Good morning Mary Ann

And how are you upon this bright

And sunny morning

I hear your brother Ted

Got caught for speeding

But was let off with a warning

I hope he's learnt his lesson

And the next time he goes out will drive with care

It doesn't pay to drive too fast

All it does is make your life last shorter



I know you won't believe this

But it happens to be true

I am a loner

My only real companion is dog I'm very fond of

His name's Homer

He follows me wherever I go

And of course I do my best to feed him

It's not the easiest of tasks

When you consider unlike cats

They're broader



Do what you want to within reason

But remember take your time

Nothing stops for those

Who can't afford to wait

The best advice that I can give you

Is to hold on to your head

And as long as you are good and kind

You'll always be a friend of mine

And it's true to say that a good friend is hard to find

But I'd like to think that you are

A friend of mine



Good morning Sarah Jane

And how are you today

Tell me is that your mother

She looks a lot like you

Though come to think of it

You look like one another

It's funny how with likenesses

Most people have a difference of opinion

They said that I was like my dad

Now they say that I'm just like his daughter



Do what you want to within reason

But remember take your time

Nothing stops for those

Who can't afford to wait

The best advice that I can give you

Is to hold on to your head

And as long as you are good and kind

You'll always be a friend of mine



You'll always be a friend of mine

As long as you are good and kind

You'll always be a friend of mine

A friend in need is a friend indeed

You'll always be a friend of mine
