lyrics

He's got a Stephen King beginning
But everyone wants to know
Where's the Hollywood Ending
For Anthony Cardno?

Some folks call him Anthony
Some folks call him Talekyn
Call him whatever you want
I'll just call him my friend

He's a writer, an actor and a playwright too
Sneakers in the Sand was about a bloody shoe
He's a role playing gamer extraordinaire
And on top of all that, he's got a great head of hair

He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone
He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone

He seems to have found the fountain of youth
He looks just like he did in 1982
He travels for his job, and that's just great
'Cause he's got friends in all 50 states

He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone
He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone

I got my copy of The Firflake
Signed by Anthony, the man
When it comes to the music of The Dalliance
He's their number one fan

He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone
He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone
He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone
He's the best man that I've ever known
If Anthony's your friend, then you're never alone
