FRIEND LIKE ME (as recorded by Michelle Creber)

Well Ali Baba had them forty thieves

Scheherazade had a thousand tales

But mister you in luck 'cause up your sleeve

You got a brand of magic never fails


You got some power in your corner now

Some heavy ammunition in your camp

You got some punch, pizazz, yahoo and how

See all you gotta do is rub that lamp


And I'll say, Mister Aladdin, sir, what will your pleasure be?

Let me take your order, jot it down

You ain't never had a friend like me, no, no, no

Life is your restaurant, and I'm your maitre d'

C'mon whisper what it is you want

You ain't never had a friend like me


Yes sir we pride ourselves on service

You're the boss, the king, the shah

Say what you wish, it's yours, true dish

How 'bout a little more baklava


Have some of column A, try all of column B

I'm in the mood to help you, dude

You ain't never had a friend like me


Wa-ah-ah, oh my

Wa-ah-ah, no no no

Wa-ah-ah, na na na

Woah oh oh oh oh


Can your friends do this

Can your friends do that

Can your friends pull this out of their little hat


Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three

I'm on the job, you big nabob

You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend

You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend

You ain't never… had a… friend like me, like me, like me

You ain't never had a friend like me
