My friend Emma really knows what’s best

My friend Emma really knows me best

She took me to LA

She took me to the fair

She too looks for love

Even when there’s none there

But Emma is diligent

And more trained than me

Emma’s eye become violet

When our packs are all clean


When the phone rings

It is my turn to answer

I turn to Emma

She helps me with cancer

A word with my partner,

What did you say?

“She says no”

Emma says, “No way”

For she only accepts

If we both get paid


That’s textbook, boss

What you think we are, stupid?

Emma knows better

Than to look like rose cupid

But we need more money

We need to get by

We want that dress

Emma says, I should try

To accept only what’s worth

So that boss will think twice


When we finish a hit

Sometimes we don’t speak

But I remembered the time

Emma told me,

“I may have lost my heart

But, not my self-control.”

Emma kicks me the bike

And says, let’s go for a roll


Emma tells me jokes

Just to pass the time

She told me,

“Hey, we’re set in stone

So don’t bug if you think I’m lying

If one thing’s for sure

You’ve got me by your side

I won’t ever leave

No matter how hard you try

Your mistakes don’t matter

And mine will stay quiet”
