Lyrics

Sitting quietly in a corner, doesn't quite know what to say
All the kids seem so much older, more mature in every way

He's a new boy in a new school
He's a new boy come to town
Wants to make a friend or two
Friends who he knows won't let him down

Sitting quietly in the kitchen, teenage years are never fun
Wants to leave and go back homeward now the party has begun

He's a new boy in a new house
He's a new boy come to town
Wants to make a friend or two
Friends who he knows won't let him down

Sitting quietly in the workplace, doesn't know what he should do
Everybody seems so busy, there's no time to talk things through

He's a new man at the office
He's a new man come to town
Wants to make a friend or two
Friends who he knows won't let him down

A friend, a friend, he only wants to make a friend
A friend, a friend, he only wants to make a friend

Sitting quietly in his new home, doesn't know a soul around
They're just staring out the window, old and grey without a sound

He's an old man at the strange house
He's an old man come to town
Wants to make a friend or two
Friends who he knows won't let him down

A friend, a friend, he only wants to make a friend
A friend, a friend, he only wants to make a friend
