Heptune presents:

Can't We Be Friends

    (K. Swift - P. James)

Transcribed from The Georgians; vocals by Johnny Morris; recorded 11/22/1929.
From: Can't Help Lovin' That Man; Art Deco Columbia Legacy CK 52855.

I thought I found the man of dreams,
Now, it seems, this is how the story ends:
He's gonna turn me down and say, "Can't we be friends?"

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong,
Not for long; I can say the way this ends:
He's gonna turn me down and say, "Can't we be friends?"

Never again; through with love, through with men;
They play the game without shame,
And who's to blame?

I thought I found the man I could trust;
What a bust; this is how the story ends:
He's gonna turn me down and say, "Can't we be friends?"
