Can't We Be Friends?

Can't We Be Friends?

(Kay Swift / James Paul Warburg) 1929


Roy Fox and his Band

I thought I'd found the gal of my dreams
Now it seems why, this is how the story ends
She's gonna turn me down and say
Can't we be friends?

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong
Not for long, I can see the way this ends
She's gonna turn me down and say
Can't we be friends?

Never again, through with love, through with gals
They play the game without shame, and who's to blame?

I thought I'd found a gal I could trust
What a bust, this is how the story ends
She's gonna turn me down and say
Can't we be friends?
