Friends are a lovely thing to have
in this sometimes cruel life,
they can provide an anchor
in times of trouble and strife.
Friends, a wonderful thing to me;
they can help you day by day;
a strong shoulder to lean on
and help you find the right way.
Friends are a very precious thing,
worth more than silver or gold;
more valuable than riches -
true friendship never grows old.
Friends make your life worth living,
even when dreams donít come true;
and I am happy to say
I have found a friend in you.
