Dear Old Pals
I like my share of pleasure,
And I'll have it where I can,
I love a loving woman, and
Respect an honest man;
I like to find true friendship in
The life that's rolling by,
And such is always found between,
My old Pal Tom and I.
We're dear old pals, jolly old pals,
Clinging together in all sorts of weather,
Dear old pals, jolly old pals,
Give me the friendship of dear old pals.
