    Lyrics

    I've got a longing 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
    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
    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
    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

    Recitation:
    Last night 'neath a street lamp I silently stood
    On the same corner back in that old neighborhood
    As I gazed at the houses, unchanged by the years
    In my throat came a lump and my eyes filled with tears
    I looked at the lamppost, the pump and the stoop
    And again I could picture us kids in a group
    There was Shorty, and Yeller and Skinny and Mike
    And the rich kid who had ball bearing skates and a bike
    And down near the school I could see the brick wall
    Where we used to go for a game of handball
    And the crabby old janitor who chased us away
    Say, what I wouldn't give to just see him today!

    And then came the parties and dances-- that's why
    We didn't notice the years going by
    And the first thing we knew we were all twenty-one
    But the Gang stuck together in a fight or in fun
    -And then came the War- the crowds in the street
    -The blast of the Bugle- the tramp of the feet
    And the gang, that old gang of mine
    Was the first gang that hit the Von Hindenburg line.

    But the war is all over and last night as I stood
    On the same corner back in that old neighborhood
    I couldn't help brushing a tear from my eye
    For I knew not a face in the crowds that went by
    Gone forever are the pals that I love
    There isn't a trace or a sign
    Of that regular honest to goodness old bunch
    That I call that old gang of mine
