Henry 'Buddy' Bernier (Watertown, New York, 21 April 1910 - June 18, 1983) was an American lyricist, mainly active during the 1940s and 50s. Bernier is perhaps best remembered for "Poinciana", written with composer Nat Simon, first introduced in the 1952 film Dreamboat. He was also the lyricist on "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" (not to be confused with the Bobby Vee song of the same name) co-written with Jerry Brainin and covered by John Coltrane and Harry Belafonte amongst others.
