I Wish I Had A Friend To Play With Me

sung by Bert (Frank Oz)

I got this pain that
I just can't deal with
How I wish I had somebody
To go and eat oatmeal with
Oh gee, I really need a friend to play with me

I'd give him friendship and affection
I'd even let him come and see my paper clip collection
Oh gee, I sure could use a friend to play with me

In line he'd gladly stand
To watch a marching band
Or buy some saddle shoes (laugh)
He'd worship argyle socks
Collect them by the box
He'd help me chase these blues
My style would please him
More than a smidgeon
He'd say, "It's really nifty, Bert
The way you dance the pigeon!"

Oh gee, I gotta find a friend to play with me
Won't somebody hear my plea?
Wanna end this misery
I wish I had a friend to play with me
