HATTIE (Ethel Merman): I get awful gloomy JERRY (Joan Carroll): You mean, ver gloomy HATTIE: Very gloomy, now and then, in this town 'Cause it's always so hard To find a real pard Who'll play in your yard When you're down But since the talk, you and me I mean, you and I have had I've got a good friend, I see JERRY: Well, I'm not so very bad HATTIE: What say, let's be buddies What say, let's be pals What say, let's be buddies And keep up each other's morales I may never shout it But many's the time I'm blue What say, how's about it Can't I be a buddy to you? SPOKEN: JERRY: Yes, with certain reservations HATTIE: Will you try your best to go for this moll? JERRY: Hattie, what are you talking about? HATTIE: If you do, I'll buy a new dress for your doll JERRY: But please let me pick it out HATTIE: And I'll take you to hear the big cathedral bells JERRY: Oh, I hate those noisy old chimes HATTIE: Well, instead then we'll go to see Gone With The Wind JERRY: But I've already seen it four times HATTIE: Would you like a big box of chocolate creams? JERRY: No, for candy I never did care HATTIE: Then will you let me get you a cute little dog? JERRY: Would you mind making it a bear? HATTIE: Say, Jerry, old kid, you're a tough proposition Are you sure your lid is in a healthy condition? Are you feelin' good, Jerry? JERRY: What me? Why, very. HATTIE: Well, whether you are or not..... If you're on the town If you're on your own Well, I'm sort of down And sick of being alone Do you ever spend your evenings with the blues? 'Cause if you do my friend We're both in the same shoes ***** As recorded by Les Brown & Doris Day: What say, let's be buddies What say, let's be pals What say, let's be buddies And keep up each others morale I may never shout it But many's the time I'm blue What say, hows about it Can I be a buddy to you (Contributed by Bill Huntley - January 2005) *****
