Bedtime

AutumnMy Parents are Old Fuddy-Duddys Nothing Down Below but Water Were the Victors If you will be my Valentine

Milwaukee Junior Academy

Will There Be Room In Heaven For Dogs And Cats

I met the man of my Dreams at a Square Dance

Ballad of Hard Luck Joe

Its My Life

The Nowhere RoadFear Not

Its Okay to Say Merry Christmas

BEDTIMEGood night, good night, my Mama said

My Daddy said goodnight too.

And as he tucked the blanket in

He kissed my nose and then my chin

And said sweet dreams to you.

Then Mama tucked my brother in;

She kissed and hugged him tight.

Then Daddy said goodnight my son

Go right to sleep the day is done.

And Mom turned out the light.

Our children are a gift from GodTo love and keep from harm

And when theyve said their prayers each night

We kiss and hug and hold them tight

And leave them in Gods arms.

Bedtime was written in 1956 for

Agness children, Robin and Leonard,

AUTUMNWhen autumn comes and acorns fall

And tumble in the breeze.

The squirrels gather up the nuts

And store them in the trees.

I go to gather acorns too.

They tremble in alarm.

Those timid squirrels dont understand

That I mean them no harm.

Although they run and hide from me

And seldom reappear

I must have food for city squirrels

To eat when winters here.

Autumn was written in 1955 for Agness children, Robin and Leonard,MY PARENTS ARE OLD FUDDY-DUDDYSV 1

My parents are old fuddy-duddys.

Theyre constantly grumbling you see.

They say that they dont have no money

And money dont grow on a tree.

I need some new tennies for Gym class.

My old ones are falling in shreds.

But I must make do with the old ones

Theres not enough dough for retreads.

V 2

I asked can I go to the movies?

Were not made of money you know.

Why dont you go play with your buddies.

I cant, they all went to the show.

One day they went shopping for dinner

I asked for some burgers and fries.

Too expensive youll get macaroni.

For themselves they chose prime cut rib eyes.

V 3

Ill get me a job when Im older

And when I have money to spend

Ill stock up on burgers and soda

But I wont have money to lend.

If my folks ever come for a visit

And ask if Ive something to drink

I think Ill just offer them water

Theres plenty on tap at my sink.

Chorus

Now its not that I am complaining

But heres what I want to make clear.

If they cant afford to buy soda

How can they afford to buy beer.

Words and music were written when Agnes wastwelve or thirteen

NOTHING DOWN BELOW BUT WATERWith the moon up above

And the water down below

Nothing down below but water.

We sailed the seas with a loud heave ho

And nothing down below but water.

The stars that shine on high

Were twinkling in the sky

Still nothing down below but water.

We watched for Pirate sails and saw a few whales

And nothing down below but water.

Written when Agnes was age fourteen. She and two friends werecrossing Lake Michigan from Milwaukee to Muskegan.WERE THE VICTORSWe marched right out to victory

The Highlanders of Homestead High

We hit that line

We blocked those kicks

We plowed right through

To carry off the banner

Were the victors

Were the victors

Were the victors of this year

We made those teams respect our name

Because weve won our every game

So three cheers for Homestead High.

Our bands the grandest in the land

They stayed through the thick and thin

The drums, the horns

The majorettes

All did their share to help us win the pennant

Were the victors

Were the victors

Were the victors of this year

We made those teams respect our name

Because weve won our ever game

So three cheers for Homestead High

This song was composed when Boyss Technical High School won all its Games for the first time in twenty years. Boys Tech no longer exists so the wording was changed to Homestead Highschool in Mequon, WI to the Highlanders of Homestead High in Mequon.IF YOU WILL BE MY VALENTINEMale:

If you will be my Valentine Ill bring you huge bouquets

Of roses, daisies, violets, to brighten up your days.

If you will be my Valentine Ill bring you chocolate creams;

Bon-bons, fudge and truffles to fulfill your wildest dreams.

Female:

I dont need your huge bouquets, though flowers are so sweet.

And I dont need your chocolate creams to make my life complete.

If I would be your Valentine, and if our lives should intertwine

Dont promise me a treat.

Male:

If you will be my Valentine Ill bring you lingerie.

Ill wrap you up in softest silks and keep you on display.

If you will be my Valentine Ill bring champagne and wine,

Rare cheeses, fruit and caviar If you will just be mine.

Female:

I dont need your lingerie, dont bring me caviar

Or put me on a pedestal, Ill take you as you are.

If I would be your Valentine, I need no food, champagne or wine.

Your love would take me far.

Male:

If you will be my Valentine, Ill bring you diamond rings,

Rubies, emeralds, strings of pearls and other precious things.

If you will be my Valentine, Ill bring you lavish fur;

Mink and sable, ermine too will add to your allure.

Female:

I dont need those lavish furs to prove my love is real.

You dont need to give me gifts to add to your appeal.

I dont need your diamond ring or any other kind of bling.

For you are my ideal.

Male:

If you will be my Valentine, Ill bring you French perfume.

Exotic scents for every mood will keep your mind in tune.

If you will be my Valentine, Ill give you all my love.

Ill give you wholly of myself; Ill hold you hand in glove.

Female:

I dont need your French perfume; youre always on my mind.

If you will use your common sense I think that you will find

That I will be your Valentine, your one and only valentine,

And I will do my part, Ill trust you with my heart.

MILWAUKEE JUNIOR ACADEMYThe spirit of the faithful is running through our school

Were happy in our work and play and in the Golden Rule.

We laugh and sing in all we do at this academy

Because we are a shining light in the city of Milwaukee.

MJA, our MJA, the grandest school of all

We are proud of MJA, it stands out great though small

We shall ever more be true to thee our dear academy

Well be loyal, Well be true to MJA.

Note: Agnes attended the Seventh Day Adventist School, Milwaukee Junior

Academy during her middle school years. Written when she was age sixteen, the song wasnt used while she was there but the academy later adopted it as the school song.

WILL THERE BE ROOM IN HEAVEN FOR DOGS AND CATSVerse 1Will there be room in Heaven for dogs and cats

Will I get to hug Pepper again

And will Comet be waiting to go for a walk

On the gem covered byways of Heaven.

Verse 2

Will there be room in Heaven for dogs and cats

Will I get to groom Heidi once more.

And will Rally be waiting to climb in my lap

To sniff out the treats that I store.

Verse 3

Our pets are a comfort to us when were ill

And companions when were feeling low.

Their love and devotion is wholly complete.

Why they could be Angels you know.

Chorus:Not one single sparrow can fall to the ground,

Without our Lord being aware.

So there must be provision for our little pets.

For surely our Father does care.

I MET THE MAN OF MY DREAMS AT A SQUARE DANCEChorus

I met the man of my dreams at a square dance.

It was a neat dance;

A meet and greet dance.

I met the love of my life at a square dance.

I call it the dance of my life.

Verse 1

At times he will backtrack and circulate;

But scoots back to me at the end.

Although he may promenade with another gal

I know she is only a friend

Chorus

I met the man of my dreams at a square dance

It was a great dance

A stay out late dance

I met the love of my life at a square dance

I call it the dance of my life.

Verse 2

At times I may wheel around with another guy

And visit with him for awhile.

Before he veers forward and slips the clutch;

I zoom right back home with a smile.Chorus

I met the man of my dreams at a square dance

It was a swell dance

A ring the bell dance

I met the love of my life at a square dance

I call it the dance of my life.

Verse 3

My partner and I are true swingers

But we always stay on the beat.

Our boots were made just for dancing

We dont step on the other ones feet.

Chorus

I met the man of my dreams at a square dance

It was a blast dance

An unsurpassed dance

I met the love of my life at a square dance

I call it the dance of my life.
