Song lyrics
Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own
I'll never be alone
And you my friend will see
You've got a friend in me
(You've got a friend in me)

Ben, you're always running here and there
(Here and there)
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
If you ever look behind
And don't like what you find
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")

Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Ben
(A friend)
Like Ben
(Like Ben)
Like Ben

* offtopic :
The last person who posted a reply is RIGHT. The movie that this song was in (or whatever you guys are saying) is called "Willard" and 'Willard' is a friend of a rat named "Ben". I know this 'cause the movie is about Willard and rats.

I LOVE this song!

The song is about his own pet rat, no movie, it is a sweet song, but the rat factor kinda makes it a little weird.

If anyone knew anything about the 70s, you would know what this is about. He recorded this song for the movie "Ben", about a boy who befriends a mouse named Ben. So yeah, techincally its about a mouse.
