HOGARTH
When eyes meet in silence
A pact can be made
A life-long alliance
That won't be betrayed
Be friendly, befriend me now
Be friendly

A friend is a friend
Nothing can change that
Arguments, squabbles
Can't break the contract
That each of you makes
To the death, to the end
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend

WOODLAND CREATURES
Be friendly, befriend me now
(repeat 2 times)
Be friendly

HOGARTH
A promise is a promise
A handshake will seal it
No amount of discussion
Can ever repeat it
Commitment forever
To borrow or lend
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend
Be friendly, befriend me now
(repeat 2 times)
Be friendly

When eyes meet in silence, A pact can be made
BADGER You need a pact
A life-long alliance, That won't be betrayed
CROW Won't be betrayed
You need a mate
BADGER You need a mate
When facing the end
What is the fate
BADGER What is the fate
Now facing my friend
Facing my friend
What faces my friend
Be friendly, befriend me now
(repeat 2 times)

HOGARTH and WOODLAND CREATURES
A friend is a friend
Nothing can change that
Arguments, squabbles
Can't break the contract
That each of you makes
To the death, to the end
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend

HOGARTH
Be friendly now
Be friendly now
Be friendly, befriend me now
