I'm thinking of you tonight old pal
And wishing that you were here
I'm dreaming of the times and the days gone by
When you filled my heart with cheer.
I remember the night when all alone
We sang Sweet Adeline
No other face can take your place
In my heart old pal of mine.

Chorus
The old pals are always the best you see
New Friends you can find every day
But they can't fill the places or ever be
Like the old pals of yesterday.

I'm wondering 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 in this checkered life I find
Nothing comes right it seems
Still you'll always be a pal of mine
Though it may be only in dreams.

chorus
