With Apologies To The Jackson 5

Ben
by:  Mike Kerns (with Kerns singing the parts of Jackie, Tito, Jermain, and Marlon in parentheses)

Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
I interviewed you on the phone
I'll never be alone
And, my friend, number forty-three
You've got a friend in me
(You've got a friend in me)

Ben, you should be running here and there
That hurt ankle means you won't be running anywhere
If you ever want to get away and don't have a place to stay
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")

The SEC made you a tough fighter
Now you're my little Auburn Tiger
The others don't see you as I do
A Pro Bowler in a year or two
I'm sure they'd like a mulligan
But I just like a friend like Ben

(A friend) like Ben

(A friend) like Ben
