MILWAUKING TOGETHER
Tune: “Happy Together”
Milwaukee (2)

Imagine Synod-wide, I tried
I think about a wonderland
It’s really grand
To think about us unified
And holding hands
Milwauking together

If we should all go up and share a hug
And we say we are all agreed
And not say “Ugh!”
Imagine how the church could be
So very snug
Milwauking together

I can’t see me leavin’ for anywhere else
For all my life
Warm and fuzzy, buddy, my heart starts to melt
At no more strife

Diff’rent views, we disagree
No matter, let’s just all be nice
And let it be
The only way for peace is through
Diversity
Milwauking together

I can’t see me leavin’ for anywhere else
For all my life
Warm and fuzzy, buddy, my heart starts to melt
At no more strife

Diff’rent views, we disagree
No matter, let’s just all be nice
And let it be
The only way for peace is through
Diversity
Milwauking together

Blah, blah, blah, blah . . .

Diff’rent views, we disagree
No matter, let’s just all be nice
And let it be
The only way for peace is through
Diversity
Milwauking together
Milwauking together
Birds of a feather
Milwauking together
We’re walking together
Milwauking together
Walking together
Milwauking together
Milwauking together

MILWAUKEE, HERE I COME (My Circuit’s Sendin’ Me)
Tune: Milwaukee, Here I Come (From Nashville, Tennessee)
Milwaukee LCMS (2)

Well, I’m gonna get on an aeroplane, and I’m gonna fly
I’m gonna leave this town, and I’ll tell you why
I am a delegate, empowered as can be
Milwaukee, here I come, my circuit’s sendin’ me

Milwaukee’s where we’ll go in July this year
Meetin’ in convention, comin’ from far and near
They elected me by a circuit vote when I was an absentee
So that’s how I got chosen as our man for Milwaukee

Now I’m getting’ emails and letters by the score
They tell me how to vote, and tomorrow there’ll be more
I’m readin’ them and findin’ out no matter who I choose
The one side says we’re winnin’, and the other says we lose

Well, I’m gonna get on an aeroplane, and I’m gonna fly
I’m gonna leave this town, and I’ll tell you why
I am a delegate, empowered as can be
Milwaukee, here I come, my circuit’s sendin’ me . . .

I’m gonna take my votin’ lists and nail ’em to a wall
I’m gonna throw some darts, that’s how I’ll pick ’em all
But I know one thing for sure, when convention time is here
At the end of the day I’m goin’ out for some good Milwaukee beer

So I’m gonna get on an aeroplane, and I’m gonna fly
I’m gonna leave this town, and I’ll tell you why
I am a delegate, empowered as can be
Milwaukee, here I come, my circuit’s sendin’ me
Oh, Milwaukee, here I come, my circuit’s sendin’ me


WHAT’S MADE MILWAUKEE TEDIOUS (Has Made a Luth’ran out of Me)
Tune: What’s Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser out of Me)
Convention-Landing-images-01[1]

It’s late and we’re debating
And I know we should go home
But every time I want to leave
They call a microphone
Then someone makes another speech
And amendments A and B
What’s made Milwaukee tedious
Has made a fool out of me

People begged me not to go
So many times before
They say love and happiness
Can’t live upon convention floors
Now I sit and suffer through
Too late I finally see
What’s made Milwaukee tedious
Has made a Luth’ran out of me

People begged me not to go
So many times before
They say love and happiness
Just can’t live upon convention floors
Now I sit and suffer through
Too late I finally see
What’s made Milwaukee tedious
Has made a Luth’ran out of me
What’s made Milwaukee tedious
Has made a Luth’ran out of me

    Blah, blah, blah, blah . . .
