Theme Song for Estes Park Credit Union Conference
By Mrs. P. D. Holmes
(Tune: The Man on the Flying Trapeze)

This fellow from Boston, the home of the bean,
Has a wit and a mind that is sparkling and keen,
He works day and night, to show folks the light,
First seen by the great man - Filene!
Oh the gospel he spreads - credit unions,
Spells the doom of the dreaded loan shark,
His cause spells financial salvation,
Rekindling faith, courage, and spark.

Oh, this Roy Bergengren, he's the mon ye well ken,
Inspiration for debt-ridden, worry-worn men,
Over sea, and by rail, he blazed credit's trail,
Leading the movement we hail.

There's anither, begorra, bejabbers, bedad,
So full of the blarney, it makes your heart glad,
Whin he talks credit unions, they kine by the scad,
Tim O'Shaughnessy, he's the wee lad!
With helpers assisting, inspiring,
He's the spirit behind Illinois,
In the work he is faithful, untiring,
He's a booster, this foine Irish boy!


Oh there's Doig, Brainerd, Orchard, Rentfro and Long,
Cohen and Percival, all cohorts strong,
There's Gartland an Hyland, Skorstad and King,
And others whose praises we'd sing!
They're uniting our whole belov'ed nation,
And the Shylocks have fled to the trees,
Tho' they're here and they're there,
They're not up in the air,
Like the man on the flying trapeze.
