My Buddy
Gus Kahn (w), Walter Donaldson (m)
Life is a book that we study
Some of its leaves bring a sigh
There it was written by a buddy
That we must part, you and I.
Nights are long since you went away
I think about you all through the day
My buddy, my buddy
Nobody quite so true
Miss your voice, the touch of your hand
Just long to know that you understand
My buddy, my buddy
Your buddy misses you.
Buddies through all the gay days,
Buddies when something went wrong;
I wait alone through the gray days,
Missing your smile and your song.
