Do You Remember These
The Statler Brothers 1972
  (Dance Ranch 606)   Barry Medford


Sides face grand square
Saturday morning serials, chapters one through fifteen
Fly paper, penny loafers, Lucky Strike Green

*Flat tops, 'n' sock hops, Studebaker, Pepsi, please
Ah, do you remember?

Allemande left and you weave the ring
*Cigar bands on your hands, your daddy's socks rolled down
Dosado, back to back, promenade around
*Why movie stars on dixie cup tops, 'n' knickers to your knees
Ah, do you remember these?

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 you'll roll away and now box the gnat
1/2 square thru the other way back and eight chain thru like that
*Mum's the word, and he's a dirty bird
'N' do a double root beer float
Ah, do you remember those?

Swing and whirl with the corner girl and you go left allemande
Come on back 'n' promenade go walking hand in hand
*Cracker Jack prize, stars in your eyes
Ask daddy for the keys
Ah, do you remember these?


*The hit parade, grape true aid, the Sadie Hawkins dance
Pedal pushers, ducktail hair, peg in your pants

*Howdy Doody, tutti frutti, the seam up the back of her hose
To boat neck shirts, fender skirts and crenoline petticoats

*Well moon hub caps 'n' loud heel taps 'n' he's a real gone cat
Dancin' close, little moron jokes, and cooties in her hair
Captain Midnight, Ovaltine, whip at the county fair

*Charles Atlas course, Roy Rogers' horse, 'n' only the Shadow knows
Gables charms, frog in your arm, loud mufflers pitchin' woo

Knock, knock jokes, and "who's there", "Dewey", "Dewey who?"
Do we remember these? Yes, we do, do we remember these?

Cigarette loads, secret codes and saving lucky stars
Boogie man, lemonade stands and takin' your tonsils out

Hindenberg and wait your turn and four foul ball, you're out
Senior prom, Judy's mom and rock 'n' roll was new

Sticks, snow floats, 'n' aviator caps with flaps that button down
Goin' steady, Veronica and Betty, white bucks 'n' blue suede shoes
