Why Can't We Be Friends Lyrics

Artist: War
Album: Why Can't We Be Friends?

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I seen you 'round for a long long time
I really 'membered you when you drink my wine

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I seen you walkin' down in Chinatown
I called you but you could not look around

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I bring my money to the welfare line
I see you standing in it every time

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

The color of your skin don't matter to me
As long as we can live in harmony

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I'd kinda like to be the President
so I can show you how your money's spent

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

Sometimes I don't speak too bright
but yet I know what I'm talking about

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I know you're working for the CIA
they wouldn't have you in the Mafia

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I'm really into history, espacially with the civil rights movement and the Civil War. I know this sounds kind of wierd, but I read the American Girl books for Addie, a slave. They're actually pretty cool, all about how she escapes slavery in 1964 and then tries to find her family when slavery ends. Sometimes I wish that I lived on a plantation back then so I could tell people off for being mean to my slaves. Maybe, if I'd lived been a teenager in the sixties, I could even be in the boycotts and everything! Even though Martin Luther King Jr. died, it's nice to think that his followers still respected his no-violence attitude. After all, why try to treat the bad people the way they treated the African-Americans? And you have to admire them- even through the 200+ years slavery was practiced, they stayed strong and kept on fighting. Now they blend right in. I think this song just says that all and more. (Although I don't quite know whose point of view it's from.)

4 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Dont they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You want something but dont get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
The Holy Bible : New International Version. 1996, c1984 (Jas 4:1-3). Grand Rapids: Zondervan.

by bella is a dumbass on 8/4/2008 4:39am
the second verse is.

I called you but you could not look around so what you put is a bunch of bs lies. dont try and make a good song bad douchebag
by amber on 8/16/2008 11:32pm

The Joob-Joobs are coming!
this song is awsome when aliens sing it - pixar is also awsome.

I know all the lyrics and i've only heard the song once. amazing.

people - each verse is relating to a different circumstance, but collectively refers to peace and harmony. dont over-analyse a cool song!

oh my god i!!!!!!!! realy love this song it so great, i think all hostile people should learn that song, people like u,i write it down so i can learn it but i'm very friendly.
by bk on 9/1/2008 10:00am
dont be so mean to bella we all have a right to think what we want and if she thinks the song isn't good enough let her think that and you can think what you want but don't call her a dumb ass!
i totally agree with her but i also don't i like it but it's wierd thats my opinion and you all have yours take the advise from a semi-prefesional singer
by buso on 9/4/2008 2:09pm
i love this song
by julia on 9/9/2008 5:04pm
kay--don't be mean if bella got the words wrong. the words are actually i called you but you could not look around. (i have the cd)
also, the artist is war. smash mouth redid it.
also, also: it's kind of ironic that you're cursing and being mean over a song called "why can't we be friends?" just noting that.... <3
by JP on 9/17/2008 2:52am
K so I def heard this song the first time at the end of Lethal Weapon 4 or smthng way long ago and I member one time one of my bfs got into a fight with me and another of our bfs, so we called her and sang her this song using three-way. she def cracked up and started talkin to us agin x)
by narja on 9/19/2008 2:52pm

by lovebb7 on 9/29/2008 4:04pm
why can't we all be friendds? i dontt gett itt....

by Josh on 9/29/2008 9:37pm
just to correct a few things on the comments here:
- Smash Mouth did a cover. War did the original in.. the late 70's i think?
- the song's not trying to settle war.
- and unrelated, upwards on the comments, slavery did not end in 1964 haha, it was way earlier than that my friend.
great song though. great band.
by T Rex on 9/30/2008 7:11pm
Check Bella's comment a little bit below mine and listen to the song.... What, is Bella on Crack? or does she have a very serious hearing defect?

i'd be better if it'd have better verses. i don't mean its bad but it's just advice
by AcidJazz210 on 11/6/2008 10:00pm
Sean you are correct, Bella was wrong about the lyrics. I'd also like to add a correction.. It's not "sometimes i don't speak too bright". the correct lyrics are "sometimes i don't speak right, but yet i know what i'm talkin' about". Trust me, i knew the drummer =]. Peace everyone!
by Charly on 11/9/2008 7:30pm

by Sonso on 10/27/2009 10:38pm
Hey Joey the slaves were freed by Abe Lincoln in 1865 so I think u mean she escaped in 1864 and martin Luther king jr. Died after he acheved equal rights so his followers would have no reason for violence anyway they already won and also if u lived back then in the time of slaves you would have been killed if u spoke out agaist slavery in the south besides u would have been brought up thinking slavery was good not how u people think now so u probably would have no problem with slavery lastly wat does this have to do with this song?
by kozma on 11/7/2009 6:11pm

by ... on 12/7/2009 8:28pm
this song is kinda crappy cuz all the majority of lyrics is "why cant we be friends" its like somebody from elementary making a song just to pass and go on to the next level... in the same sense as making a trash song to be just heard... i think they should had reduced the amount of "why cant we be friends" lines with more better and sensible lyrics...

by Grandmother on 1/1/2010 9:12am
If anyone can't figure out why we can't be friends, look at a lot of the comments here. Look at the language here. There is no respect, no caring.
When this song came out, we wanted to change the world. We wanted to compromise and learn from each other. Well.. Look where that got us.

Okay. There are two different versions of this song. This version happens to be by War. The original. Smash Mouth did this song a couple of years AFTER War.
by kulababa on 5/6/2010 11:17am
i luv this song its awesue
by Ralph on 5/12/2010 11:51pm
haha Tim I'm pretty sure Smash Mouth did this song more than a COUPLE years after War ... seeing as War was a '70s band and SM was from the '90s, I'd say it's more like a couple decades ...

but whatever, good song, good album!

Well i'm no hippie, and i'm against slavery, but this is a good song..not the best...and far from the worst....the lyrics are right and i think that more people should be writting songs like this one...songs that have more depth than what they did last week with they're friends at a party or whatever it is that all theese song writters are writting about.
by cassidy on 9/17/2010 9:14am
i love derek
by Red on 9/19/2010 9:44am
redneck gives rednecks a bad name. Too bad we tend to judge everyone by our own worst values and behaviors.

thank u for put the lyrics
by John on 12/9/2010 7:52pm
the song has simple lyrics but they're meaningful. The lyrics aren't just about racism. it was made with the cold war in mind; when it first came out it was broadcasted simultaneously to American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts.

by Morten on 9/7/2011 8:35am
great lyrics. I know your working for the cia....

Maybe the american people should ask themselves why most presidents have worked in the cia?
mena affair with clinton, jfk "intervention" (mcCains word).
If these "accidents" never get questioned, why would the people stop doing it?
by Joshua on 10/19/2011 12:00am
Who's here because of Adam Carolla?

I agree these lyrics are absolute shit.

I really like this song but the way they sang it Walt Disney's Bridge To Terabithia is way much better. That movie made my tough heart cry.

That movie made me feel sad for three days, it really touched my heart so I bought its original DVD.
