Writers are an emotional lot and for the most part live on Facebook. I propose, therefore, this slightly altered song as the official Facebook lament, based on “Release Me,” by songwriter Eddie Miller, whose song was covered by many.
Please unfriend me, let me go,
For I don’t like you anymore.
To waste our tags would be a sin;
Unfriend me and let me like again.
I have found a new friend dear.
LOL I want her near.
Her pokes are warm while yours are cold;
Unfriend me my darling, let me go.
Please unfriend me, can’t let you see?
You’d be a fool to status me.
To live a lie would bring us pain,
So unfriend me and let me like again.
