Devin dawson - Asking for a friend

Hey I was just wondering if anyone was sitting here
And if not, would it be okay if someone bought you a beer?
Let's say that someone wanted to dance
Would he have any snowball in hell of a chance
To get you out on the floor before this slow song ends?
Oh hey, I'm just asking for a friend

He ain't ever been any good at laying it all out on the line
I swear down deep, believe me girl, he's a really good guy
If you can find it in your heart just to cut him some slack
He'll be Johnny-on-the-spot here in two seconds flat
Yeah, he's holding his breath, come on give him a second with you

Oh hey
Yeah what do you say?
It's Friday night and you're beautiful, so beautiful
What man wouldn't think you were the love of his life?
He'd be a fool, he'd be a fool
Just one drink would sure mean a lot to him
Yeah, I'm just asking for a friend


Let's say this friend of mine went and messed up real bad
And he'd do anything in this world, girl, to get you back
Hey what kind of sorry would it take for a man to erase his worst mistake
And would this even begin to make a dent?

Oh hey
What do you say?
It's Friday night and you're beautiful, so beautiful
What man wouldn't think you were the love of his life?
He'd be a fool, he'd be a fool
I don't mean to ramble on like this
Hey, I'm just asking for a friend

Yeah, what if I told you he hadn't slept in weeks?
And he was standing right here in front of you instead of me
Is there any way you could ever love him again?
Just asking for a friend
