Ben, the two of us need live no more
We've both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own, I'll never be alone
And you my friend will see, you got a friend in me
(You got a friend in me)

Ben, you're always running here and there
You feel you're not wanted anyway
If you ever look behind and don't like what you find
There's something you should know, you gotta place to go
(You gotta place to go)

I used to say I and me, now's it's us, now's it we
(I used to say I and me, now's it's us, now's it we)

Ben most people would turn you away
I don't listen to word they say
They don't see you as I do, I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again if they had a friend like Ben, like Ben
(A friend)
