Do You Remember These?

(Music:  "Do You Remember These?" by The Statler Brothers)

 

 

Saturday morning serials - chapters one through fifteen

  

(Green Lantern)


Fly paper, penny loafers, Lucky Strike Green

       


Flat tops, sock hops, Studebaker, "Pepsi, please"

         


Ah, do you remember these
?

 


Cigar bands on your hand, your daddy's socks rolled down

      


Sticks, no plugs, and aviator caps with flaps that button down


Movie stars on Dixie Cup tops and knickers to your knees

   


Ah, do you remember these
?



The hit parade, grape Tru Ade, The Sadie Hawkins Dance

              


Pedal pushers, duck tail hair, and peggin' your pants

      


Howdy Doody, Tutti Frutti, the seam up the back of her hose

      


Ah, do you remember those
?

 


James Dean, he was "keen", Sunday movies were taboo


The Senior Prom, Judy's mom, rock'n'roll was new

   


Cracker Jack prize, stars in your eyes, "Ask daddy for the keys"

        


Ah, do you remember these
?



The boogey man, lemonade stand, and takin' your tonsils out

        


Indian burn, and wait your turn, and four foul balls you're out

     


Cigarette loads, and secret codes, and savin' Lucky Stars

    


Can you remember back that far
?

 


To boat neck shirts, and fender skirts, and crinoline petticoats

     


Mum's the word, and a dirty bird, and a double root beer float


Moon hub caps, and loud heel taps, and "He's a real gone cat"

     


Ah, do you remember that
?



Dancin' close, little moron jokes, and cooties in her hair

    


Captain Midnight, Ovaltine, and The Whip at the County Fair

        


Charles Atlas Course, Roy Roger's Horse, and "Only The Shadow knows"

       


Ah, do you remember those?

 

Gable's charm, "froggin" your arm, loud mufflers, pitchin' woo

        

 
Going steady, Veronica and Betty, white bucks, and blue suede shoes

      


Knock Knock jokes, "Who's there? Dewey. Dewey who?"


Dewey remember these, yes we do; ah do we, do we remember these?
