buddy’s advice lyrics – paul butterfield blues band

when you b*mped into me on a crowded avenue
i knew i couldn’t let you slide
i knew that sooner or later i bet that you’d just keep on
waiting on it
you’d run out of places to hide

well, i’ve been waiting on you, yeah, for two long years
counting on my buddy’s advice
baby, you b*mped into somebody who was quicker than me
so my buddy’s keeping you on ice
um, baby

well, i saw you at the laundromat the other day, baby
washing somebody’s clothes
oh, there must be some dirty business going on
’cause i quit smelling like a rose

well, i’ve been waiting on you, yeah, for two long years
counting on my buddy’s advice
baby, you b*mped into somebody who was quicker than me
so my buddy’s keeping you on ice
um, baby, come on now, kick it!

well, you might think that i’ve got a hole in my head
counting on my buddy so long
i’m gonna get me a forty-four to set things right
just as long as i sing this song
