"A Bunch Of Friends" (Aug.
I had a bunch of friends once
I thought them friends you see.
And since I've
found them all out
There's not much left for me.
It must be nice to have friends
You'll know the kind I mean,
Not these that
talk behind your back
Or laugh when they're unseen.
A bunch of friends I called my gang
I loved them all and now
I've a sickness
that is no disgrace
And they don't come around somehow.
I guess they're all afraid of me
But they'll all get their due.
They may be sick
Then guess what I will do?
I'll go to see them everyone,
As tho' things
And say, "I hope you'll soon be well"
But I guess it's time you're nappen.
So I'll be on my way, my dear,
expect a letter,
To tell me how you get along
And if you're feeling better.
I'm glad I had that sickness
For I know now what to do
I'll just forget the old friends
And hunt a bunch of new.
guess they think that this time
Will never, never be.
Because they say it's dangerous
When a person has T.B.
