend now

All I got is might and will
If all I got is might and will
Can't slow down 'cause down we'll go
Where I step you don't wanna know
Round round round we'll go
Where I step is where I wanna go
Go go go go
Where I wanna be is where I wanna go
Lofty thoughts high ideals
lofty skirts
Is what appeals
This baby is no Baby Ruth
He was too smart for her
She was so damned cute
I'm sick and tired can't be late
I'm so damn mad I can't keep straight
Time and time and time again
Leave me alone 'cause I'm my best friend yeah
Leave me alone 'cause I'm my best friend yeah
I'm my best friend yeah
I'm my best friend yeah
I'm my best friend yeah

    Robin Zander needs to donate his vocal cords to science. Voice talent so extraordinary it's almost supernatural! 💫

  18. Pat Ennis

    Robin is channeling Peter Murphy. Nice!

  19. traie matthews

  20. Acecool444

    Video is from the 2003 Concert, Sendai, Japan about 42 minutes into the act.

  21. Acecool444

    Geez, Robin Zander is freaking cool. He's in his very early 50's In the video, but looks, sings and acts like he's in his early 30's. I'm having what he's having! Even if it's donkey poop sprinkled with ocean sea weed strips regurgitated by circling seagulls over a dead mans carcass :w00t: LOL

    True Dodger Blue

    Fuck. Yeah.

  22. ronfowlermusic

  25. music4ever

    How bout bringing this back in the setlist this Summer?? :)

  26. meinohama

    I believe this show was in Japan in 2003. During their tour in Japan, Robin caught cold and went see a doctor. How can you believe it from his powerful vocal ? No doubt he is one of the Best Vocalist in 100 years !
