With beautiful moss
It grew lovely meatballs
And tomato sauce

So if you like spaghetti
All covered in cheese
Hold onto your meatballs
And don't ever sneeze


And the beer song was one of the funniest things I've ever heard!




Dearfolk,
Y'all have made me laugh until I hurt. Thanks a million for this thread!

If music be the food of love, then play on.

Or should it be, if food be the music of love?

Oh heck, what food these morsels be!

    My dad had unusual ideas about children's rhymes:

    Glory, glory, ever glorious,
    One case of beer among the four of us
    Thank God there ain't any more of us
    Cause we don't give a damn about any damn man
    Who don't give a damn about us

    Lady Godiva through the coventry did ride
    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

      O.K., I see nobody has posted the disgusting stuff. I assume that distinction must go to me. Anybody remember this?

      Great green gobs of
      Greasy grimey gopher guts,
      Moldified monkey meat
      Itsy-bitsy dirty birdie feet.
      Pale pink piles of
      Petrified possom poop
      And I forgot my spoon...DOGGONE IT!

        Grampy,

        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.

          Pwingsx:

          Yes, we had one halvah time growing up. At least there was Mad to see us through, and recall how many songs they altered?

          From West Side Story:
          "When you use Crest, you use Crest all the way."
          Then, Ben Franklin singing:
          "Tonight, tonight, I'm sending up a kite.
          My friends all think that I am insane."

            Grampy,

            I even bought the cd collection of Mad from Broderbund. I was hooked, absolutely HOOKED on Dave Berg's "Lighter Side of....". In fact, I think I'll load it up right now!

                After checking all the posts:

                LS/MFT
                Loose suspenders means Falling Trousers
                or
                Loose sweaters means Floppy T*ts

                and
                Get off the table, Mabel;
                The quarter is for the beer {my Dad was a big Carling's man}

                  Down, down, down-the stomach through
                  Round, round, round the system, too
                  With Alka-Seltzer you'll surely say,
                  "Relief is just a swallow away."


                  "I can't believe I ate the whole thing."
                  "You ate it, Ralph."

                  "Try it...you'll like it."
                  "I tried it....hand me an Alka-Seltzer."

                    Eat too much?
                    Drink too much?
                    Try Brioschi,
                    Take Brioschi.

                              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.

                                    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...

                                        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*!!!"


                                        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.

                                                        The eatable, tweetable treats!
                                                        Was Toot Sweets a real product or just the subject of a song in a movie (the name of which escapes me, but I think involved Dick Van Dyke)?
                                                        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!
