Saturday morning serials
Chapters one through fifteen
Fly paper, penny loafers, and lucky strike green
Flat tops, sock hops, Studebaker, “Pepsi, please”
Ah, do you remember these?
Cigar bands on your hands
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 truaide, the Sadie Hawkins dance
Peddle pushers, duck tail hair, and peggin’ your pants
Howdy doody
Tootie fruitie
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 boogie man, lemonade stand and taking your tonsils out
Indian burn and wait your turn and four foul balls
You’re out!
Cigarette loads and secret codes and saving lucky stars
Can you remember back that far?
To boat neck shirts and fender skirts and crinoline petticoats
Mums the word and dirty bird and double root beer float
Moon hubcaps and loud heel taps and “he’s a real gone cat”
Ah, do you remember that?
Dancing close, little moron jokes and “cooties” in her hair
Captain midnight, ovaltine, and the whip at the county fair
Charles atlas course, Roy Rogers horse, and “only the shadow
Ah, do you remember those?
Gables charms, “froggin” your arm, loud mufflers, pitching woo
Going steady, veronica and betty, white bucks and blue suede shoes
Knock, knock jokes
Who’s there?
Dewey who?
Remember these
Yes we do!
Oh do we?
Do we remember these!
