My Imaginary Friend

Original version (2:43)

Would you like to meet my little friend?
Don’t try to shake his hand, he’s just pretend.
His name is Benjamin - that’s his name -
My Mamma says: “you’re insane.
Boy you really are the end, Really are the end.
You and your imaginary friend.” Imaginary.

Daddy drives the mobile library.
Papa.
He works peripatetically.
That’s right.
He doesn’t get much time to play with us,
So we just read and make up stuff.
And it drives him round the bend, Drives him round the bend.
Me and my imaginary friend. Imaginary.

One day we’re gonna play hide and seek
And Ben will be up the creek,
Never to be seen again. To be seen again.
He’ll disappear the day that childhood ends Day that childhood ends.
And reality descends. Reality descends.
I’ll never forget you, my imaginary friend.
