Homely Friend

From the album Draw The Line Buy Now


On sunny days I’m feelin’ great

I’m walkin’ tall and fine

And all the folks who see me

Wanna be a friend of mine

But when I’m feelin’ low down

And homely as a hound

When I need my sunny friends

There ain’t no one around


Cho: I’m lonely for a homely friend to

     keep me company

I’m lonely for a homely friend who feels

     like home to me!


A homely friend’s the only friend

Who sticks through thick and thin

A friend who knows that friendship goes

Deeper than the skin!

Instrumental Break


Now everybody feels homely

When they’re feelin’ low

And everybody acts cool

So no one will know

And you can fool your sunny friends

But you can’t fool me

Cause just like you, I’m scared of bein’

Left alone, y’see?! So,


Cho: C’mon over, you homely friend and

     keep me company

I’m lonely for you, my homely friend, cause you

     feel like home to me!


Cute or ugly, dumb or smart,

Old or fat or thin,

Long as you’ve got lots of heart

You’ll be my homely friend
