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 Ben will see, you’ve got a friend in me


Ben you’re always running here and there

You feel you’re not wanted 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


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

Like Ben, like Ben
