Buddy’s Back in Town
©2000, Bar Scott ASCAP 

 

We said good-bye to him in 1943

I told Freya Alan then
my life’s ahead of me when Buddy’s back in town!

Sinatra would sing to us each night on the radio
We would sit and hope that he’d sing “I’ll Be Seeing You”
When Buddy’s back in town

I’ll hear that train come down the track
I’ll wear lipstick ‘red-as-love’
I’ll be the first one there in a big round hat
And I will wave right back
When he’s back in town

We’d look to Orion at the same time every night
I’d find I’d be dreamin’ of my man in his sailor whites
When he gets back in town

I’ll hear that train come down the track
I’ll wear lipstick ‘red-as-love’
I’ll be the first one there in a big round hat
And I will wave right back

And then he’ll say to me
“Oh, Shirl, will you marry me?
Please, marry me?”
And then I will say to him
“Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"

I said good-bye to him in 1943
Now Buddy’s back in town
