Nellie McKay My Buddy Lyrics

Last updated: 05/08/2012 11:00:00 AM

You're something more than sunny
And you're electrifying me
I'm gonna love your money
You got a style that sets me
Is this the new temerity?
I'm gonna mend you many

I didn't know it could be nothing (Right!)
How could I could know it'd come to nothing? (Right!)
But what you say and what you give are to very different things, boy

I didn't know it could be nothing (Right!)
How could I could know it'd come to nothing? (Sight!)
But what you say and what you give is no kind of way to live

My buddy used to be someone who was striving endlessly
Somebody who loved me and could never go wasting
One who says that it's true or dies

But my buddy has it made
Everybody wants to be his slave
Got so many hearts they ought to start a parade
Singing nobody could ever replace... replace my buddy

I don't mean to be frightened
But you know we have history
This is my life I'm betting

Your floral face is fading
Are you beside or far away?
You say I get you, baby
What did you say?

My buddy used to be someone who was striving endlessly
Somebody who loved me and could never go wasting
One who says that it's true or dies

But my buddy has it made
Everybody wants to be his slave
Got so many hearts they ought to start a parade
Singing nobody could ever replace... replace my buddy

You go
You come
You come
You go

There's no escape
There's no control
I look for warning signs
But warning signs are on the [?]

Another dream that bites that dust
Another bee I cannot trust
I should protest
Just give in
But I wanna be free-ee-ee

I didn't know it could be nothing (Right!)
How could I could know it'd come to nothing? (Right!)
But what you say and what you give are to very different things, boy

I didn't know it could be nothing (Right!)
How could I could know it'd come to nothing? (Sight!)
But what you say and what you give is no kind of way to live

My buddy used to be someone who was striving endlessly
Somebody who loved me and could never go wasting
One who says that it's true or dies

But my buddy has it made
Everybody wants to be his slave
Got so many hearts they ought to start a parade
Singing nobody could ever replace... replace my buddy

Buddy
My buddy, my buddy, my buddy
Your buddy
Misses you
