Maybe you can finally solve the old debate on what the "Winkie" soldiers were actually chanting.



"All we own we owe her"?
"Oh we love the old one"?
"Oh we loath the old one"?
"O-EoYo-Eeo-Yah"?

There we’re many songs that folks didn’t quite understand the words to- the opening song for “All In The Family” had to be printed in TV Guide because of all the complaints of not “getting” some of the phrases…ie..
“ Boy, the way Glen Miller played!
(Songs that made The Hit Parade)
Guys, like us, we had it made—
Those were the days.
And you knew who you were, then—
Girls were girls and men were men-
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again—
Didn’t need no ‘welfare state’-
Everybody pulled his weight—
[ ye yah yah yah…..**)

No one could tell what Archie and Edith sang in this line, but it was:

Gee, our old LaSalle ran great-
Those were the days”

In the wizard of Oz, “Ding dong, the witch is dead” is hard to understand—
She’s gone away in a puff of smoke below, below……” is hard to understand, but it’s in an earlier stage try- out as:

She swept away in a cloud of smoke below, below where goblins go…”

There was a song back in 1963, "Louie Louie", by the Kingsmen that created a lot of controversy about the lyrics. Supposedly some of the lyrics were considered "dirty" at the time. I think but not sure it was banned on some places. I don't know if they ever figured out just what the lyrics were.

Because interracial relationships were not approved at all then, AND, the song was considered “erotic” ie

“She was black, as the night, Louie was whiter than white…
Danger, danger, when you taste brown sugar, Louie
Fell in love overnight…”

That's a new one . I always thought it was because it contained the "F" word.

I came across this while looking for a clip of the Winkies. Thought it was pretty cute. No disrespect intended for the RF, they probably would have gotten a kick out of it as well!

Is this an offshoot of the Freemasons? dunno

I didn’t see where it contained the “f” word— I’ll try to perve the quotation again…

I just ‘perused’ every possible lyrics genre, concerning this particular song. NO WHERE does it even remotely allude to the “F” word. I’m beginning to think that’s an urban legend. However, I’m open- minded. Prove me wrong. I’m game…prove it, prove it…..
