Friday Night Fights: They smile in your face/All the time they wanna take your place

FNF is back, dawg! Are you ready to rummmmmmble? Doc Strange is!

Strange Tales #139
All panels in this post are from Strange Tales #139 (December 1965)
Written by Stan Lee, art by Steve Ditko


What they do!
They smile in your face
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers

Strange Tales #139

All you fellows who have someone and you really care, yeah, yeah
Then it's all of you fellows who better beware, yeah yeah
Somebody's out to get your lady
A few of your buddies they sure look shady

Strange Tales #139

Blades are long, clenched tight in their fist
Aimin' straight at your back
And I don't think they'll miss

Strange Tales #139

What they do!
They smile in your face
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers

Strange Tales #139

I keep gettin' all these visits from my friends, yeah,
They come to my house again and again and again and again, yeah
So are they there to see my woman

Strange Tales #139

I don't even be home but they just keep on comin'
What can I do to get on the right track
I wish they'd take some of these knives off my back

Strange Tales #139

They smile in your face
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers

Strange Tales #139

Low down... dirty...
What they do!
They smile in your face
Smiling faces... smiling faces sometimes tell lies
Back stabbers

Strange Tales #139

So the morale of the story is...cheaters sometimes win! Thanks, Stan!

(Fire it up and read it again:)

Y'know, little stuffed bull, while I agree this-here is some seriously cool, ah, *stuff*...you do seem awfully tired and cranky lately re: the comics universe in general. Would a mug of hot cocoa help?

Wow, the O Jays on Soul Train. Even without the Doc Strange stuff, this would be good content.

Between The O'Jays and Ditko-era Dr. Strange, you just about made my day!
