Johnny Cash had a dud called "Red Velvet" that even he didn't like.
"Does your chewing gum lose it's flavor on the bedpost overnight" was a song that I doubt that anyone who had heard it could ne'er forget.
But, the one that really brings a tear to my left eye and a welt on my rear was the "laughing song." The part that went, "the apple butter paddle is all in splinters now, mother wore it out a tinklin' me," brings back tons of practical remembrances. But, as I distinctly recall, it was my Grandmother, who wielded the famed paddle with much exuberance, and my Grandfather who loved to sing the derned song.
One song that I really loved was "Gonna find me a bluebird" by Marvin Rainwater. I think that he did sing other songs; but this is the one that i remember the best.
That song has always been a favorite of mine!
Another one of his that I enjoy is from the movie "High Noon"!
I like "The Shortest Song In The World", by Kenny Price. I first heard this on a morning radio show, as a fill in.
I've always liked Hank Snow.
Another of Rodger's songs, is this obscure one....
when ever my wife or i mess up we sing it
This was a a tear jerker when I was young!
This is the version I remember:
Now here is one that I was happy to forget!
I think we need lyrics for that one!
"The Name Game"
The name game!
Shirley, Shirley bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley
Fee fy mo Mirley, Shirley!
Lincoln, Lincoln bo Bincoln Bonana fanna fo Fincoln
Fee fy mo Mincoln, Lincoln!
Come on everybody!
I say now let's play a game
I betcha I can make a rhyme out of anybody's name
The first letter of the name, I treat it like it wasn't there
But a B or an F or an M will appear
And then I say bo add a B then I say the name and Bonana fanna and a
And then I say the name again with an F very plain
and a fee fy and a mo
And then I say the name again with an M this time
and there isn't any name that I can't rhyme
Arnold, Arnold bo Barnold Bonana fanna fo Farnold
Fee fy mo Marnold Arnold!
But if the first two letters are ever the same,
I drop them both and say the name like
Bob, Bob drop the B's Bo ob
For Fred, Fred drop the F's Fo red
For Mary, Mary drop the M's Mo ary
That's the only rule that is contrary.
Okay? Now say Bo: Bo
Now Tony with a B: Bony
Then Bonana fanna fo: bonana fanna fo
Then you say the name again with an F very plain: Fony
Then a fee fy and a mo: fee fy mo
Then you say the name again with an M this time: Mony
And there isn't any name that you can't rhyme
Every body do Tony!
Pretty good, let's do Billy!
Very good, let's do Marsha!
A little trick with Nick!
The name game
I can sure live without the Name song, too, Richard ! I remember it; and didn't miss that one a bit when it faded away.
Frankie Laine, on the other hand; I always liked. When i was little, my most favorite song was "Mule Train" , sang by Frankie Laine.
Walter Brennan had a big hit with Dutchman's Gold, and maybe a couple more that he sang; but they are not played much anymore either.
