Friendship Bracelet

Friendship Bracelet
Lichen Throat

I saw the girls play pattycakes
Beside the cafetorium.
The sharp and practiced moves they made,
An ordered pandemonium.
I saw the folded classroom notes
They passed behind the teacher’s back.
I never read one, never wrote
My secrets down in blue or black.

Brightly woven bracelets
On skinny wishbone wrists.
Another year without one,
Another year unkissed. (x2)

I count the signatures each night
On yearbook pages filled with ink.
Do they sign just to be polite,
With empty words in green and pink?
“See you next fall,” is what they say,
“Enjoy the summer and stay cool.”
They’ll meet again on Saturday,
And I’ll see them next year in school.

Brightly woven bracelets
On smooth and slender wrists.
Another year without one,
Another year unkissed. (x2)

Don't palm me off
Your flattery is not enough
I can't be bought
With trinkets given without thought
It's not that easy
To deceive me

Oh I don't want your friendship bracelet
I don't want to just hang out..
...or be just another guy that you can do without

Is it my fate
To idle in the wings and wait
Even one kiss
Is better than some worthless gift
It means nothing
Without your loving

Oh I don't want your friendship bracelet
I don't want to just hang out..
...or be just another guy that you can do without

I want more than conversation
I don't want to sit and chat
I don't want your friendship bracelet
I want more than that
I want more than that
I want more than that...

I made something I want to share
A token to show how much I care
I was thinking back to summer camp in the Malibu Hills
It brought back some deeply ingrained skills

Here’s a friendship bracelet
It took me a while to make it
Here’s a friendship bracelet
We’re best friends, let’s face it

Not sure how to show you how I feel
A store bought gift won’t close the deal
You’re the type that likes a guy who works with his hands
Wear this on your wrist so I know where we stand

We've been friends for maybe way too long
Let's take that next step if it's right or wrong

Take off your friendship bracelet
Put on this diamond ring and I will sing.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la....

Mr. REO sang this before
Just like him I can't fight this no more

Take off your friendship bracelet
Put on this diamond ring and you will sing.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la...


Our love won't climb no mountains
Our love won't part no sea
But I've known you a real long time
And that's good enough for me.

It's good enough for me

La, la, la, la, la, la, la...

I understand you may not feel the same
But lose the boyfriend and we'll be on our way

Take off the friendship bracelet
Put on this diamond ring and we will sing.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...

Friendship Bracelet
The Mellfire Trifecta

Those were the days when we ignored our watches
Calendars too, what was the use?
Back in high school we were just marching forward
What was to come was looking so good

Our friend started up a punk band
But we all hated the name
“Friendship Bracelet”? oh my God
Was he insane?

Six of us guys always stuck close together
Shielded from harm, apart from the crowd
When we were bored at school, we had our own stairwell
We played a game when time would allow

Killer hackeysack was what we called it
Our unique elimination game
Kick the sack at one of your best friends
Then if it hits the ground they’re out (and/or maimed)

Looking back on it today
It’s amazing no one caught us in the act
But this crew of six survived
To drink on weekends at the house where parents weren’t
We always had each others’ backs

SOLO

One day our friend broke up the punk band
He said its name was not the only flaw
It was time for changes, anyway
Another group would come along

Looking back on it today
It’s amazing that we didn’t hold the line
To ensure our crew survived
To drink on weekends, at our houses, parents now
Just laughing at our childish crimes

Drinking some beer on the back roads
The black top is miles away
Flashing lights and they pull me over
They're gonna take me to a cage

They shove me down, they push me to the ground
But I don't want their friendship bracelet
They bend my arm back, I think I heard it snap
But I don't want their friendship bracelet

Been sitting in this cell for hours
They still have me in cuffs
They say I gotta wait 'til the morning
Before I can see the judge

They shove me down, they push me to the ground
But I don't want their friendship bracelet
They bend my arm back, I think I heard it snap
But I don't want their friendship bracelet

They shove me down, they push me to the ground
But I don't want their friendship bracelet
They bend my arm back, I think I heard it snap
But I don't want their friendship bracelet

They punched me in the face, said I was unsafe
'Cuz I don't want their friendship bracelet
They tazed me in the ear, they brought me to tears
So fuck their goddamn friendship bracelet

Friendship Bracelet
by Starfinger

i remember meeting in secret
called from the forest for the big surprise
you were there and you acted like an idiot
smashing up the ring like a real tough guy

oh great a dwarf in the fellowship
all beard, no benefit
that's what i thought at the time
but i was such a fool,
and i'm sorry


gimli son of gloin
i got a present for you

it's a friendship bracelet

i made it last night
while i watched you sleep

it's a bracelet
it's a bracelet
it's a friendship bracelet

i wove it from my glorious golden locks
i made it for you, out of my hair,
to show you that i really care

you wear it on your wrist.
it's really neat

it's a bracelet!


fighting side by side my man
you're a natural sprinter, all across the land
and aragorn is jealous, cause we're so close
you are the dwarf that i like the most

i love the way you count the things that you kill
so i crafted you this gift with my elven skill
ohhhhhh

and I'm sorry that my dad treated your dad so bad,
by tthe way


gimli son of gloin
i got a present for you

it's a friendship bracelet

i made it last night
while i watched you sleep

it's a bracelet
it's a bracelet
it's a friendship bracelet

i wove it from my glorious golden locks
i made it for you, out of my hair,
to show you that i really care

you wear it on your wrist.

Friendship Bracelet
by Sweeney Toad 🐸

You the best boy destroy all the other puppers
Walk you everyday in the hot doggie summer
You slumber all day on the cold tile panels
Animal planet is your favorite channel
And damn yo why you barking so loud
You hear those bad guys outside so proud
Mistaking the sound of the TV doorbell for the real thing
Who’s at the door? It’s a mystery
You know we got history had you since a puppy
You always let me know when you get hungry
After puppy dinner you know you always get a treat
Then we play fetch always bring your toy to my feet
Then it’s time to sleep yes once again
You the best boy you my best friend
You taught me bout friendship no lessons wasted
You my best friend wear my friendship bracelet

You ain’t got no harness, you ain’t got no leash
You just got a best friendship bracelet made by me
You ain’t got no harness, you ain’t got no leash
You just got a best friendship bracelet made by me

Stand on your hind legs and clap your paws fast
I always laugh when you do your puppy dance
It must be rad to always be so happy
I swear every single day you always be clapping
This friendship lasting and all y’all are jelly
Gave you a bath when you start to get smelly
Once you get clean you shake off the water
Try to dry you off why do I bother
I lost your collar once so I made a replacement
It’s a black and white friendship bracelet
I laced it up and you wear it around your face
Put a bell on it hear every sound you make
In case I misplace it ever again
I’ll make you a new one you’re my best friend
You taught me bout friendship no lessons wasted
You my best friend wear my friendship bracelet

You ain’t got no harness, you ain’t got no leash
You just got a best friendship bracelet made by me
You ain’t got no harness, you ain’t got no leash
You just got a best friendship bracelet made by me
You ain’t got no harness, you ain’t got no leash
You just got a best friendship bracelet made by me
You ain’t got no harness, you ain’t got no leash
You just got a best friendship bracelet made by me
