There were two old men played by Walter and Jack,
How they lived together, I'll never know,

After many years, one of them is gone
To where old roommates go,

Both of them had been divorced --
No woman could live with either,

After years of each other's company
I guess they both needed a breather,

In spite of seeming crustiness,
We never let them drive us up the wall,

Many will miss old Walter Matthau --
Jack Lemon most of all.
