I’d Like To Be A Friend
Lyrics: William Elliott
Music: William Elliott

I’d like to be a friend to ev’ryone I meet
To stand inside your world for a moment
I’d like to be the door that opens on your street
That has the look of welcome home upon it

I’d like to be the room you remember
The room that kept you warm in December

I’d like to be the song you sing and sing again
And still you like to hum when you come to the end
And if I could choose to be any one thing that I see
Then I’d simply like to be a friend.
