Lyrics for “Best Friend” by Harry Nilsson
People let me tell you ’bout my best friend,
He’s a warm-hearted person who’ll love me ’til the end.
People let me tell you bout my best friend,
He’s a one boy cuddly toy — my up, my down, my pride and joy.
People let me tell you ’bout him — he’s so much fun,
Whether we’re talkin’ man to man or whether we’re talking son to son.
‘Cause he’s my best friend.
Yes, he’s my best friend…
