about

I've noticed over the years that great songs are all in the details. Still on my waltzing kick in fall 2009, I sat down to tell it like it is at a Kowalski family gathering, where every day is a holiday.

lyrics

3. GOODBYE DEAR AUNT BOBEETS
Words and music copyright 2009 by Britt Arnesen

Your grandson's in the garden a carrot to eat
Cousins in the orchard having a feast
All of my bags are packed; I'm ready to leave
I've got to keep on them traveling feet

I'm singing goodbye dear Aunt Bobeets
And goodbye Uncle Steve
Your flowers were pretty; the apples were sweet
I can't wait to come back next spring

Uncle Todd is on the barbecue poking at the meat
Aunt Lorie's in the kitchen with her sisters chopping up the beets
I'm in the guestroom on the phone with my sweets
He's the reason I'm back on my traveling feet
Yeah I've got to get back on my traveling feet

Singing goodbye dear Aunt Bobeets
And goodbye Uncle Steve
Your fences are deerproof; your woodpile is neat
But I've got to get back on my traveling feet
Yeah I've got to get back on my traveling feet
Singing goodbye dear family
