Friends" is a song written by Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson and Al Jardine for the American rock band The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1968 album Friends. It was also released as a single, with "Little Bird" as the B-side. The single peaked at in the United States and in the United Kingdom. The song was recorded on March 13, 1968.
The LP was named for being their 20th overall album release. Much of it consists of outtakes from earlier albums.
The irony was that Smile had collapsed, in part, because some of the Beach Boys felt that Wilson's increasingly avant-garde leanings would lose their pop audience; yet by the time of Friends, the Beach Boys had done a pretty good job of losing most of their audience by retreating to a less experimental, more group-based approach.

Produced by The Beach Boys. Little bird up in a tree Looked down and sang a song to me Of how it began. Na na na na. The trout in the shiny brook Gave a worm another look And told me not to worry About my life. Tree in my own backyard Stands all alone Bears fruit for me And it tastes so good. Where's my pretty bird? He must have flown away If I keep singing He'll come back someday
