†† BUDDY'S SONG††

†††††† Went to a mountain party
††††††††† Everyone was there
††††††††† Tiger, Rootie, Bird and Ludie
††††††††† And Monte came by air

††††††††† Had two pigs a cookin
††††††††† In an oven made of wood
††††††††† Salt taters, corn and pickeled beans
††††††††† Boy, it all smelt good

††††††††† He said, "I can't take it with me
††††††††† My million-dollar view
††††††††† So, I'll share these clouds with the whole damn crowd
††††††††† Until my life is through"

††††††††† Two weeks they were groomin
††††††††† All the fields were mowed
††††††††† Cattails down and Spirits up
††††††††† On everyone I know

††††††††† High up on the mountain
††††††††† Takin in the view
††††††††† Pitchin shoes and tossin eggs
††††††††† And sippin Buddies's brew

††††††††† "And with my friends I share these memories
††††††††† Forget these times I never will
††††††††† They'll all come back when winter's over
††††††††† To my place on Angel Hill"

††††††††† Went to a cabin party
††††††††† Usual crowd was there
††††††††† Buster, Pam and popeyed Sam
††††††††† Whose music filled the air

††††††††† Couples were out dancin
††††††††† Passin squash to Cathy's call
††††††††† Countin rope or pitchin tents
†††† †††† Or doin nothin at all

††††††††† "I can't take it with me
††††††††† My million dollar view
††††††††† So, I'll share these clowds with the whole damn crowd
††††††††† Until my life is throughî
