Unfriended by Garrison Keillor / Prairie Home Companion

I’ve been unwanted before it’s true
And uninvited a time or two
Today I’m feeling unusually blue
I’ve been unfriended by you

The hourly updates on your activities
Your joys, your pain, your sensitivities
All of the parties you have attended
No, I’ve been unfriended

I had twenty-nine friends, an old high school buddy,
A couple of guys from Adult Bible Study,
Neighbors, and cousins, a high school classmate,
And then one morning I had sixty-eight.

The list of your friends: 3000 and growing
Three thousand folks who think you’re worth knowing
You’re a popular person, you don’t need me
You’ve got Carla and Nicholas Sarkozy

Unfriended, where can I go?
Back to the people I used to know.
The women at church, the guys at the bar,
They could try to unfriend me but I know where they are.

I offered you friendship when I saw you online
I thought you’d become a true friend of mine
You posted a comment, I thought we were close
But now I am toast.

I feel like I’m back in my high school cafeteria
And I get the cold shoulder and I’m sent to Siberia
And no one will talk to me, nobody, none,
I once was befriended but now I am Un.

How could you do it, just delete my name?
I’m not a left-winger, nor an old flame,
I’m not a stalker and you’re not a star,
But now I’ll expose you for the jerk that you are.

You know it’s inevitable that we will meet
In real time on an actual street
I’ll be so cool — OMG — how sweet.
And I’ll look away as I press delete.

Unfriended
Unfriended, boogers on you
You and all the friends you knew
Have just been unfriended too

A Friend Like You

A Friend Like You

by Ruthie Foster

When I need someone
To tell my troubles to
You’re the first one
Who comes to my mind
When there’s nowhere to run
You’re the one i turn to
Lord knows a friend like you is hard to find

A friend like you everyone should have
A friend like you we all need
All I wanna do is be a friend to you
The way you are a friend to me

When I’m lost out in the dark
You’re the bright light shining through
You’re my anchor, my hope, my new day
Through the stormy nights ahead
I’ll be counting on you
To keep me strong come what may

A friend like you everyone should have
A friend like you we all need
All I wanna do is be a friend to you
The way you are a friend to me

Joyful is my soul every time I think of you
Sweet music is the gift you bring
Thank you for the songs
Soaring in my heart
Your love makes me sing

Oh, a friend like you everyone should have
A friend like you we all need
All I wanna do is be a friend to you
The way you are a friend to me
I wanna be a friend like you.

Arthur Theme Song

Everyday when you’re walking down the street, everybody that you meet
Has an original point of view
And I say HEY! what a wonderful kind of day.
Where you can learn to work and play
And get along with each other

You got to listen to your heart
Listen to the beat
Listen to the rhythm, the rhythm of the street
Open up your eyes, open up your ears
Get together and make things better by working together
It’s a simple message and it comes from the heart
Believe in youself (echo: believe in yourself)
Well thats the place to start (to start)

And I say HEY! what a wonderful kind of day
Where you learn to work and play
And get along with each other
-Repeat Chorus-

You’ve Got A Friend In Me by Randy Newman

You’ve Got A Friend In Me

by Randy Newman

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you’re miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
Just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got troubles, well I’ve got ’em too
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together and we see it through
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
Maybe
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
It’s me and you
And as the years go by
Boys, our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see
It’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Courage by Bob Blue

Courage

by Bob Blue

A small thing once happened at school
That brought up a question for me,
And somehow it brought me to see
The price that I pay to be cool.

Diane is a girl that I know.
She’s strange, like she doesn’t belong.
I don’t mean to say that that’s wrong.
We don’t like to be with her, though.

And so, when we all made a plan
To have this big party at Sue’s,
Most kids in the school got the news,
But no one invited Diane.

The thing about Taft Junior High
Is, secrets don’t last very long.
I acted like nothing was wrong
When I saw Diane start to cry.

I know you may think that I’m cruel.
It doesn’t make me very proud.
I just went along with the crowd.
It’s sad, but you have to in school.

You can’t pick the friends you prefer.
You fit in as well as you can.
I couldn’t be friends with Diane,
‘Cause then they would treat me like her.

In one class at Taft Junior High,
We study what people have done
With gas chamber, bomber, and gun
In Auschwitz, Japan, and My Lai.

I don’t understand all I learn.
Sometimes I just sit there and cry.
The whole world stood idly by
To watch as the innocent burn.

Like robots obeying some rule.
Atrocities done by the mob.
All innocent, doing their job.
And what was it for? Was it cool?

The world was aware of this Hell,
But how many cried out in shame?
What heroes, and who was to blame?
A story that no one dared tell.

I promise to do what I can
To not let it happen again.
To care for all women and men.
I’ll start by inviting Diane.Courage_Bob_Blue

Lean On Me by Bill Withers

Lean On Me

by Bill Withers

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don’t let show

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can’t carry
I’m right up the road
I’ll share your load
If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’d understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
Till I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Lean on me…

True Friend by Miley Cyrus

We sign our cards and letters BFF
You’ve got a million ways to make me laugh
You’re lookin’ out for me, you’ve got my back
So good to have you around

You know the secrets I could never tell
And when I’m quiet you break through my shell
Don’t feel the need to do a rebel yell
‘Cause you keep my feet on the ground

You’re a true friend
You’re here till the end
You pull me aside when something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
‘Til it’s alright again
You’re a true friend

You don’t get angry when I change the plans
Somehow you’re never out of second chances
Won’t say “I told you” when I’m wrong again
I’m so lucky that I’ve found

A true friend
You’re here till the end
You pull me aside when something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
‘Til it’s alright again

True friends will go to the ends of the earth
Till they find the things you need
Friends hang on through the ups and the downs
Cause they’ve got someone to believe in

A true friend
You’re here till the end
You pull me aside when something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
No need to pretend
You’re a true friend

You’re a true friend
You’re here till the end
You pull me aside when something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
‘Til it’s alright again
You’re a true friend

You’re a true friend
You’re a true friend

You’ve Got a Friend

You’ve_Got a_Friend

by Carole King, performed by James Taylor

When your down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name,
And you know where ever I am
I’ll come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring , summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You’ve got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.

You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, Spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And I’ll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They’ll hurt you and desert you.
Well they’ll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don’t you let them.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.

Oh babe, don’t you know that,
Winter Spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you’ve got to do is call.
Lord, I’ll be there, yes I will.
You’ve got a friend.
You’ve got a friend.

Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
You’ve got a friend.
