I have been reading Bob Dylan lyrics for some inspiration and the lyrics to "Bessie Smith" inspired me to write this one. I started thinking about going to get some tea and sympathy from my best friend and it evolved into this story. I hope you enjoy it. (PS Im not sure about the raspberry 😀)

Edited to add: Apologies to anyone named Elaine. I don't know any Elaines but it sings so well in the song.

Lyrics

I'm going to see Elaine
Skipping all the way
She'll make me feel all better
She'll cheer me up today

You'll not hear me complain
About my best friend Elaine

Elaine is a friend of mine
Through good times and through bad
She feeds me tea and cake
The best I ever had

You'll not hear me complain
About my best friend Elaine

Elaine tells it like it is
She knows what I've been through
She's quick to say that he must leave
So I can start a-new

You'll not hear me complain
About my best friend Elaine

I going to see Elaine
I'm not sure what I'll see
I've heard that he moved right
Straight after leaving me

You'll not hear me complain?
About my best friend Elaine?

Now you'll hear me complain
About my ex best friend Elaine

I just want you to explain
Yes you my very ex best friend Elaine

There's something wrong inside your brain
my very nearly friend Elaine

I think you have finally gone insane
And you're now my ex friend Elaine

(Blows raspberry)
