“Do-Dilly-Do (A Friend Like You)”
by Walter Martin

Oh, what a mystery
This crazy world can be
And all the wild stuff that I’ve been through
Searching all around for something true
I went clear from here to Timbuktu
’Til I finally found a friend like you

No I’m not too sure
What I’m always searching for
But I’m searching each day
’Til the day gets late
And wake up on the floor

Buddy I don’t know
Just where that river flows
Yeah all I see
That’s guiding me
Is the fuzz on the end of my nose

But I believe
In destiny
Or whatever it is that brought a friend like you to me

So we sing
La Di Da Di Do De Li Do
A friend like you

Buddy I know you got my back
You even laugh at my cheap wisecracks
And if I fell down, and got turned around you’d put me right back on track

And I’m looking out for you
Cuz buddy I’m a good buddy too
And if you’re in despair you know I’d be there ‘cause that’s what good buddies do

And believe
Can help us solve all world’s great mysteries

As we sing
La Di Da Di Do De Li Do
A friend like you


Everybody now!
La Di Da Di Do De Li Do
A friend like you

What’d I do to get a friend like you?
What’d I do to get a friend like you?
What’d I do…
To get a friend like you
