  • (spoken:) George, you came all this way? And you did all of this to just cheer up Chef Pisghetti?
  • (George chatters “Uh-huh.”)

  • (spoken:) *laughs* Oh, George, you really are a great friend.

  • (singing:) You think of others first, you love beyond compare.

  • You take time to care all with the greatest starving attentions

  • And those same things don't always go the way you plan them too.

  • Anybody can be lucky to have a Buddy like you...

  • You like to help your friends, you lead a friendly hand.

  • You tried and understand what everybody else's feeling.

  • And all the times you see the world from the different point of view.

  • Everybody can be lucky to have a Buddy like you...

  • A buddy, companion, compadre, or chump, I can't think of a better thing to grow up to become...

  • If only everyone would open up their hearts, such kindness, of the charge.

  • Just think could you imagine.

  • I know that when I’m feel alone, then all I have to do.

  • Is remember I’m so lucky, so wonderfully lucky.

  • I know I'm so lucky!

  • To have a buddy…

  • A Buddy like you...
