Old Pal of Yesterday
I was thinking tonight of you, old pal,
And wishing that you were here.
I was dreaming of the time and the days gone by, When you filled my heart with cheer,
I remember the time when, all alone,
Wessang "Sweet Adeline",
No other face
Can take your place
In my heart, old pal of mine.
The old pals are always the best, you see,
New faces you will find ever day,
But they can't take the place, or ever be Like the old pals of yesterday.
I'm wondering just where you are tonight And if you ever think of me,
It would make my weary heart so light, Sweetheart, your face again to see,
But nothing in my share of life, I find, Nothing goes right, it seems,
Still you will always be a pal of mine, Though it may be only in dreams.
