about

M: Hello! As many of you know, I'm Mel.
E: And I'm El.
M: And we have been best friends since we were twelve years old.
E: But lately things have gotten a little more...intense.
M: And we'd like to announce that our relationship has evolved into something more.
E: We are officially CODEFRIENDENT!
M: We want to take this opportunity to put our face(s) on a significant issue and help folks come to terms with their own codefriendency.
E: Not that there's anything wrong with being codefriendent!
M: Totally! We want to make codefriendency the "handi-capable" of behavioral issues.
E: Oprah? Gayle? Are you paying attention?
M: Yeah, El, like Oprah and Gayle have nothing better to do right now...

lyrics

SHE’S MY OTHER HALF, SHE’S MY RIGHT ARM, YES SHE COMPLETES ME
WE ARE NOT DYSFUNCTIONAL – SHE NEVER, EVER BEATS ME

SHE’S THE TOTES TO MY MCGOATS AND THE DRESSING TO MY SALAD
I’M 16 BARS UPTEMPO AND SHE’S MY CONTRASTING BALLAD.

PEOPLE LIKE TO ASK ME, “DON’T YOU EVER HATE HER?”
BUT IF SHE WAS A GUY, I WOULD TOTALLY DATE HER.

I DON’T EVER GET SICK OF HER, I DON’T EVER O.D.
WE TALK UNTIL OUR THROATS ARE SORE, WE LAUGH UNTIL WE PEE

I WANT A MINIATURE VERSION OF YOU SITTING ON MY SHELF
‘CAUSE I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I COULD THROW UP ON MYSELF
PERHAPS WE SHOULD START WORKING ON BECOMING INDEPENDENT
BUT, HEY, I DON’T SEE NOTHIN’ WRONG WITH BEIN’ CODEFRIENDENT
HEY, I DON’T SEE NOTHIN’ WRONG WITH BEIN’ CODEFRIENDENT

WHEN I NEED TO DRESS MYSELF, SHE TELLS ME WHAT TO WEAR
SHE’S THE ONLY ONE WHO’S HONEST WHEN I’M SPORTING STUPID HAIR

HER HAIR IS OFTEN STUPID, BUT I STILL THINK SHE’S PRETTY
AND I LOVE THAT SHE STILL LOVES ME WHEN MY MOOD IS PRETTY SHITTY

AND MAN, DOES SHE GET MOODY. NOW SHE’S JECKYLL, NOW SHE’S HYDE
BUT WHO COULD CHOOSE STABILITY WITH THIS GIRL BY YOUR SIDE?

I WANT A GIANT POSTER OF YOU MOUNTED ON MY CEILING
YOUR EYES TELLIN’ ME HOW YOU’LL NEVER LOSE THAT LOVIN’ FEELING
I MIGHT GET ALL RELIGIOUS AND ENGRAVE YOU ON A PENDANT
TO WEAR AROUND MY NECK. IN YOU I TRUST. I’M CODEFRIENDENT.
TO WEAR AROUND MY NECK. IN YOU I TRUST. I’M CODEFRIENDENT

YOU’RE MY PERSON
AND I DON’T THINK IT’S A SIN
THAT I SOMETIMES WANT TO WRAP MYSELF
IN A COAT MADE OF YOUR SKIN
IT’S A COAT MADE OF YOUR SKIN.
YOUR LOVELY, PASTY SKIN...

SHE FITS ME LIKE A PAIR OF SPANX, A WEDDING DRESS, A GLOVE
AND I’M SORRY IF IT MAKES YOU ILL TO WITNESS ALL THIS LOVE

HELL NO! I AIN’T SORRY IF SOME PEEPS OUT THERE ARE JEALOUS.
I LOVE YOU! I JUST LOVE YOU! (DID THAT SOUND OVERZEALOUS?)

LIKE A COURT-APPOINTED LAWYER TO A HOOLIGAN DEFENDANT
WE ARE INDIVISIBLE. WE’RE CODEFRIENDENT
LIKE A TINY BAG OF PEANUTS TO A FLIGHT ATTENDANT
WE’VE BECOME INSEPARABLE. WE’RE CODEFRIENDENT
LIKE A STINKY GARBAGE STENCH TO A SUPERINTENDENT
WE’RE STUCK ON EACH OTHER, WE ARE CODEFRIENDENT
PERHAPS IT SOUNDS PRETENTIOUS, BUT OUR FRIENDSHIP IS TRANSCENDENT
AND WE HOPE YOU FIND A PARTNER WITH WHOM YOU’LL BE CODEFRIENDENT

I NEED AN IV DRIP OF YOU TO KEEP ME MEDICATED
I’M STRUNG OUT ON YOUR JUNK AND I LIKE BEIN’ SEDATED
WE SHOULD START WORKING ON BECOMING INDEPENDENT
BUT HEY, I DON’T SEE NOTHIN’ WRONG WITH BEIN’ CODEFRIENDENT
HEY, I DON’T SEE NOTHIN’ WRONG WITH BEIN’ CODEFRIENDENT
