My Very Best Friend
by Bob Welbaum
with Grayson Knight
I have a friend who’s the very best.
He’s there whenever I need him.
He’s always cheerful and kind to me
And never needs a reason.
Whenever I’m feeling lonely or sad
and everything’s wrong that day,
he knows to turn things right around
and exactly what to say.
He’s everything I need in a friend,
on that we both agree.
And I always know I can count on him
because, you see, he’s me!
