Agnes (The Teenage Russian Spy): Mike Russo [1963]

This silly track lampoons the tragic teen songs of the late '50s and early '60s by recounting the melodramatic travails of the titular anti-heroine. The composer(s) is (are) unknown, but it would be fascinating to know if the character of 'Agnes' might have been inspired by the writer(s) imagining the 'red exploits' of a young Ethel Rosenberg.

Mike Russo had an apparently short lived music career with only one other recorded song on the Crosley label: Let's Do The Pretzel (And End Up Like One).

LYRICS/TRANSCRIPTION:
Agnes (The Teenage Russian Spy): Mike Russo [1963]

Agnes, oh Agnes
Oh, how I love you
Agnes, oh Agnes
Oh, how you made me blue

‘Cause today I was informed by the FBI
You're nothing but a teenage Russian spy
Agnes, oh Agnes
Just what have you done?
Agnes, my Agnes
For the Soviet Union
If only you were booked for beltin' some guy
Instead of for being a teenage Russian spy

I thought that you really cared
The night that we first kissed
But now I know that you were just playing with me
‘Cause I was a son of an atomic scientist

Agnes, oh Agnes
Life's more than I can bear
‘Cause Agnes, my Agnes
They're giving you the chair
But even though you are a teenage Russian spy
Agnes, my Agnes I'll love you ‘til you die

Spoken:
I can't help myself Agnes,
I love you ‘til you die Agnes
Wave bye, bye Agnes
More power to you Agnes
