Björn re-writes ABBA lyrics for 13-year old

Faryl Smith records ABBA favourite

Faryl Smith’s debut CD

“It was about divorce,” the teenager said. “They didn’t think it was appropriate for me to sing about that, so Björn changed the lyrics so it’s about friendship.”

The song? The Way Old Friends Do.

Expectations are high for her self-titled debut. The record has led the pre-sale charts on, 80 000 copies have been shipped to retailers in advance of going on sale.

Smith’s album features 12 tracks including Ave Maria, the song that catapulted her to stardom when she sang it on Britain’s Got Talent.

With thanks to Ian Jones.
