My Own Song from my Dad era 1943 --- NEW
by: Anonymous

My Dad, Ben Roethler, of Osage, Iowa amoung other places had a song for each of us 4 kids. I remember it first in Duluth Minnesota. It was sung from 1943 on up. I was then 4 years old. He would play his Spanish style guitar and sing to us four kids most every night. It went like this:
"I'm going to write to Daddy
I know how glad he'll be
To get a little letter
That's written all by me.
I'll tell him about my dolly
Who's sleeping on the floor
Be sure you do not wake her
Oh Please, don't slam the door.
I'll send him lots of Kisses
And one bright shinny curl
So that he will remember
His Darling little Girl."
I have since sang it to my daughters. I remember cutting off a curl, putting it in an envelope, and stamping it (sorta) and handing it to Daddy when he came home from work. I also had my doll placed 'behind the door.' Oh, to go Back!!

I'm going to write to Papa
by: Tru

I'm going to write to Papa,
and oh how glad he'll be,
to get a little letter,
that was written all by me.

I'll tell him 'bout my dolly,
a sleeping on the floor,
I fear that noise will wake her,
so please don't slam the door.

I'll send him hugs and kisses,
and one bright shining curl,
so he will never forget,
his own dear little girl.
