My Own Best Friend
The Original Broadway Production
Chicago the Musical - My Own Best Friend Lyrics


ROXIE
One thing I know

VELMA
One thing I know

ROXIE
And I've always known

VELMA
And I've always known

ROXIE
I am my own

VELMA
I am my own

ROXIE & Velma:
Best friend

ROXIE
Baby's alive

VELMA
Baby's alive

ROXIE
But baby's alone

VELMA
But baby's alone

ROXIE
And baby's her own

VELMA
And baby's her own

ROXIE & VELMA
Best friend
Many's the guy
Who told me he cares
But they were scratchin' my back
'Cause I was scratchin' theirs

ROXIE
And trusting to luck

VELMA
And trusting to luck

ROXIE
That's only for fools

VELMA
Only for fools

ROXIE
I play in a game

VELMA
I play in a game

ROXIE & VELMA
Where I make the rules
And rule number one
From here to the end
Is 'I am my own best friend'

Three musketees
Who never say die
Are standing here this minute

VELMA
Me

ROXIE
Me

VELMA
Myself

ROXIE
Myself

VELMA
And I!

ROXIE
And I!

VELMA & ROXIE
If life is a school
I'll pass every test
If life is a game
I'll play it the best
'Cause I won't give in
and I'll never bend
and I am my own best friend!
