BEST FRIEND

An old man on his death bed
whispered to me;
you are the master
of your destiny

A diamond is a diamond,
a stone a stone,
but a man's not all good nor all bad

Call them as you see them
you'll stand alone
You're the best friend that you ever had,
oh yeah,
you're the best friend that you ever had

So laugh when it's time to laugh,
cry when it's time to cry
Live while it's time to live,
you'll die when it's time to die

Then he closed his eyes
and left me alone
My old friends death
brought his wisdom home

A diamond is a diamond,
a stone a stone,
but a man's not all good nor all bad

Call them as you see them
you'll stand alone
You're the best friend that you ever had,
oh yeah,
you're the best friend that you ever had

So laugh when it's time to laugh,
cry when it's time to cry
Live while it's time to live,
you'll die when it's time to die
