Friends Like These
Copyright George Papavgeris, May 2001

All last week I worked and toiled
Did my best without respite
Now I've put all that behind me
All my troubles out of sight
I've been waiting since last Monday
Just to be with you tonight
Just to join my voice with yours and
Sing a song with all our might

Sing of joys and sing of sorrows
Sing of love and bloody wars
As we sing we're all transported
Down some mine or to distant shores
Some sing high and some sing low, and
Some sing sensitive and sweet
But when we all join in chorus
They can hear us down the street
Landlord, bring another round now
Line them up in twos and threes
Come again when these are empty
Till we buckle at the knees
Let our ears be filled with music
Just as we are filled with ale
May this evening never end, and
May our voices never fail

And one day if we should part and
We should meet no more again
Monday nights let's raise our glasses
To the health of absent friends
And if angels take you with them
And the Devil claims my soul,
We'll still harmonise together,
You above and me below

CHORUS
Who needs fame and who needs fortune
And who needs a life of ease
I'm the richest in the country
When I'm blessed with friends like these
