Retirement of Kay Craven – Song 2

[Tune: Cottonfields]

 

WHEN SHE WAS A LITTLE BITTY BABY

HER MOMMA WOULD ROCK HER IN THE CRADLE

SAYING, YOU’LL BE AN OFFICE TECH SOME DAY.

 

THEN WHEN SHE GOT A LITTLE BIT OLDER

SHE BECAME JUST A LITTLE BIT BOLDER

AND TOOK OFF FOR CALI-FOR-NIA.

 

WITH THE HELP OF A LITTLE BIT OF KNOWLEDGE

SHE LANDED A JOB AT MESA COLLEGE

THIS WAS IN JULY OF 1968.

 

WORKING CLOSE WITH THE DEAN OF STUDENTS 

YOU’D BETTER HAVE A HELL OF A LOT OF PRUDENCE

AND KAY CRAVEN NEVER ONCE WAS LATE.

 

NOW WHEN THOSE STUDENTS GIVE HER TROUBLE

SHE WOULD GENTLY BURST THEIR BUBBLE SAYING,

“YOU’RE AT MESA COLLEGE, NOW.”

 

THEN SHE WENT TO STADIUM PLAZA

ALSO KNOW AS GARLANDS CASTLE

WHERE SHE WORKED FOR FIFTEEN YEARS AND MORE.

 

IT’S THERE SHE MADE A LOT OF FRIENDS

BUT ALL GOOD THINGS HAVE TO END

NOW SHE’S HEADED FOR THE EXIT DOOR

 

NOW SHE’LL LIVE “THE LIFE OF RILEY”

WRITING POEMS AND THINKING HIGHLY

OF THE CREW AT PLAZA’S FIRST FLOOR

 

WHEN SHE WAS A LITTLE BITTY BABY

HER MOMMA WOULD ROCK HER IN THE CRADLE

SAYING, YOU’LL BE AN OFFICE TECH SOME DAY

SAYING, YOU’LL BE AN OFFICE TECH SOME DAY.

 

M. Schroeder-Clary

Late 1980’s
