Hey buddy, wanna talk to you
I got a friend in need, a friend indeed
I hear you got a few friends too
Living up the stairs, sell their wears
And they don't care, 'cause they don't know that
Oooh he's very lovely
Oooh he's lost his one and only
Woman that he's ever had
It sure is bad, can you make him glad?
Hey mister can you help him out
Can you put him straight, before it gets to late
And show what it's all about
Hey mister where you got the dope?
Which will it be, to pay the fee?
I guess that you can see from me
So I'll be straight with you, I'll tell the truth
A friend in need is just really me
