Indian Giver

by Dick Haymes

Richard Benjamin "Dick" Haymes (September 13, 1918 – March 28, 1980) was an actor and singer. He was one of the most popular male vocalists of the 1940s and early 1950s. He was the older brother of Bob Haymes, who was an actor, television host, and songwriter.




Once we were so close we were fused,
Belly to belly

And now we're standing back to back
It's strange that we should be feuding
Once we were so close we were joined,
Forehead to forehead

Now we live in our own little worlds
We don't speak the same language

Who am I?  
I am you and I
Who are you?  
You are me too
Who are we?  
We are you and me
Who are they?  
They don't matter anyway
Once we were so close we held hands

Into the evening
Now we drift into a pea soup fog
We're lost in different directions
Et tu Indian giver
