Joseph Brown - Barenaked Ladies

Joseph Brown he had two friends
Their names were Dan and Jillian
Joseph Brown he had two friends
Their names were Dan and Jillian

Summer days walking on the strand
Dig their toes into the sand
See them walking hand in hand
Joseph, Dan, and Jillian

Joseph Brown on the merry-go-round
Dan and Jill on the see-saw
Brian King was throwing stones at Dan
So Jillian and Joseph ran

"Everyone of us is different!" said Joseph Brown
And soon enough he pulled his trousers down
You know, but Jill said, "You know I really like being 8
But I'd rather be 12 and I just can't wait"

Twelve years old Joe and Dan play ball
And Jillian hangs out at the mall
Joseph asks, "Where's Jillian?"
And Dan said, "Girls just aren't no fun"

Dan takes Jill to the high school prom
And Joe stays home watching TV with his mom
You know the jealous Joe Brown versus Jillian's door
He's surprised to find Dan's trousers on the floor

So Joseph leaves, Jillian leaves Dan
Finds herself married to some other man

Once a year they get a Christmas card
From a childhood friend from the school yard
Friends grow together, friends grow apart
Friends like to break each other's hearts

Joseph Brown he had two friends
Their names were Dan and Jillian
Joseph Brown he had two friends
Their names were Dan and Jillian
