Be a friend. You don’t need money;Just a disposition sunny;Just the wish to help another.Get along some way or other.Just a kindly hand extended Out to one who’s unbefriended ;Just the will to give or lend,This will make you someone’s friend.
Be a friend. You don’t need glory.Friendship is a simple story. Pass by trifling errors blindly ,Gaze on honest effort kindly, Cheer the youth who’s bravely trying ,Pity him who’s sadly sighing; Just a little labor spent on the duties of a friend.
Be a friend. The pay is bigger(Though not written by a figure)Than is earned by people clever In what’s merely self-endeavor.You’ll have friends instead of neighbors,.For the profits of your labors; You’ll be richer in the end,Than a prince, if you’re a friend.
