Songtekst

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

SONGTEKST LOOKIN" THROUGH THE WINDOWS

(Lookin' through the window)
(Lookin' through the window)
(Lookin' through the window)
(The window)
(Through the window)
(Lookin' through the window)

Lookin' through the windows
The window to your heart
Oh baby, yeah
I can see it's cloudy
The rain's about to start

Lookin' through the windows
(Lookin' through the window)
It seems I caused your fears
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And that little doubt, girl
(And your little doubt, girl)
And now it's bringing tears
(And it's bringing tears)

(Remember)
Just remember whatever makes you feel that way
Don't you worry 'cause I'm gonna stay
Right by your side
(By your side)
To keep on lookin' through the windows
Lookin' in your eyes

Looking through the windows
(Lookin' through the window)
Seems like the only way, yeah
I can't know your feelings
If you still love me today

(Remember)
Just remember whatever makes you feel that way
Don't you worry 'cause I'm gonna stay
Right by your side
(By your side)
To keep on lookin' through the windows
Lookin' in your eyes

Lovey dovey lovely one
Come sit down on my knee

Lovey dovey lovely one
Come sit down on my knee

Let's put our hands together and sing along
Come on, come on

I can tell you a story
That happened a long time ago
Little bitty pretty one
I've been watching you grow
