Michael Jackson - Ben
Tekst: Don Black / Muziek: Walter Scharf
(1972)








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
Turn you away
I don’t listen to a word they say
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
