The night was clear and the wind was soft

They talked a little, drank a lot
His voice sounded kind of dry
How about sticking around?"

Just a friend of mine
He said, "Who’s that guy in the dressing gown?"

Just a friend of mine
He said, "Who’s that guy following us about?"
I feel like I’m gonna die"
Just a friend of mine

The place got crowded and the air too hot
Since you walked in, things don’t look the same
He said, "Who’s that guy with the funny smile?"
He said, "Let’s go out for a while"
She said, "He’s just a friend of mine"
Just a friend of mine
Are you new in this town?
He was nice and gentle, still rough enough

She said, "He’s just a friend of mine"
Just a friend of mine
As the evening went by
The place was dark and the band played loud
He’s just a friend, he’ just a friend
He’s just a friend of mine"
She said, "Hold it, baby, it gets too much
He took her home in the early mornin’
To keep her satisfied

He said, "Who’s that guy in the dressing gown?"
As they walked side by side
She said, "Please do come inside"
She said, "Baby, don’t you mind
She said, "He’s just a friend of mine"
Just a friend of mine
He said, "Baby, what’s your name?
