My Friend

From The Washington Herald, June 22, 1913.

 I am the best pal I ever had
     I like to be with me.
 I like to sit and tell myself
     Things confidentially.
 I often sit and ask me
     If I shouldn’t or I should,
 And I find that my advice to me
     Is always pretty good.
 I never got acquainted with
     Myself till here of late,
 And I find myself a bully chum
     I treat me simply great.
 I talk with me and walk with me
     And show me right and wrong.
 I never knew how well myself
     And me could get along.
 I never try to cheat me
     I’m as truthful as can be.
 No matter what may come and go
     I’m on the square with me.
 It’s great to know yourself and have
     A pal that’s all your own,
 To be such company for yourself
     You’re never left alone.
 You’ll try to dodge the masses
     And you’ll find a crowd’s a joke,
 If you only treat yourself as well
     As you treat other folk.
 I’ve made a study of myself
     Compared me with a lot,
 And I’ve finally concluded
     I’m the best friend I’ve got.
 Just get together with yourself
     And trust yourself with you.
 You’ll be surprised how well yourself
     Will like you if you do.
