VP_001373 Verse 1I was a pal to my daddy, And dad was a pal to me This is the story he told me one day, And it lingers through my memory Chorus 1For ev'ry boy who's on the level, There's a girl who's just the same When you gamble with a heart Remember from the start, It always pays to play an honest game Ev'ry one was meant for someone And they'll meet that someone sometime, somewhere For ev'ry boy who's on the level There's a girl who's on the square For ev'ry square Verse 2Each one was meant to be happy To have and to hold and love Follow the straight road and keep to the right, And abide in our maker above
