Michael Jackson Song Ben Lyrics & Youtube Video

michael-jackson-song-ben-lyrics-youtube-video“Ben” is a song written and composed by Walter Scharf and Don Black and recorded by Michael Jackson for the Motown label in 1972. The theme song of the 1972 horror film Ben; it is a melancholy ballad to the film’s title character, a killer rat – a choice critics have noted as singularly odd. It was initially released as a single, and later appeared as the title track to Ben, Jackson’s second solo album. The song was Jackson’s first number-one hit as a solo artist on the American pop charts, and also performed well overseas, reaching number one in Australia and number seven in the United Kingdom. Cover versions were later recorded by Marti Webb and Akon, and the original featured in the 2003 film Willard, a remake of the film to which Ben was a sequel.

Michael Jackson Song Ben Lyrics


Ben
Michael Jackson

Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own
I’ll never be alone
And you my friend will see
You’ve got a friend in me
(You’ve got a friend in me)

Ben, you’re always running here and there
(Here and there)
You feel you’re not wanted anywhere
(Anywhere)
If you ever look behind
And don’t like what you find
There’s something you should know
You’ve got a place to go
(You’ve got a place to go)

I used to say, “I” and “me”
Now it’s “us”, now it’s “we”
(I used to say, “I” and “me”)
(Now it’s “us”, now it’s “we”)

Ben, most people would turn you away
I don’t listen to a word they say
They don’t see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I’m sure they’d think again
If they had a friend like Ben
(A friend) Like Ben
(Like Ben) Like Ben
