My Buddy

My Buddy  (1922) 
by Walter Donaldson (music) and Gus Kahn (lyrics)


Sheet music cover
Life is a book that we study
Some of its leaves bring a sigh
There it was written my Buddy
That we must part you and I


Nights are long since you went away
I think about you all thru the day
My Buddy, my Buddy
No Buddy 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 thru all of the gay days
Buddies when something went wrong
I wait alone thru the gray days
Missing your smile and your song
