VP_011067 Verse 1Boys as a rule When they're going to school are considered unruly and bad. They pull the curls of the nice little girls For that is the way of a lad. But I knew a sunny face Tousled hair tot Who always was known as the best of the lot. Chorus 1Buddy he was evry body's Buddy from the time he was a kid. He'd get the coal, chop the wood, He'd even run the erands for the neighborhood. Buddy, he would help the kids to study, he was ev'ry body's friend. One day the angels in the heavens above. Found out they needed some one up there to love They called for Buddy, our Buddy I wish they'd send him home again. Verse 2Never would fight Till he knew he was right but he always would stick to the end. Wasn't stuck up ev'ry home less young pup Could tell that this boy was their friend. A good natured comrade a regular boy In sunshine or rain just a bundle of joy.
