I’ve got a little friend; he lives in a jar in my office.
He watches while I work but he never says a sound to me.
Hours upon hours I’m workin’ ‘til my eyes grow weary.
He’s the only thing I see when I glance up from my machine.

My friends say I’m a mess,
But he leads me from a life of loneliness,
Oh Barney the barnacle.

One night I’m working late; the streetlight is streaming through the window.
There’s music driftin’ in from a party roarin’ on down the road.
Nobody’s around, so I’d like to take a rest on my keyboard.
Barney gives a little wink before I slip off in a dream.

“I watch you waste away, my friend,” the barnacle said to me.
“You’re slavin’ all your days away for a rich man who goes free.
There’s more to life than this, my friend, and here’s what you should do.
If I had arms and legs like you, you know I’d do it too…

Move your feet to the rhythm of the beat!”
