"Bes' Friends" lyrics - THE LOVIN' SPOONFUL

"Bes' Friends"

Well I've heard about the quarrels, and how it always ends
And how a couple loses edge and never make amends
And how they weave a false cocoon and how the web extends
But I've never heard of lovers that could be best friends

Yes I've heard that love that's lasting comes far and in between
And how that childhood sweetheart gets ornery and mean
They always say the honeymoon is where the romance ends
But I've never heard of lovers that can be best friends

Well I've heard your dirty stories about your last affair
And how you got in houses when you knew no one was there
If you want to find a lover gonna love til the end,
Go on and find yourself a lover that can be your best friend
