Lyrics

Back when we met each other
First we didn’t know
If we would be friends
Then, we spent time together
And we figured out
That we would be friends

We’d play out at recess
And sometimes see each other
At the grocery store
So we bought some big cheese
And some root beer floats
And chocolate and much more

Times are good with friends
Have good times with them
Times are good with friends
Good times

Times are good with friends
Have good times with them
Times are good with friends
Good times

We went to fireworks
And a haunted house
On Independence Day
Then we went to Zoom Flume
And Pine Grove Horse Ranch
For my friend’s birthday
Yeah!
Hurray!

We have a lot of fun
And take care of each other
Oh so constantly
I’m so thankful for you
You’re thankful for me
We’re thankful for we

Times are good with friends
Have good times with them
Times are good with friends
Good times

Times are good with friends
Have good times with them
Times are good with friends
Good times
