Transcript: 

Verse 1: All my life is empty, Since I went away, Skies don’t seem to be so clear, May some angel sentry, Guard you while I stray, And fate be kind to join us some sweet day.
Chorus: Oh, how I want you, Dear old pal of mine, Each night and day I pray you’re always mine. Sweetheart may God bless you, Angel hands caress you, While sweet dreams rest you, Dear old pal of mine
Verse 2: Dearie I’m so lonely, How I miss your smile, And your tender loving way, I just want you only, Want you all the while May God decree I have you back some day.
