((INTRO:)) [F-Bb/F- (4x)]

[F                        C7/E]
Ben, the two of us need look no more
[F                            C7/E]
We both found what we were looking for
[FM7                      Em7]
With a friend to call my own
[     A/C#      Eb7]
I'll never be alone
[    D7                   C#7]
And you, my friend, will see
[       C7              F]
You've got a friend in me
[        Bb/F           F-Bb/F-]
(You've got a friend in me)

[F                          C7/E]
Ben, you're always running here and there
[F                          C7/E]
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
[FM7                  Em7]
If you'll ever look behind
[    A/C#                Eb7]
And don't like what you find
[          D7                 Db7]
There's something you should know
[       C7             F]
You've got a place to go
[        Bb/F           F-Bb/F]
(You've got a place to go)

[  Gm7         FM7]
I used to say I and me
[Gm7          F        pause]
Now it's us, now it's we
[   Gm7         FM7]
(I used to say I and me)
[ Gm7          F          Bb/F,C7sus]
(Now it's us, now it's we)

[F                           C7/E]
Ben, most people would turn you away
[F                   C7/E]
I don't listen to a word they say
[FM7                     C/E]
They don't see you as I do
[                     Eb7]
I wish they would try to
[     D7               C#7]
I'm sure they'd think again
[        C7hold            F-Bb/F]
If they had a friend like Ben
[     F-Bb/F            G-Bb/F]
Like Ben      (Like Ben),
[     F]
Like Ben.
