    Default A Memory For Kids Of The 60's ---- LOL

    The other day my husband put together an old stereo system. It has a turntable & you can put in CDs or tapes. He wanted to see how well the turntable sounded, so put on an old album of his. --it was made in 1964 --Snoopy and the Red Baron. We laughed & sang along. Remember?

    After the turn of the century
    in the clear blue skies over Germany
    Came a roar and a thounder men had never heard
    Like the sreamin' sound of a big war bird

    Up in the sky, a man in a plane
    Baron Von Richthofen was his name
    Eighty men tried and eighty men died
    Now they're buried together on the contryside

    Ten, Tenty, Thirty, Forty, Fifty or more
    The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' up the score
    Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
    Of the Blood Red Baron of Germany

    In the nick of time a hero arose
    A funny-lookin' dog with a big black nose
    He flew into the sky to seek revenge
    But the Baron shot him down "Curses Foiled Again"

    Now Snoopy had sworn that he'd get that man
    So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan
    He chalenged the German to a real dogfight
    While the Baron was laughin', he got him in his sight

    That Bloody Red Baron was in a fix
    He'd tried everything, but he'd run out of tricks
    Snoopy fired once, and he fired twice
    And that Bloody Red Baron went spin'n out of site

    Sorry, I can't recall it, but my younger cousin must have been inspired by it and Snoopy. He'd wear a dry T-shirt or towel around his neck while water skiing & then try to blitz the rest of us. He usually won.

    I remember it really well. I remember seeing them (The Royal Guardsmen) at The Red Rooster in Indiana, Pa. back in the late '60's; with my sisters & cousins. One of the members of the band made all the sound effects himself with his mouth (machine gun & airplane sounds). The sounds were so real.
    Now, the only time I hear it is around Christmas time on the radio. Thanks for the memories.

    I don't recall that song but I have some record albums dating back to the 1950s. When I was a kid, records were on 78 rpm discs and the really old ones had grooves only on one side.

    And then there were the 45s. That was what you collected when I was a teenager. I had 45s of lots of Elvis records. I should have hung onto them.

    I remember it! And our radio station plays it every Christmas, because it is a Christmas song. (the verse goes on to sing about Christmas bells ringing throughout the land). What a fun memory!

    You hear it lots of places at Xmas time. Radio, backgruond music in a store or such. A few days after my husband played it, I heard it on the radio. The "DJs" were talking & laughing then together sang that "Ten, Twenty, Thirty, Fourty, Fifty or more".
