When the roses lose their fragrance,
and the world seems at an end,
When the day has lost its gladness,
what a blessing is a Friend.
One who takes you as she finds you,
caring not who is to blame,
One who knows all your shortcomings,
but who loves you just the same.
Heaven sends a gift each morn,
of a bright new day to spend,
What a joy it is to share it with,
God's greatest gift...A Friend
Be nice to your friend
But don't ever offer a fag
They will think you as a disgrace
And then they'll pack their bag.
"Fag" is a British term for cigarette. It has nothing to do with the derogatory meaning too often used in North America.
