Found On
Hamburg .. A Scandal In Bohemia .. Draining The Glass 1982 - 86 ..Cake City
The Butcher Says..
Live version from 1999-09-13

Here I am, I'm just lying on the floor with you
We had to get drunk, it was the only thing we could do
Well, it's funny 'coz I thought that it could have turned out quite romantic
But it isn't like that, which is fine, 'coz it means I can stand it

Chorus:

My best friend's girlfriend... I've got a girlfriend
And you're somebody's girlfriend too
You know it only ever makes me down

Oh look, it's easy,
You come round my house, give me information, then you go home
Well, it sure beats talking all that foolish rubbish on the telephone
But I don't know about all the implications of all this,
I just feel so-so,
But it's a measure of a feeling that I can't identify
that I can let you go

Chorus

Something's got a hold on my heart and it's making me down
You left me singing
"Don't sleep in the subway darling,
Don't standing in the pouring rain, Maureen."

    I've listened to Girlfriend a billion or so times and these lyrics at best approximate Pat's words. What are the real words? I can hear "Wendell" and "Marnie" spoken at times.
