  • I see you looking at me
    I know we're from different sides of town
    You've never traveled
    And I've been all around
    Hey
    Let me take your hand
    Hey hey yeah
    From where I stand
    You're in need of a friend
    So let the good times roll
    Let the good times roll

    I see something in you
    I see it, how come they don't
    You're a good person
    And they'll come around
    Hey let me take your hand
    Hey hey yeah yeah
    I can see you change
    You're in need of a friend
    So let the good times roll
    Let the good times roll
    Let the good times roll
    Let the good times roll

    Everybody says
    Don't hang around with Liza
    She's from the wrong side of town
    The part where folks live on welfare
    The part where you find needles on the ground
    It's the side where the kids hang out in gangs
    And wear the hoodies
    And the masks
    To hide their face
    If you make friends with a girl like that
    Well it's a big disgrace

    Everybody say
    This that
    This that
    This that
    This that

    Hey Liza
    I'd like a friend like you
    Hey Liza
    I think you're kind of cute
    Hey Liza
    I'm gonna make up my own mind
    I'm gonna make up my own mind

    I see you looking at me
    I know we're from different sides of town
    You've never traveled
    And I've been all around
    Hey Liza
    Let me take your hand
    Hey hey yeah yeah
    Yeah yeah yeah
    From where I stand
    You're in need of a friend
    So let the good times roll
    Let the good times roll
    Let the good times roll
