Cowsills – In Need Of A Friend lyrics

You say you know somebody
Someone who feels down
When you're feeling sad
Who's up when you're glad

But I don't know anybody
Haven't a person
Don't know where I stand
Gee, you're a lucky man

Hey, I need a friend
(I need a friend)
Not just a wall that I talk to
(I need a friend)
But mind having doors
I can walk through
(I need a friend, yes, I do)

You say you know somebody
Someone who shows you
The way when you're lost
At any cost

But I don't have anybody
I grope the dark
And I'm totally blind
Hey, don't you think that's unkind

[Repeat CHORUS]

I think I know somebody
Someone who feels
Just the way that you do
He reminds me of you

But, you'll have find that body
I'm sorry there's
Nary a thing I can do
You see, it's all up to you

But, you'll find a friend
(You'll find a friend)
Not just a wall that you talk to
(You'll find a friend)
Just show him the door
He can walk through
(You'll find a friend, yes, you can)

Do do do do do do
