*UW—Milwaukee*

Oh, Happy Day!
Waking to another Milwaukee day.
Seven Days a Week,
These,
our Happy Days:

A Sunday ball game at Henry Aaron,
Monday we bowl at the Student Union after class.
Tuesday it’s music at 8th note coffeehouse,
Here’s when our weeks begin to go fast….

Wednesday it’s the Rec
to clean up on the pool tables;
Thursday it’s North Avenue and Water Street—
Drinking our buddies under the tables.

Friday it’s a movie at Sandburg,
Then Saturday….
Oh What a Day,
Brew City parties with the beer as confetti;
We dance so long we beat the jukebox—
Arthur Fonzarelli.

Oh, these are happy days,
We live every minute of all these hours,
We will hold on to all of these days,
because
These Days are Ours.
