Four letter word

Hi everyone

Today I came across a song that I haven't heard for ages called 'friend is a four letter word'. I used to listen to it in the past without really thinking about the lyrics but today I paid attention to the title and realized that there was something wrong with it. In fact when I first saw the sentence 'friend is a four letter word' it pretty confused me because the word friend doesn't have 'four' word. Therefore I thought that it was a kind of figure of speech and googled it. I found several translations so I still don't understand what it means. 

Can you guys please tell me what it means and in which context would you use it?

Hi Giada.


It is an offensive way to expression: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four-letter_word

For example the word (my apologies) "fuck". It has 4 letters.

In your sentence, "friend is a ____ (offensive word with 4 letters)"

Is it Cake?) I had the same thought not so long ago, so it will be interesting to know for me too.
