Roy Orbison – Best Friend lyrics

La, la, la, la, la, la, la ...

An old man on his death bed whispered to me
You are the master of your destiny

A diamond is a diamond, a stone a stone
But a man's not all good nor all bad
Call them as you see them, you'll stand alone
You're the best friend that you ever had, oh, yeah
You're the best friend that you ever had

So laugh when it's time to laugh
Cry when it's time to cry
Live while it's time to live
You'll die when it's time to die

La, la, la, la, la, la, la ...

Then he closed his eyes and left me alone
My old friend's death brought his wisdom home

A diamond is a diamond, a stone a stone
But a man's not all good nor all bad
Call them as you see them, you'll stand alone
You're the best friend that you ever had, oh, yeah
You're the best friend that you ever had

So laugh when it's time to laugh
Cry when it's time to cry
Live while it's time to live
You'll die when it's time to die

La, la, la, la, la, la, la ...
