IT'S NICE TO HAVE A FRIEND
 
div
 
Mary, a simple dairy maid, worked on a farm and cream she made
Mary one day grew tired of simple life so came to town
In her excitement she got lost, but a policeman came her way
He must have done his duty for as soon as they met next day
To Robert shyly then she said, 'When maidens lose their way like me.

Chorus: Oh it's nice to have a friend like you
So nice to have a friend like you
Mother always said so careful I should be
But I like you and you like me
I was lost in London Town
And you led me in the Park, that's right
Do you think that you could be
As nicely nice to me
If I lose my way tonight.'


Mary was making rather free, so was the policeman too, and she
Told him about her farm yard and the lovely calves she'd got
Robert who never did agree in doing things by halves
Said he'd like to see them all especially Mary's calves
Said she, 'How kind you seem to be, you take such interest in me.'

Chorus: 'Oh it's nice to have a friend like you
So nice to have a friend like you
Mother always said so careful I should be
But I like you and you like me
I was lost in London Town
And you led me in the Park, that's right
Will you promise to be true
And let me blow your whistle too
If I lose my way tonight.'


Chorus: 'Oh it's nice to have a friend like you
So nice to have a friend like you
Mother always said so careful I should be
But I like you and you like me
I was lost in London Town
And you led me in the Park, that's right
If you've got another case
Send the Sergeant in your place
If I lose my way tonight.'
