It's a wonder what a friend can do
to lift you up when you're feeling blue.
A shining smile to brighten your day,
a friendly "Hello, come out to play."
A pat on the back, a shake of the hand,
A meaningful hug can make you feel grand.
Because of the greatness I've felt from your touch
I'd like to say Thank you, I love you so much.
And in return for your glorious deed,
I'll always be there for you in time of need.
If everyone in the world had a friend like you,
they wouldn't treat each other like an old shoe.
