A round the corner I have a friend,In this
great city that has no end,Yet the days go by and weeks rush
on,And before I know it, a year is gone.And I never see my
old friend's face,For life is a swift and terrible race,He
knows I like him just as well,As in the days when I rang his
bell.And he rang mineIf, we were younger then,And now
we are busy, tired men.Tired of playing a foolish game,Tired
of trying to make a name."Tomorrow" I say "I will call on
Jim""Just to show that I'm thinking of him."But tomorrow comes
and tomorrow goes,And distance between us grows and
grows.Around the corner - yet miles away,"Here's a
telegram sir""Jim died today."And that's what we get and
deserve in the end.Around the corner, a vanished friend.
