Lolly Lolly Lolly Get Your Egg Burps Here…

Ok, I have more Youtube fun to offer for your enjoyment today. When I was little, there was this educational ad that played on TV. I think they played it during Saturday morning cartoons or something. I liked the tune, and I would sing along with it. Here’s the kicker: I thought they were singing about something completely different than what they were really singing about. The ad has some people in a store singing about adverbs. They sang “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get Your Adverbs Here…” This is the only part of the song that I “knew the words” to. Obviously I was not paying enough attention to the ad. What I sang was “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get Your Egg Burps Here…” I know now that there is a distinct difference between an adverb and an egg burp, and I think if I had paid more attention to the ad when I was little, I may have figured it out then, too. And here is the ad for your viewing pleasure!

  1. LOL! I misheard a lot of songs as a kid too (and still do today). I used to think the song “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” contained the lyrics: “Christmas Eve will find me/Wet, alone, likely.” Yeeeeeah. It’s not even close to the actual lyric, “Where the love light beams.” Anyway, thanks for the giggle 😀

  2. That is too funny! Thank you for sharing such a cute childhood memory.
