Do You Remember These Lyrics - The Statler Brothers

Review The Song (6)

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,
Shticks, snow globes, 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 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
Injun 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 remember these!

Witch at the county fair??? | Reviewer: Jim | 7/2/14

It's the "Whip" at the county fair. The Whip was a ride that went along an oblong island. When you reached the end of the island the tether line would "whip" you faster, thus the name.

Correction to corrections | Reviewer: A F Ticker | 1/4/10

"It's GRAPE Kool-Aid." Sorry but it is Grape Tru-Ade a non-carbonated soft drink. It was made in orange as well but Grape was the favorite of most folks in the early 50's. Aimee is correct. I remember buying and drinking many bottles of grape Tru-Ade purchased for a nickle.

As far as pegging your pants, that too is correct, "egg in your pants", where did that come from? .It was actually tapering the legs of the pants to a point to where it was almost impossible to get your foot through them. The taper started at the knees and went to the ankles. That became the rage in the mid 50's. If one goes back in history they can find pegged pants were also popular in the 20's.

Boatneck shirts is correct in the song. They are still available and still worn. Supposedly they were to "broaden" the look of the shoulders.

Awww, but I remember these. I am a product of the era of this song. Times were simpler then but just as exciting.

only one correction needed | Reviewer: Aimee | 6/27/08

Hi. This song recounts memories of the author from the 1940's and 50's. Kool-Aid has been around that long, however, there was in fact, a drink called TruAde popular during that time period. It came in grape and orange flavors. It is not mispronounced in the song.
Pegging your pants, (NOT eggs!!!) was done by folding over, then cuffing the bottoms of the pants legs so that they fit snuggly around the ankle. Popular in the 1950's, re-emerged in the 1980's.
The only "tabote" I can find is a place in Africa! Boat neck shirts are still worn today. Maybe they first appeared in the '40's or 50's.

Do You Remeber These? Corrections | Reviewer: Don | 12/4/07

It's GRAPE Kool-Aid. It's being mispronounced in the song. Grape Kool-Aid sold for about a nickel. You would rip the package open, wet your finger and stick it in the package and then lick it off your finger. It was the ultimate “sweet and sour” fix for a young kid. It was eventually replaced by Sweetarts. Grape Kool-Aid had a greater kick than any other flavor.
It’s EGG in your pants. You’d get a raw egg, sneak up behind someone in school and drop it down his pants, and then give him a swift kick in the butt.

correction & no I have not previously submitted corrections as your bot claims. | Reviewer: Mike Gibson | 10/24/07

It's "tabote neck shirts" [as worn in the south by cajun Rock & Roll and jazz singers] "White Bucks" [Shoes] and "polock" jokes. Heck even the electric company pounds pole in the ground.

maybe some corrections | Reviewer: Zeke | 4/22/07

line 1: 1 thru 13 rymes better than fifteen, that's too long

Your Hit Parade with Snooky Lanson et cetera GRAPE KOOL-AID...............and peggin your pants (from zoot suits)
