Words and Music by Arthur West Arranged by John A. Stromberg.

We're travelers all in this ocean of life,
Through calm, through storm, through gale;
In different directions our good ships are bound,
But one ship must always prevail,
And that ship is friendship, the best ship of all,
And cling to it I ever shall;
Amongst us all here we can easy recall
The grasp of a dear old pal.

Old pals, old pals, dear old pals of mine:
Old pals, old pals, I'll drink your health in wine;
Tho' the world may dreary be, forget I never shall
The friendship that is given by a dear old pal.

How pleasant it is when our day's work is done
To tell the old, old tale-
A pipe and a glass to assist in the fun-
Then friendship must always prevail;
We tell the old story of days that's gone by-
The fun that we've had with the gals:
When you see two old fogies who laugh till they cry,
You know they are jolly old pals.- Chorus.

Songs may be sung about women and wine
That fill your hearts with glee-
Songs in that order are lovely and fine-
But I think with me you'll agree,
It warms up the heart and it brightens the eye,
As only such strains ever shall;
So join in with me, let your voices ring high
In praise of your dear old pal.- Chorus.
