Not a song, but the Mickey D's jingle:  Bah bah bah bah bah...... I'm lovin' it!.. I swear that was stuck in my head for over a year, thanks to a girl that used to say that all the time!

This is the song that doesn't end,
It just goes on and on my friend,
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
And they'll just go on singing it forever just because,
This is the song that doesn't end . .

Tonight-  June 16th, Jan and I will do a dinner and "Concert in the Park" evening at the Henderson,KY Blues and BBQ Festival. It is ZEDECO NIGHT. Red Beans and Rice will be served and the night will echo with the Cajun, Creole, and Blues Bands playing in the park beside the Ohio River. We enjoy doing the lawn-chair thing, sitting in the mild air in the park, and will probably not be able to get the Cajun washboard and accordion rhythms out of our head for several days.

There are several versions of this one:
Up in the air junior birdman
Up in the air upside down
Up in the air junior birdman
Keep your noses off the ground
When you hear the grand announcement
that your wings are made of tin.
Then you know that Junior Birdman,
has turned his box tops in.*

For it takes: 5 box tops,
4 bottle bottoms,
3 coupons,
2 wrappers,
and one thin dime!
The Junior Birdmen of America site link seems to me the most authoritative source of information about the true beginnings of the song. Although it's possible that the song may have been featured on"Captain Video" in the 1950s, it appears to have originated in the 1930s among model aviation enthusiasts, as a parody of the Army Air Corps song "Into the Air, Army Air Corps." The Army Air Corps was the predecessor to the U.S. Air Force, and the song was altered accordingly, becoming "Into the Air, U.S. Air Force." The "Junior Birdmen" version, after having been created by airplane model-makers, was used in jest by actual aviators in World War II, and later in Air Force ROTC training. Finally it became a campfire song popular among Boy Scouts.
