Of course:

Beans, beans, the musical fruit.
The more you eat, the more you toot.
The more you toot, the better you feel.
So eat beans at every meal.

(Except with chili.)

"Complicated" by Carolyn Dawn Johnson? http://www.carolyndawnjohnson.com Not sure of the exact lyrics.

Your son and his compadres probably would enjoy the "Constipation Blues" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins of "I Put a Spell on You" fame .

Yo Grampy!

How about:

On top of a pizza
All covered with cheese
I found my first meatball
Til somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table
And onto the floor
It rolled and rolled
Right out of the door.

After that, you made up your own verses about how the meatball rolled over various people, military, and countries and did them in.


There was also the song about the boy who drank the wrong beverage:

Johnny's gone to heaven
To live forever more
For what he thought was H20
Was H2SO4.

And speaking of meatballs, though it wasn't a jingle: "Now that's a spicy meatball!

Grampy,

As I recall, the Chicago version was:

Is it whiskey
Is it wine
O my gosh, it's terpentine.


Dick Biondi, one of the early Chicago dj's on WJJD sang:

"On top of a pizza"

but when I went to Boy Scout Camp in Wisconsin, we sang:

"On top of spaghetti"

Who cares, as long as we're still around to sing it, let alone remember it!

Wait, here's a few more:

My eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord,
He is driving down the alley in a pink and yellow Ford,
One hand on the throttle
And the other on a bottle
Of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer.


Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity, flop!


Ya better not pout
Ya better not cry
Ya better not shout
I'm tellin ya why
Santa Claus is dead!

Our "On Top OF" version was:

On top of Spaghetti
All covered with sand
I shot my poor teacher
with a green rubber band.

I shot it with pleasure
I shot it with pride
I couldn't of missed her
She was 40 feet wide

Dearfolk,
That was the scout camp version of a song that actually became a hit: "On Top Of Spaghetti" by Tom Glaser & The Children's Chorus on Kapp Records. I've got the 45. Even now, 35+ years later after it charted (if briefly, thank God!), I find the thing excruciatingly fun to listen to.
They had a follow-up (I have it, too), but mercufully I can't remember it right now. Some forgotten things are blessings.

The Boy Scout version was:

I'm looking over,
My poor dog Rover,
That I just ran over,
With my power mower.

One leg is missing.
The other half's gone,
There's no denying,
That Rover's dying.


And speaking of Boy Scouts:

On my honor,
I'll do my best,
To help the girls scouts,
Get undressed.

Or

Clean in body,
Clean in mind,
Take your pick.

Or

Be prepared,
That's the Boy Scout,
Marching song.

Be prepared,
Through the years,
We march along.

Be prepared,
To hold you liquor,
Very well.

Don't write,
Naughty words on walls,
If you can't spell.

If a woman,
Comes along,
Don't be tired,
Don't be scared,
Be prepared!

here again..the whole thing:

Once upon a time there was an engineer
Choo Choo Charlie was his name, we hear.
He had an engine and he sure had fun
He used Good & Plenty candy to make his train run.
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Charlie says "Really rings my bell!"
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Don't know any other candy that I love so well

Everybody at my house loves Shrek, but only my younger liked "Road to Eldorado".

How did it play at your house?




Mmmmmmmmmm clothier, I had 12 kids here for the event. Several couples in the neighborhood and their friends gathered together for a Super Bowl Party, and since I'm a Philistine, the younger kids, aged 9 and below partied here. ( I still have clumps of hair left on my head) Creating our own homestyle Chuck E Cheese ambience we had stations that included Fisher -Price Basketball and hoop, A Twister game area, a tv with Nintendo 64 running, my computer running learning games and time wasters, a fishing for prizes deal, various board games and the Olympic trials in mattress and sofa jumping. I ordered several styles of pizza, and did the hot dogs and chili thing, as well as we had homemade popcorn balls, fruit trays and caramel and chocolate dips and kool aid. We had a spectacular impromptu halftime show with more shocking live nudity to rival Justin and Janet's showstopper. Sarah, aged 4, grew angry at her brother,Justin, aged 6, for pilfering her slice of cheese pizza, so she snuck up behind the culprit and pulled his sweat pants and underwear down around his ankles, much to the enjoyment of the crowd. Jenica, aged 5 gave us her stylings of her own lyrics to the "Legend of Zelda" music with a lot of refrains of "Oh yeah yeah yeah baby" and "He's such a phlegmwad". The movies kind of paled in light of the live entertainment, but both were well recieved by all except for Jonathan, aged 9 who wanted to see Terminator 3 and thought the offerings were "babified" and Taylor, aged 2, who screamed bloody murder and threw up when she saw the statue monster in "El Dorado". Other than the extremist Siskel and Ebert duo, both were enjoyed with a lot of commentary and singing along.

Was Bungalow Bar a New York-based ice cream truck? It was like Good Humor, but the truck was shaped like, well, a bungalow with a peaked roof. Anyway, this is what we sang:

Something we used to sing in a more innocent time, before the world went haywire

On top of old smoky
all covered in blood
I shot my poor teacher
with a new 44 slug
I went to her funeral
I went to her grave
instead of throwing daisies
I threw a grenade.

I remember seeing 'what food these morsels be' in an old Mad Magazine, alongside a graphic (ok, they weren't called graphics then) that said 'eat halvah'.

I never knew what halvah was until last year when my boyfriend ordered some at a deli -- I was so white bread until I met him, foodwise.

and she didn't have a stitch of clothes to cover her lily-white hide
the only ones who noticed as Godiva rode her horse
Were a leery-eyed surveyer and an engineer of course

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
Fuzzy wuzzy had no hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy didn't care
Cause Fuzzy was a Douhkabor

I remember:

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he?

I just remembered the tail end of a jingle from the television program Stop The Music, which was sponsored by Admiral.

... An Admiral is admirable,
the cost is low,
but the quality's always on top.

Yes, that is the correct version. My father's version was a take-off.

I saw Jay Leno at a comedy club way back when reciting an unsettling sausage ad - "Eckrich brings good meat from the heartland - and the secret ingredient is *MOM*!!!"

There are many thefts of of all sorts of music for ads. I know that there was a coffee commercial that suddenly made Satie finally famous. But memory escapes me which. Ring of Fire is doing something for an entirely different ad...

And MOM upside down is WOW, from some other obscure ad.

to the tune of Battle Hymn of the Republic:

I wear my pink pajamas in the summer when it's hot
I wear my flannel nightie in the winter when it's not
And sometimes in the winter
And sometimes in the fall
I jump right into bed
With nothing on at all!

Glory, glory, what's it toooooo ya?
Glory, glory, what's it toooooo ya?
Glory, glory, what's it toooooo ya?
I jump right into bed with nothing on all!

We found this ever so salacious when we were eight or nine years old.....

i haven't seen this ad for decades, but i still remember some of the song for this beverage...

" a rocketship came down from mars
they said it was no fable
(I forget this line)
mabel! black label!"

does anyone know if this was for carling's black label beer, or was it for some other alcoholic beverage?

"Guy came in the night before last,
Said "Need me a twelve pack, and need it fast!"
I said "Whatcha gonna have? It's all right there."
He said "Bud, Strohs, Pabst, I don't care!"

The only line I can remember from this point is the last one,
"I'm sticking with the beer they call Weide-Mann!"

One of my friends did a wicked parody of this with his brother as the main character. Decency keeps me from sharing it with you, but it caused a heck of a fight in the middle of a hockey game back in the 70's. (The rest of us were laughing too hard to break it up and he got his butt kicked.)

I just read through the whole eight pages, and boy it was fun. But there's one jingle we all skipped:

Cream of Wheat is so good to eat
That we have it every day.
It makes us strong as we sing this song
And it makes us shout 'HOORAY'!
It's good for growing babies And grownups, too, to eat,
For all the family's breakfast
You can't beat Cream of Wheat.

I didn't read all eight pages but here are two I remember from the Buffalo, NY area as I was growing up:

I'm the jolly little baker
and you'll find me on the label
of Kaufmans Rye Bread.

Whenever I'm around
you have my gaurantee
that Kaufman's is the rye bread of
the highest quality.

I'm the guy that you should see
so whenever you want quality
It's Kaufman's Rye Bread

and

Cans or drafts or bottles
it's our favorite brew.
We drink Carling Red Cap,
we are drinkers true.

IIRC it's from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", starring Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes. It's been ages since I saw the movie or read the book (written by Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond) but I believe SAH's character was the daughter of a famous candy maker or something like that.

Oh, but there was more to the Paramount song--one of the few jingles from childhood that I can remember:
I'm Slim Chiply the guy you see on the Paramount Potato Chips bright red pack. I'm the flavor deputy, protecting cripsness in every sack. So delicious; so nutritious; yesiree they're pips! Paramount Potato Chips!
Grew up outside of Lansing, Michigan!



One for Paramount Potato Chips I saw some 20 years ago was *so* bizarre I never forgot it - the first part was simply cheap 16mm footage of some kids playing ball with some cheerful martial music soundtrack straight out of an old Japanese monster movie - then there's an abrupt cut to a stiff figurine of an anthropomorphized potato chip in Western gear being shuffled across a screen with some jolly singing cowboy soundtrack, presumably the chip singing although his mouth isn't moving.


Paramount? Home of Slim Chipply?

Do you remember the first ad they had with kids in it? They were playing hockey. My best friend Lorne was in that one. He lived next door to a Paramount exec. I thought it was so cool, then when they filmed the second one, the ones were you see them playing ball? Rememeber the fat kid near the bottom of the screen? That was me.

Anyway, the song went like this:
I'm Slim Chipply, the guy you see on the Paramount potato chip bright red packages. They're delious, and so nutrious, yes sir-ree they're pips! Paramount Potato chips.


Dang! Small world, isn't it?
Well, Slim is the Flavor Deputy, I've heard.

I don't think this one's been up yet.

Oh you need fluff, fluff, fluff to make a fluffer nutter,
Marshmallow fluff and lots of peanut butter.
First you spread, spread, spread your bread
with peanut butter,
Add marshmallow fluff and have a fluffernutter.
When you enjoy, joy, joy your fluff
and peanut butter,
You're glad you have enough for another
fluffernutter.

Someone hit one of the verses of the Narragansett Beer "jingle" (it was closer to a dirge) from the 70s, but I think the main verse was:

I can see the sunlight shining
Over Narragansett Bay
So fill a glass my friend
And talk to me of home, of home.

That replaced their old slogan "Hi Neighbor! Have a "Gansett!"

Most surprisingly offensive I can recall was a radio jingle for a Japanese tuna brand.

Three Diamonds brand, fancy tuna
Fresh as the ocean breeze
It's good for your diet
Clear and mild
And low, low, low in calories
Ah-so! Fine!
