The Lyrics

Try to be nice to nice, that they treat you like a brother...and then it's too late! Original Song
Like a brother
I don’t like to see you crying
Hate to see you suffer
You’re sure you can change bad-boy Brian
You know that by your side, I’ll stay
Think so much of you, I won’t say, yeah!

Here for comfort
All your friends think that I’m gay
Your eyes, make my heart beat faster
It’s you I love, yet we can’t date
I’m at your house most ev’ry day
And I’m your best friend, so you say
Ohhh noo

That guy Mike…just made you cry
And last year, Steve…he left you for Eve
Can’t believe…that you can’t see
I’m in the friend zone! (in the friend zone)
The damn friend zone (in the friend zone)
Stuck in the friend zone (feel all alone)
Oh, in the friend zone!
(Feel all alone)

Come on, baby
Come on, baby
Come on

You remember
For your birthday wrote love song
Oh, you laughed and said “You’re ser’ous?”
We’ve been best friends since we were one
Oh, I know, that’s what I’m trying to say
I can be your boyfriend here one day

Other guys…aren’t quite as nice
Don't punish me…by ignoring me
Come on, be with me
‘Cause you can’t see
In the friend zone (feel all alone)
I hate the friend zone (I need to go)
Help me, in the friend zone! (in the friend zone)
“Help me for my date with Joe?” (deep in friend zone)

While this is good it's not your funniest parody. This is a topic that's tough to make funny because the people who write about it have been in the shoes of the main character and never the jock douchebag guy that she ends up with.

IDK Matt I am pathetically alone but I still found this funny! 5's

I think the song, in its structure, worked against you in putting more humor in it. Not a bad idea, thiough.

I know right?

(Artistry) This was pretty good, though these days "friend zone" is usually used by entitled douchebags who think they deserve a shag because they were nice. 555, but definitely could've used a lot more humour.

(Artistry) Amen Abbott! I definitely can relate. Kind of sombre tone, but the topic was where the humor was.

(Artistry) My comment from 2013 still stands.
Blaydeman - June 24, 2016 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Yeah, I echo what I was saying a few years ago, but three years older I have a much better more rounded feeling about this topic. Completely get it, but now with a deeper more complex understanding. To add new feedback: pacing was so smooth! So good work there too!

There's always Brozoned, that's even worse.

(Artistry) Wait, this was in the Marvin Gaye round? Given my memory I'm not surprised I didn't recognise it, but I think it should've been run by me if it was okay, though. Too late now, I guess. Anyway, I still agree with what I said back then: good stuff, 555 worthy, but lacking in humour and undermined by the type of person who uses "friend zone" these days.
