The song is about a relationship (boyfriend – girlfriend) that is ending because the man doesn't want to be a boyfriend anymore. When you ask someone out (or are dating someone), and they ask you to be 'friends' it means they don't want to date you.

I thought I'd found the man of my dreams.
Now it seems, This is how the story ends:
He's goin' to turn me down and say,
"Can't We Be Friends?"

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong.
Not for long! I can see the way this ends:
Never again! Through with Love,
Through with men!
They play their game without shame, and who's to blame?

I thought I'd found a man I could trust.
What a bust! This is how the story ends:
He's goin' to turn me down and say,
"Can't We Be Friends?"

edit: it is a nice song… Maybe she's trying to tell you something, maybe not.. Hard to say, really.

Help with a Louis Armstrong / Ella Fitzgerald song?

Many years ago, I heard a duet with Louis Armstrong and I THINK Ella Fitzgerald, though I could be wrong about that last bit…(did he partner with other female singers?) Anyway, I believe the song was called "No One."

I just remember the opening lyrics being something like:

"No one, could ever love you… Like I do.
"No one… (something something)…"

I've googled this and Amazon.com'ed it to death, and can't find it… HELP! Are there any Louis Armstrong experts out there?
Thanks for the help so far, but none of those suggestions are the song I heard. I appreciate your efforts, nonetheless!
