Lyrics: 
 
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've got a friend in me 
(You've got a friend in me) 
 
Ben, you're always running here and there 
(Here and there) 
You feel you're not wanted anywhere 
(Anywhere) 
If you ever look behind 
And don't like what you find 
There's something you should know 
You've got a place to go 
(You've got a place to go) 
 
I used to say "I" and "me" 
Now it's "us", now it's "we" 
I used to say "I" and "me" 
Now it's "us", now it's "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 
(Like Ben) 
Like Ben
