WYSIWYG woman     David M Regen © 1997

Some girls put on powder and paint
They wanna look like what they ain't
Blond blond-hair wig and high-heel shoes
All that stuff to obscure the view

    Wysiwyg woman's got nothin to hide
    Want such-a woman here by my side
    Wysiwyg woman is a real good bet
    Cause what you see is what you get

Some girls go for a facial tuck
Get on the table for a lipo suckb
They don't want to be so big
That kind-of stuff ain't wysiwyg

They're all enchanting when you meet
Wearin a smile that's really sweet
But you'll find out when it's too late
They have the urge to dominate

Wysiwyg woman is hard to find
If she'll have me I'll make her mine
She'll have a lock and I'll have a key
Wysiwyg woman is the one for me

Passages     David M Regen © 1995

Annie your letter arrived just today
Welcomed affection from so far away
God has possessed you of feature and mind
And with a soul that is graceful and kind
Annie dear Annie when I come to you
We'll live together with love that is true
Annie how precious this child in your arms
Hope for the future protected from harm
So much to teach him while he is still young
Hold to the right though surrounded by wrong
Annie dear Annie these children of ours
Each one a treasure a fruit of the flower
Annie your courage and kindness endured
Here at my side in the bad times and good
Nurtured our children and now they are grown
Bountiful harvest from seeds we have sewn
Annie dear Annie in autumn of life
Daily I'm thankful that you are my wife
Annie your name is now chiseled in stone
Love for you lingers although you are gone
Bless-ed are those whom you touched on the way
Angels are with you in Heaven today
Annie dear Annie when I cross the tide
We'll meet again and I'll stay by your side
(original first lines:
Annie I'm holding you close to my heart
Though a great distance keeps us far apart)

Daisy is a lady     David M Regen © 1995

My Daisy was a bandit, when she was very young
Chewed up all my pillows, got feathers on her tongue
Dug the neighbor's garden up, and nibbled on my arm
Climbed up on our bed at night, to keep her body warm
But Daisy is a lady now, so sweet and sensitive
Slender legs and head up high, she's elegance itself
See her and you will agree, she is a work of art
I wouldn't take a fortune for, this lady of our yard
Her manners were atrocious, her appetite perverse
Drinking from the bird bath, and often something worse
Stole the neighbor's papers, although she couldn't read
Left them in our driveway to, expose her larceny

She worried all the garbage men, and mister UPS
Thought they were invaders, that came from outer space
Messed up all my Sunday clothes, with imprints of her paws
Tormented the birds and squirrels, and some were in her jaws

Country parables     David M Regen © 1995

Old-time country music, it stirs my heart and soul
It draws me in its circle, my name is on its roll
Its prophets are compelling, its parables profound
So won't you come and join me, in this church of rustic sound

Luke the drifter talked to us, of things we need to know
Think my friend consider well, before a stone you throw
Watch your tongue lift up your thoughts, and gossip don't repeat
For you may be indebted to, the bad girl down the street

Acuff told a story, of one who had succumbed
Life for her was bitter, and from the bridge she jumped
They pulled her from the river, but no one knew her name
This woman had no loved ones, her body was unclaimed

I won't forget Red Foley, my heart-strings he did tug
He told us of the love that is, between a boy and dog
Shep pulled him from the swimming hole, where he had nearly drowned
When Shep was old it broke his heart, to put his dear friend down

These words of Eddie Arnold, I heard them long ago
Do not neglect your mother, the one who loves you so
She nurtured you and guided you, so do not leave her there
All alone an angel in an, old rocking chair

And give my love to Dolly, the brightest of the lot
Her mother made a coat of rags, when she was just a tot
The children all made fun of her, they did not understand
That love went into every stitch, by her dear mother's hand

Yes country can inspire you, wake up your sleeping soul
Turn you from your selfish ways, make kindness your goal
This world would be a better place, a kinder place I know
With more old-time country music, on the radio

Christmas angels     David M Regen © 1995

One Christmas evening the lights were glowing
The air was filled with joy and mirth
We gathered round our Christmas tree to
Celebrate our Savior's birth

Then at our fireside appeared two angels
No one had seen from whence they came
They stood before the people gathered
Addressing each of us by name

We bring a greeting unto this household
The little children the old and gray
It is a home of faith and kindness
The Lord is pleased with you today

And if you reach out to all His people
Some Christmas eve we'll come again
And then they turned around and vanished
Their blessing has with us remained

Sweetly the bells
David M Regen © 1995


Sweetly the bells now are ringing
Hear their melodious voice
Angels in heaven are singing
Follow the star and rejoice

   Jesus is coming to you this day
   Cristus natus hodie
   Beautiful mother Maria
   Bearing the light of God

Come and behold now the baby
Mother and child in the stall
Born to become our Savior
Peace and goodwill to all

Abraham's promised descendent
From David's lineage foretold
All the world blessed by this infant
Now may God's vision unfold
