I've got this friend
I don't think you know him
He's not much for words

If the right one came along
Oh, 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 all she's got to give

Oh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Oh, 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

Oh
Oh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Oh, (I've got this friend) if the right one came
If the right one came along
Oh, (I've got this friend)
If the right one came, along
