1. I've got a longin' way down in my heart
For that old gang that has drifted apart.
They were the best pals that I ever had,
I never thought that I'd want them so bad
Gee but I'd give the world to see that old gang of mine
I can't forget that old quartette that sang "Sweet Adeline"
Goodbye forever old fellows and gals,
Goodbye forever old sweethearts and pals (God bless them)
Gee but I'd give the world to see that old gang of mine.
2. Last night I strolled to that old neighborhood,
There on that corner I silently stood,
I felt so blue as the crowds hurried by,
nobody knew how I wanted to cry
