Well, I'm everybody's buddy
Everybody's 'hello, pal'
I'm even a buddy to all of the gals

Now it's alright to be a buddy
To you men
But to you girls I wanna be
More than a friend
What's wrong with me?
Why must I be
Just a buddy everywhere that I go?

I'm everybody's buddy
Everybody's "Hey my man"
I always seem to wind up
Shaking hands

You girls don't realise I wanna
Hold you tight
I wanna take you dancing
And kiss you goodnight
What's wrong with me?
Why must I be
Just a buddy everywhere that I go?

I'm as human as the next guy
Oh girls, I need a romance.
And if you keep me
Just a buddy
I won't stand a chance

I said I'm
Everybody's buddy
Everybody's "Just a friend"
The kind of friend on whom
You can depend

But I want something more
I want a love that's true
So I can do the things I see my buddies do
What's wrong with me?
Why must I be
Just a buddy everywhere that I go?

Everybody's buddy
Everybody's "Hello pal"
Can't seem to find myself
A little bitty girl

Oh what's wrong with me?
Why must I be
Just a buddy
Every little where I go?
