I Got It From Agnes

by Tom Lehrer


I love my friends and they love me
We're just as close as we can be
And just because we really share
Whatever we get we share

I got it from Agnes
She got it from Jim
We all agree it must have been
Louise who gave is to him

Now she got it from Harry
Who got it from Marie
And everybody knows that Marie
Got it from me

Giles got it from Daphne
She got it from Joan
Who picked it up in county court
A-kissing the Blarney Stone

Pierre gave it to Sheila
Who must have brought it there
He got it from Francois and Jacque
Ah ha, lucky Pierre

Max got it from Edith
Who gets it every Spring
She got it from her daddy
Who just gives her everything

She then gave it to Daniel
Whose Spaniel has it now
Our dentist even got it
And we're still wondering how

Ah, but I got it from Agnes
Or maybe it was Sue
Or Mily or Billy or Jilly or Willy
It doesn't matter who

It might have been at the pub
Or at the club or in the Lou
And if you will be my friend then I might
Mind you I said might
Give it to you

I Got It From Agnes is the twenty-eighth (28th) song on the Songs And More Songs By Tom Lehrer album and the twenty fourth (24th) song on disc one of the Remains Of Tom Lehrer album. It is an original song by Tom Lehrer.
