When you gotta good friend
That will stay right by your side
When you gotta good friend
Stay right by your side
Give her all your spare time
Love and treat her right

I mistreated my baby
And I can't see no reason why
I mistreated my baby
But I can't see no reason why
Anytime I think about it
I just wring my hands and cry

Ooh, baby
I may be right, I may be wrong
Ooh, baby
I may be right, I may be wrong
Watch your close friend, baby
Then your enemies can't do no harm

When you gotta good friend
Stay right by your side
When you gotta good friend
Stay right by your side
Give her all your spare time
Love and treat her right

Love and treat her right
Love and treat her right
Love and treat her right
Love and treat her right
Love and treat her right
Love and treat her right
