Ben the two of us need look no more
We 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 your always running here and there
You feel your not wanted anywhere
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 a 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
(a friend) like Ben (a friend like Ben
