Verse 1:
                A                                      Gbm
I built a friend with three pieces of plastic and a pen,
                                  D
I made him on the table in the den,
                                      A
I gave him my old cellphone for a head,
          E
For a head.
       A
And we spent holidays in my house, 
        Gbm
And we left presents in the stocking,
          D                                               A
And we bought bolts and things and strings and a new watch,
                  E
That's what he got.
 
Chorus:
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We knew we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.
 
Verse 2:
        A
Then I left for college in September
        Gbm
And we wept cause we can't be together
      D                                      A
So I kept pictures to remember my old friend,
          E
My old friend.
        A
Then I met this girl at graduation
        Gbm
And forget my oldest creation
       D
And I guess I'll see him next vacation
        A               E
Send my best, I send my best
 
Chorus:
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We knew we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.
 
Verse 3:
          A                                  Gbm
I came home to find him on the table with a note
                                 D
Scribbled out in pencil and he wrote
                                  A
That he just wasn't stable all alone,
       E
All alone.
          A                                       Gbm
Next to him, an empty glass of water that he spilled
                          D
All over the body that I built,
                                      A
It fizzled and it popped and then it killed,
               E
And then it killed.
 
Chorus:
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We thought we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.
           A
I built a friend.
