Friends really are the frosting on the cake of life;
They love us on our good days or in times of strife.
They always are so ready to lend a helping hand,
And if we are troubled, they're sure to understand.

Chorus:
Promise me, I can count on you
'Cause on you I can always depend.
Promise me, I can count on you
It's only you that I need until the very bitter end.
Promise me, I can count on you
To stay in my heart forever, because you're my best friend.

Having friends is wondrous; they enrich us everyday,
And help to lessen burdens as we travel on our way.
So, I give thanks for friendship, the old ones and the new,
For they are of great value and to them I am most true.

Repeat Chorus

Promise me, I can count on you
To stay by my side through dismay
Because you're my best friend.
