Song from "Panama Hattie" - 1940 Broadway Musical
Cole Porter - Let's Be Buddies Lyrics
HATTIE: I get awful gloomy
JERRY: You mean, ver gloomy
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
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?
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

I Am Loved
Paris Loves Lovers
All of You
You're Just Too, Too
You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To
Something for the Boys
Hey, Good Lookin'
I Love You
Count Your Blessings

Fresh as a Daisy
I'm Throwing a Ball Tonight

I've Come To Wive It Wealthily In Padua
I Hate Men
Where Is The Life That Late I Led?
Always True to You In My Fashion
I Am Ashamed That Women Are So Simple
Brush Up Your Shakespeare
You've Got That Thing
The Tale of the Oyster
I Worship You
The Laziest Gal In Town
In the Still of the Night
Looking At You
What Is This Thing Called Love?
They All Fall In Love
You Do Something to Me
I'm In Love Again
Don't Look at Me That Way
Miss Otis Regrets
The Leader of a Big Time Band
Where, Oh, Where
Is It the Girl (Or Is It the Gown)?
I've a Shooting Box in Scotland
So In Love
Red, Hot and Blue
Down in the Depths (On the 90th Floor)
All Through the Night
I Get a Kick Out Of You
I Love Paris
Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love
