What a friend you are
For seeing it through with me, with me
What a friend indeed
And you made me strong and free, and free
When I needed you, you were there
When the luck was bad
You were there
What a special friend
You said you'd stay and here you are

Before I knew I needed you, you came through
When bad luck was all I had and no one cared

Just the kind who'll never bend or break away
Here you are, what a special friend you are
