Kenny Rogers - Daytime Friends Lyrics

And he'll tell her he's working late again
But she knows too well there's something going on
She's been neglected and she needs a friend
So her trembling fingers dial the telephone

And Lord it hurts her, doing this again
He's the best friend that her husband ever knew
When she's lonely, he's more than just a friend
He's the one she longs to give her body to

Daytime friends and nighttime lovers
Hoping no one else discovers
Where they go, what they do
In their secret hideaway

Daytime friends and nighttime lovers
They don't want to hurt the others
So they love in the nighttime
And shake hands in the light of day

And when it's over, there's no peace of mind
Just a longing for the way things should have been
And she wonders why some men never find
That a woman needs a lover and a friend

Daytime friends and nighttime lovers

Kenny Rogers Daytime Friends Comments

    Love the tune, but the words are all about something very unseemly. Kind of strange. Have always wished it had different lyrics.

  15. 123xconnieb

    Listening to this takes me right back to being 10 years old and this song was playing on the radio ALL the time in the old farm house where I lived.

    Rhonda Boncutter

    I hope you had some good memories from that house! I loved being a kid, today's kids want to grow up so fast! Childhood only lasts for a few years, an adult, is until you die!

    Adultery is NEVER okay
    Have the balls to leave

  17. Raymond Gross

  18. Bert Clayton

    I never listened to the lyrics or paid them any mind until years later. I simply liked the beat. Where I still like the beat but cheating songs just aren't kosher. Still a good sounding song.

    Gotta love how this song explains exactly what's going on, without diminishing the heartache, the pain, and the overall shame of being unfaithful to a loved one.

    It's so we think we know someone and it turns out we had no idea who we fell in love with even more and is how women no longer stand together about these things like yrs.ago I jus wish men n women knew how selfish they are and that it's all gona come bk on the very ones that have in to ttemptation also the ones that justknew about it and could've spoke up but didn't they will be held just as accountable I'm so sorry for the lady with her child I'm really beginning to believe that all men just can not help it they're not strong enough or do not even want to fight allow lust to control them I think its very sad!!! Lucy

    Rhonda Boncutter
