our version, as I remember from 5th grade:
Great Green Gobs

I never knew ours was abridged. You learn something new every day.

Just noticed the Provel thread is active again. No offense to the fans, but it always reminds me of:

There's no single cheese like Velveeta
Cause Velveeta is more than one single cheese
Like colby swiss and cheddar
Blended all together
For a (something) taste that melts with ease
Velveeta Processed Cheese Spread
(it goes on, but it's all a gooey blur ending something like
It's just so great when they clean their plate
There's no single cheese like Velveeta)

Ours was a little different from either of yours

Great big gobs of greasy grimy gopher gut
Mutilated monkey meat
Little Tiny Birdies Feet
Eyeballs swimming in a great big pot of blood
And I forgot my spoon
But I broght my straw

One taste will tell
That Maurice Lenell
Makes cookies
That are really good.

My favorite are the ML cookies with a drop of red, hard jelly in the middle. I'll bet Tsores's favorite ML is the round cookie with the red & brown swirls in the center.

Living in NY years ago, use to hear this:
"The beer born high in the Atarondacks
UC, UC, Utica Club"
and at Christmas always heard:
"We're doing our Christmas Shopping at Robert Hall's This Year"
Don't know why, but for some reason these 2 jingles have been stuck in my mind for about 50 years now. Go figure! I have been living in AL for 45 years and have never had a Utica Club or set foot in a Robert Hall's.

For an Oregon beer that was brewed in Portland, Blitz Weinhard:

Got a snow-capped mountain outside my door.
Got a beer called Blitz, don't need no more.
Got two good reasons for livin' here,
The best country in the country and the country's best beer.

Here's a tune I remember from some movie or TV show, and I can't remember where. Maybe someone here will know of it.

"There's always the good guys and the bad guys
Some things will never change
There's still sherriffs in New York and outlaws on
the range
They're still hanging them in Utah for breaking the law
Still burning their stills in Arkansas..."

How about Bucky Beaver singing:

Brusha, brusha, brusha
Here's the new Ipana
With the brand new flavor
It's dandy for your teeth!

But what I really miss are the Burma Shave signs. We'd watch for them all the way down US 25 on our way to Florida. Does anyone remember any of the Burma shave "poems"?

I always heard the Blatz song as "Its Draft Brewed Blatz Beer,wherever you go"
And we once were forced to buy a half barrel of Blatz because it was the only half barrel left in Madison,when the badgers broke their 18 game long football losing streak at Homecoming in 1969 by beating the Iowa Hawkeyes.We tried to tear down the goalpost but the damn thing was reinforced somehow and wouldnt come down.And the Blatz was terrible,but after drinking enough of it it did its job.i will never forget that day/night.
Now my favorite Burma Shave poem,circa 1961 or so,seen deep in Tennessee:
"He lit a match
To check gas tank
Thats why they call him
Skinless Frank!
Burma Shave"

I want Fritos cornchips
I'll get them from you!

And you guys have got it all wrong, plus you're forgetting the very first line:

Boys are full of
greasy grimy gopher guts
chopped up monkey meat
contaminated parakeet

And I can't remember the rest...

Re: Burma-Shave:
I just remember this thread today when I spotted a book on a coworker's desk: "The Verse by the Side of the Road" by Frank Rowsome, Jr. (Stephen Greene Press, Brattleboro, VT 1965). It's got a history of the Burma-Shave company and its sign business, and the text to all 600 of the signs. No idea if it's still in print, but good luck!

Roadfolks,

Thanks so much for the Burma Shave responses. They made me smile. 6star, thank you so much for the link! It brings back lots of fond memories of driving to St. Petersburg. My Dad, whose unrealized goal was to make it from Cincinnati to St. Pete in one day, would slow down long enough for us to read those signs. Probably saved our lives. Vince, I'll look for that book.

Thanks again, one and all!

"Give your face,
Something to smile about.
With Striiiiiidex!"


Betcha never even heard of Janie Fricke. She used to sing a lot of jingles in the seventies.

I was dragged to a Barry Manilow concert and he sang one:

If you wanna use Vick's when you gotta cold
You gotta know where it goes!
(crescendo)Stick it UP YOUR NOSE!

Can you believe the people who make Vick's rejected such a masterpiece?

That brings back some fond memories of Marine Boot Camp (has anyone else posted those words in that context?)

We had a cadence that went:

The prettiest girl I ever saw
was sipping bourbon through a straw

{I'm going to omit most of following verses for the sake of the, uh, more chaste readers, except the very last one.)

The moral of my tale is clear
Instead of bourbon stick to beer!

Coming from Milwaukee, WI, where Stroh's was brewed (don't know or care if it still is) I rather liked Alex, the Golden Retriever. He did a bunch of imitations by walking offstage and, after another dog came on, the guys would holler, "It's Lassie (Benji and Snoopy). When the pit bull came onstage, the guys all were confused.

Is there a reason why you don't combine some of your posts, so as to reduce the amount of space they consume? You are the only poster on this page (Page 10) with 16 posts AND 6 more at the bottom of the previous page.. They could be combined easily using the edit button. Please consider using that device.

I do appreciate your cooperation, Thanks

How about this one that I used to hear when I lived in Los Angeles:
"Got too many tickets and a 502 (DUI)
Won't somebody tell me what i ought to do,
Can't get car insurance and it just ain't right
My baby won't go out on a Saturday night,
Keep tryin to win but I 'm about to lose,
Got to be a cure for the insurance blues......"
