Analysis of Linkin Park's Fwendship (Moon Dance)



If you're ever in a jam, here I am
 If you're ever in a mess, S-O-S
 If you ever feel so happy, you land in jail; I'm your bail.
 It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
 When other friendships have been forgot,
 Ours will still be hot.
 Lah-dle-ah-dle-ah-dle dig, dig, dig.

If you're ever up a tree, phone to me.
 If you're ever down a well, ring my bell.
 If you ever lose your teeth, and you're out to dine; borrow mine.
 It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
 When other friendships have been forgate,
 Ours will still be great.
 Lah-dle-ah-dle-ah-dle, chuck, chuck, chuck.

If they ever black your eyes, put me wise.
 If they ever cook your goose, turn me loose.
 If they ever put a bullet through your brrain [sic]; I'll complain.
 It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
 When other friendships have been forgit,
 Ours will still be it.
 Lah-dle-ah-dle-ah-dle, hep, hep, hep.
