Geoff
You are my friend
And you will be
Till the end
But Geoff
Sometimes inside
I have these thoughts Geoff
I have to hide
Geoff Geoff Geoff
When I think of your house Geoff
That lovely country cottage of a house Geoff
And I know though it's often been said
In jest but one blow to your head


And it could be mine Geoff mine
All of the time
It could be so simple Geoff
Oh and life could be fine
Ah but killing you Geoff and really what for
Two floors and a roof, four walls and a door
Isn't our friendship worth so much more
Geoff
And Geoff
You are my friend
And you will be, maybe
Till the end
But Geoff
Sometimes I find
I have these ideas Geoff
Come into my mind
Geoff Geoff Geoff
When I think of your car Geoff
That four litre two seater dream of a car Geoff
And I know how quick it could be
If you, if you were run over by me


Then it could be mine Geoff mine
All of the time
It could be so simple Geoff
Oh and life could be fine
Ah but killing you Geoff and really what for
A car I would love till the next one I saw
Isn't our friendship worth so much more
Geoff

And Geoff
You are my friend
And you will be, maybe
Till the end
But Geoff
Sometimes awake in my bed
I hear these voices Geoff
Inside my head
Geoff Geoff Geoff
When I think of your wife Geoff
That smiling beguiling blonde of a wife Geoff
And I think, well we'll all die one day
But if I could just show you the way


Then she could be mine Geoff mine
All of the time
It could be so simple Geoff
Oh and life could be fine
Ah but killing you Geoff and really what for
A smile and a kiss from some bleach blonded whore
Isn't our friendship worth so much more
Geoff

Yes killing you Geoff, and really what for
I'm round at your house most evenings what's more
I've been in your car ten times or more
And as for your wife Geoff
Well what are friends for Geoff
Say nothing more Geoff
What are friends for
Oh Geoff
