Back to original Chorus to finish off. Lyrics: I've got this friend I don't think you know him He's not much for words He's hid in his hardened way Oh I've got this friend A loveless romantic All that he really wants Is someone to want him back Ohh, if the right one came If the right one came along Ohh, If the right one came, along I've got this friend I don't think you know her She sings a simple song It sounds a lot like his Oh I've got this friend Holding onto her heart Like it's a little secret Like it's all she's got to give Ohh, if the right one came If the right one came along Ohh, if the right one came, along It'd be such a shame (If they never meet) She sounds lovely (He sounds right out of a dream) If only (If only) If only Ohh Ohh, if the right one came If the right one came along Ohh, (I've got this friend) if the right one came If the right one came along Ohh, (I've got this friend) If the right one came, along
