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?
