Friend at First Sight

My father took me for a ride,

Along the long, long Marine Drive,


And at a signal Red Light,

A little girl came to our side.


Tap-tap, tap-tap

She knocked at our door.


Pressing her nose to the glass,

A few coins she asked for


Her torn clothes, her eyes faraway,

but I saw a friend with whom, I could play.


Mama gave her a toffee

the light turned green


I waved at her

And she smiled at me


The car moved away

And so did she


Our eyes met

And so did we


Now when we pass that traffic light,

I look for my,


friend at first sight
