I see a man's eternal smile
Curly hair, suit, and tie
Glasses framing eyes so bright
But I see Buddy Holly in black and white

I read the headline held in a frame
I see the phone booth, last call he made
The routing zigzags left and right
But I see Buddy Holly in black and white

I feel a chill throughout the hall
I see your face upon each wall
Trying to picture the colors that night
But I see Buddy Holly in black and white
Well I see Buddy Holly in black and white
