"Just a Friend" is the twelfth song from the soundtrack of The Book of Life.

Lyrics

Pancho:
You, you got what I need
But you say he's just a friend
But you say he's just a friend
Oh baby you…

Rap:
So I took blah-blah's word for it at this time
I said just havin' a friend couldn't be no crime
'Cause I have friends and that's a fact
Like Agnes, Agatha, Germaine, and Jack
Forget about that, let's go into the story
About a girl named blah-blah-blah that adored
So we started talking to her, gettin' familiar
Spendin' a lot of time so we can build a
Relationship or some understanding
How it's gonna be in the future we was plannin'
Everything sounded so dandy and sweet
I had no idea I was in for a treat
After this was established, everything was cool
The tour was over and she went back to school
I called every day to see how she was doing
Everytime that I called her it seemed somethin' was brewin'
I called her room, a guy picked up, and then I called again
I said, "Yo, who was that?" "Oh, he's just a friend"
Don't gimme that man, yo don't even gimme that

You, you got what I need
But you say he's just a friend
And you say he's just a friend
Oh baby you
You got what I need
But you say he's just a friend
But you say he's just a friend
Oh baby you
You got what I need
But you say he's just a friend
But you say he's just a friend

So I came to her college on a surprise visit
To see my girl that was so exquisite
It was a school day, so I knew she was there
The first semester of the school year
I went to a gate to ask where was her dorm
This guy made me fill out a visitor's form
He told me where it was and I as on my way
To see my baby doll, I was happy to say
I arrived in front of the dormitory
Yo, could you tell me where is door three?
They showed me where it was for the moment
I didn't know I was in for such an event
So I came to her room and opened the door
Oh, snap! Guess what I saw?
A fella tongue-kissin' my girl in the mouth,
I was so in shock my heart went down south
So please listen to the message that I send
Don't ever talk to a girl who says she just has a friend

Trivia

  • The version from the movie is much shorter, given that the movie doesn't add the rap part.
  • This song is sung by Pancho Rodríguez in an attempt to help Manolo win over María.
