On the floor the people dance around
Moving close together
But there all alone in the corner
There's the girl I once knew
Who broke me in two.

So won't you please play a songa sentimental song
For my sentimental friend over there.
We've been so long apart make it go right to the heart
Of my sentimental friend over there.
Bring the tears to her eyes help to make her realize
The love we had was just beyond compare.
Then if the time is right ,maybe I'll hold her tight
My sentimental friend over there.

I recall the way she used to feel
When we heard a sad song
The teardrops would fall and she'd hold me
And tell me, she'd be for ever with me.

So won't you please play a song, a sentimental song
For my sentimental friend over there.
We've been so long apart, make it go right to the heart
Of my sentimental friend over there.
Bring the tears to her eyes, help to make her realize
The love we had was just beyond compare.
Then if the time is right, maybe I'll hold her tight
My sentimental friend over there.

Oh won't you please play a song, a sentimental song
For my sentimental friend over there.

We've been so long apart
Make it go right to the heart
Of my sentimental friend over there.
Bring the tears to her eyes, help to make her realize
The love we had was just beyond compare.
And then if the time is right, maybe I'll hold her tight
My sentimental friend over there.

So won't you please play a song, a sentimental song
For my sentimental friend over there...
