The Lyrics

Here's a twist on the classic Paul Simon hit about ending a fake or toxic friendship enjoy
The problem is always like an
Unsolved mystery
The answer is only discovered
throughout one's reality
I'd like to help you know "pals"
Won't let me just be me
There must be fifty ways
To end a friendship

I know, in life that people naturally grow apart
Furthermore, you sometimes find out
They're not your friend from the start
But I remind myself
'Cause I have a fearful heart
There must be fifty ways
To end a friendship

You must cut off the texts, Rex
Cancel all plans, Dan
You don't need to be smart, Art
Grow up and move on
Turn on the block, Doc
You don't need to check the clock
Just make sure you're gone, Don
And grow and move on

Ooh, must cut off the texts, Rex
Cancel all plans, Dan
You don't need to be smart, Art
Grow up and move on
Turn on the block, Doc
You don't need to check the clock
Just make sure you're gone, Don
And grow and move on

You know, it hurts us all
When they're just not a friend
I wish that all folks in this world were true
And never would pretend
I know, that's a total pipe dream
And everyone should know
About the fifty ways?

I know, that fakers want to
Stab us in the back
Then it's clear if you keep them
They'll just make your life look black
And so just smile
And you'll realize they're snakes waiting to attack
There must be fifty ways
To end a friendship

You must cut off the texts, Rex
Cancel all plans, Dan
You don't need to be smart, Art
Grow up and move on
Turn on the block, Doc
You don't need to check the clock
Just make sure you're gone, Don
And grow and move on

Cut off the texts, Rex
Cancel all plans, Dan
You don't need to be smart, Art
Grow up and move on
Turn on the block, Doc
You don't need to check the clock
Just make sure you're gone, Don
And grow and move on

Stanzas are quite good. It would have been best to change up the refrain; at least alternate two different choruses.This OS is pretty amusing in its original form , so it has lots of potential for humor as a parody
