Keep an Eye

Keep an eye
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
On your close friend
Uh-huh, oh
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
On your close friend

‘Cause what you got, that’ll make you lose
And then, turn around and step in your shoes
I said they’ll turn around (oh yeah) and step in your shoes

Like the day I stood there numb
Watching my friend walk away
With my love on her arm
And all she left me was
The memory of the moment when she said,
"I’m sorry for what I have to do
But you see I love him just as much as you"

Oh!
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
On your close friend
Uh-huh, ooh yeah
Keep an eye
Keep an eye
You better watch out
For your close friend

The devil’s workshop is a busy place
On top of evil, there’s an innocent face
Oh, on top of evil (oh yeah), he puts an innocent face

She was just like a spider
Only twice as smart
Kindness was the thread
She used to weave our world apart
There used to be three of us seen all over town
Now, there’s only two
Someone’s missing, guess who

Now, I see how she schemed
And finally worked her way in between
She planted seeds of mistrust here and there
Causing us to fight unaware
Her comforting way when I would cry
Shadowed the look of triumph in her eye
Just like a snake on the limb of a tree,
A friend is an enemy you can’t see

Hm-mmm, ooh-ooh (oh-oh), ooh yeah

‘Cause what you got, that’ll make you lose
And then, turn around and step in your shoes
Oh, they’ll turn around (oh yeah) and step in your shoes

So, you better keep an eye
On your close friend
You better watch out
For your close friend
Oh! Don’t trust nobody
Don’t trust nobody
Keep an eye
On your close friend
You better watch out
For your close friend
You better watch out
(fade out)
