Video: Oh My My/Friends ~ Bette Midler ~ 1976

FriendsOh My My!”

And I am all alone.
There is no one here beside me.
And my problems have all gone.
There is no one to deride me.

Ah, But you got to have friends!
The feeling’s oh so strong.
You got to have friends,
Mmm, To make that day last long.

Somethin’ came and took them away.
And from the dusk ’til the dawn
Here is where I’ll stay.
I got to stay, Woo!


She called up the doctor to see what’s the matter.
He said, “Come on over.” Read More
