DO YOU REMEMBER THESE?

 

Saturday morning serials chapters 1 through 15

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, snow floats, 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 Kool-Aid, 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 and 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?

 

The boat neck shirts and fender skirts and crinoline petticoats

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

Moon hubcaps 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?

Do we remember these? Yes we do!

Ah, do we, do we remember these!
