Although introduced by Red McKenzie and His Orchestra in October 1931, it first became a hit when singer Russ Columbo performed it with Leonard Joy’s Orchestra in 1932. It charted again the same year in a version by Ben Selvin and His Orchestra and has been recorded often since.
Just friends, lovers no more, Just friends, but not like before To think of what we've been, And not to kiss again Seems like pretending, It isn't the ending
Two friends, drifting apart, Two friends, but one broken heart We loved, we laughed, we cried, Then suddenly love died The story ends and we're just friends
We loved we laughed and we cried, Then suddenly love died The story ends and we're just friends.
