"Side by Side by Side"

[BOBBIE]
I mean when you've got friends like mine...
I mean, when you've got friends like mine

Isn't it warm?
Isn't it rosy?
Side by side...

[SARAH, spoken]
She's such a sweetheart
[BOBBIE]
...by side
Isn't she a sweetheart?

[BOBBIE]
Ports in a storm
Comfy and cozy
Side by side...

[PETER, spoken]
She never loses her cool
[BOBBIE]
...by side
[HARRY, spoken]
I envy that

[BOBBIE]
Everything shines
How sweet!
Side by side...

[SUSAN, spoken]
We're just so fond of her

[BOBBIE]
...by side
Parallel lines
Who meet

[FRIENDS]
Love her!
Can't get enough of her!

[BOBBIE]
Everyone winks
Nobody's nosy
Side by side...

[JOANNE, spoken]
She feels exactly the way I do...

[BOBBIE]
...by side

[JOANNE, spoken]
...about everything

[BOBBIE]
You bring the drinks
And I'll bring the posy-
Side by side...

[LARRY, spoken]
She's always there when you need her

[BOBBIE]
...by side

[DAVID, spoken]
That's class

[BOBBIE]
One is lonely and two is boring
Think what you can keep ignoring
Side...

[JAMIE, spoken]
She's my best friend...

[BOBBIE]
...by side...

[JAMIE, spoken]
...second-best!

[BOBBIE]
...by side

[FRIENDS]
How and we chitter
Plus a perfect babysitter!

Year after year
Older and older...

[JENNY, spoken]
It's amazing. We've gotten older every year and she seems to stay exactly the same

[FRIENDS]
Sharing a tear
Lending a shoulder

[DAVID, spoken]
You know what comes to my mind when I see her? The Chrysler building. Isn't that weird?

[FRIENDS]
Always in fun?
No strain

[JOANNE, spoken]
Sometimes I catch her looking and looking- I just look right back

[FRIENDS]
Permanent sun
No rain
We're so crazy, she's so sane
Everyone blends
Like a good whiskey

[PAUL, spoken]
A person like Bobbie doesn't have the good things and she doesn't have the bad things, but she doesn't have the good things

[FRIENDS]
Intimate friends
But nothing that's risky

[HARRY, spoken]
Let me make her a drink. She's the only person I know I feel should drink more

[BOBBIE]
One's impossible, two is dreary
Three is company, safe and cheery

[ALL]
Side...

[SARAH, spoken]
She always looks like she's keeping score

[ALL]
...by side...

[SARAH, spoken]
Who's winning, Bobbie?

[ALL]
By side

[BOBBIE]
Here is the church
Here is the steeple
Open the doors
And see all the crazy, married people

[FRIENDS]
What would we do without you?
How would we ever get through?
Who would I complain to for hours?
Who'd bring me the flowers
When I have the flu?

Who'd finish yesterday's stew?
Who'd take the kids to the zoo?
Who is so cool, and who is so deep
And who would keep her company when I want to sleep?
How would we ever get through?
What would we do without you?

What would we do without you?
How would we ever get through?
Should there be some marital tension
It's her intervention that starts us anew
Who could we open up to
Secrets we keep from guess who?
Who is so safe, and who is so sound?
You never need an analyst with Bobbie around!
How would we ever get through?
What would we do without you?

What would we do without you?
How would we ever get through?
Who sends anniversary wishes?
Who helps with the dishes
And never says boo?
Who changes subjects on cue?
Who cheers us up when we're blue?
Who is a flirt, but never a threat
Reminds us of our birthdays which we always forget?
How would we ever get through?
What would we do without you?

What would we do without you?
How would we ever get -
How would we ever get -
How would we ever get -
How would we ever get - through?
What would we do without you?

[BOBBIE]
Just what you usually do

[FRIENDS]
Right!
You who sit with us
You who share with us
You who fit with us
You who bear with us
You-hoo, you-hoo
You-hoo, you-hoo...

[BOBBIE]
Okay now! Everybody!

[ALL]
Isn't it warm?
Isn't it rosy?
Side by side!
Ports in a storm
Comfy and cozy
Side by side!
Everything shines
How sweet
Side by side!
Parallel lines
Who meet
Side by side!
Year after year
Older and older
Side by side!
Sharing a tear
And lending a shoulder
Side by side!
Two's impossible, two is gloomy
Give another number to me
Side by side by side by side
By side by side by side by side
By side by side by side by side
By side by side!
