hey sight for sore eyes • it's long time no see
working hard • hardly working • hey man you know me
water under the bridge • didye see my new car
well it's bought and it's payed for • parked outside of the bar ...

no the old gang ain't around • everyone has left town
'cept for Thumm and Giardina • said the just might be down
oh half drunk all the time and I'm all drunk the rest
yea monk's still the champion but I am the best ...

I guess you heard about Nash • he was killed in a crash
hell that must have been two or three years ago now
yeah he spun out and he rolled • hit a telephone pole
and he died with his radio on ...

no she's married and with a kid • finally split up with Sid
he's up north for a nickle's worth for armed robbery
hey I'll play you some pin ball • hell you ain't got a chance
well then go on over and ask her to dance ...

... hey barkeep • what's keeping you keep pouring drinks
for all these palookas • hey you know what I think
that we toast to the old days and Dimagio too
and old Drysdale and Mantle • Whitey Ford and to you
