Michael Jackson Ben Lyrics

Last updated: 06/30/2014 10:15:18 PM

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
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

Ben...beautiful voice and lyrics | Reviewer: Indiana | 6/29/14

I remember first reading it was a song about his rat and being in awe... Because it showed his heart: compassionate, generous and has the empathetic nature. I loooooove this song, he sang it so well, the lyrics and emotion well delivered. I recently took time to really listen to it, and I just got this deep understanding that I find hard to put in words.
I can relate to the rat, the feelings of being rejected, feeling lonely, having those down moments.... Michael made it easy to relate to him through his lyrics that's what I really love.
I've always been a fan, and it will be like that forever...regardless of what people say about him.

Michael, thank you for loving your fans unconditionally, and I know you're in a much better place.

I love you always and forever Michael!

perfection | Reviewer: Mona Taylor | 10/12/12

the reason why I love Ben is because the song was in just about a rat it was about a true friendship and you can think of the rat true enough but think about a friend who you were that close to.

Interesting Movie Theme Song | Reviewer: Keith | 10/7/11

I like the song, particularly considering it is the theme song to the movie "Ben", a sequel to the movie "Willard" about a young man (Willard) who befriends two rats (named Socrates and Ben). Willard then sets about correcting the wrongs he has suffered by having the rats kill his enemies. The sequel finds Ben finding another lonely boy and continuing killing.

Reading the words, you can tell MJ is referring to a rat.

pets | Reviewer: Melissa | 1/12/10

i had a dog called Ben and he got put down and this song reminds me of him! And all other animals that are being neglected in this world because of what they look like or their size or whatever! Michael showed us that everyone is the same, even animals!

So beautiful, so sad. | Reviewer: Carol R. | 6/30/09

It's been years since I heard this song and I always knew it to be about a rat, but when I heard it again a few days ago, I heard simply, Michael. The souful voice with which he sang this song took simple words and created something much, much more than appeared on surface. Rest in peace Michael. May you find what you never found here in this world.

my BEN | Reviewer: patty | 6/29/09

Much more... | Reviewer: MonicaWarrington | 6/26/09

This song is much more than what it is attached to. We have to have friends in order to continue. No one should judge who you chose as your friend(s) as long as you do positive things together/for each other.
