Burma-Shave

A Christmas hug
A birthday kiss
Awaits
The woman
Who gives this
Burma-Shave

Just spread
Then pat
Now shave
That's
That
Burma-Shave

1941

Here's
A good deed
For a scout
Tell your dad
All about
Burma-Shave

They missed
The turn
Car was whizz'n
Fault was her'n
Funeral his'n
Burma-Shave

Tell
The dear
Who shops around
That half a buck
Buys half a pound
Burma-Shave

She kissed
The hairbrush
By mistake
She thought it was
Her husband Jake
Burma-Shave

He used
Umbrella
For parachute
Now rejects
Every substitute
Burma-Shave

Don't stick
Your elbow
Out so far
It might go home
In another car
Burma-Shave

Soldier
Sailor
And marine
Now get a shave
That's quick and clean
Burma-Shave

Remember this
If you'd
Be spared
Trains don't whistle
Because they're scared
Burma-Shave

When better
Shaving brushes
Are made
We'll still shave
Without their aid
Burma-Shave

When junior takes
Your ties
And car
It's time to buy
An extra jar
Burma-Shave

Gets each
Whisker
At the base
No ingrown hair
On neck or face
Burma-Shave

If man bites doggie
That is news
If face
Scares doggie
Better use
Burma-Shave

At intersections
Look each way
A harp sounds nice
But it's
Hard to play
Burma-Shave

Life is sweet
But oh how bitter!
To love a gal
And then
Not git 'er
Burma-Shave

Trains don't wander
All over the map
For no one
Sits on
The engineer's lap
Burma-Shave

When Peter Piper
Pickle picker
Kissed his gal
His beard
Would prick 'er
Burma-Shave

The answer to
A maiden's prayer
Is a man
Most anywhere
Using
Burma-Shave

Rhyme and reason
Every season
You've read
The rhyme
Now try the reason
Burma-Shave

Wild
Dashes
From by-ways
Cause crashes
On highways
Burma-Shave

Substitutes
Resemble
Tail-chasing pup
Follow and follow
But never catch up
Burma-Shave

From
Bar
To Car
To
Gates ajar
Burma-Shave

If every sip
Fills you
With zip
Then your sipper
Needs a zipper
Burma-Shave

Broken romance
Stated fully
She went wild
When he
Went wooly
Burma-Shave

1942

Pa likes the cream
Ma likes the jar
Both like
The price
So there you are
Burma-Shave

Brother speeders
Let's
Rehearse
All together
"Good morning, Nurse!"
Burma-Shave

'Mid rising
Taxes
Soaring rents
Still half a pound
For fifty cents
Burma-Shave

Approached
A crossing
Without looking
Who will eat
His widow's cooking?
Burma-Shave

Drove too long
Driver snoozing
What happened next
Is not
Amusing
Burma-Shave

Stores are full
Of shaving aids
But all you need
Is this
And blades
Burma-Shave

Pa acted
So tickled
Ma thot
He was pickled
He'd just tried
Burma-Shave

Iceman's grandson
Now full grown
Has cooling system
All his own
He uses
Burma-Shave

If you
Don't know
Whose signs
These are
You can't have
Driven very far
Burma-Shave

Let's make Hitler
And Hirohito
Look as sick as
Old Benito
Buy defense bonds
Burma-Shave

Can't shave daily?
Tender hide?
Now be honest
Have you
Tried
Burma-Shave

There's no whisker
It won't soften
Shave 'em close
And not
So often
Burma-Shave

If hugging
On highways
Is your sport
Trade in your car
For a davenport
Burma-Shave

Shaving brush
In army pack
Was straw that broke
The rookie's back
Use brushless
Burma-Shave

A girl
Should hold on
To her youth
But not
When he's driving
Burma-Shave

Maybe you can't
Shoulder a gun
But you can shoulder
The cost of one
Buy defense bonds
Burma-Shave

Of all
The drunks
Who drive on Sunday
Some are stil
Alive on Monday
Burma-Shave

"At ease," she said
"Maneuvers begin
When you get
Those whiskers
Off your chin"
Burma-Shave

Substitutes
Like unseen barter
Often make one
Sad
But smarter
Burma-Shave

Traveling men
Know ease
And speed
Their shaving kits
Hold what they need
Burma-Shave

What you shouted
May be true,
But
Did you hear
What he called you?
Burma-Shave

Buying defense bonds
Means money lent
So they
Don't cost you
One red cent
Burma-Shave

To most brush shavers
It's quite clear
The yanks aren't coming
The yanks are here
Use brushless
Burma-Shave

1943

Every shaver
Now can snore
Six more minutes
Than before
By using
Burma-Shave

One pound jar 85c
Half pound jar 50c
Big tube 35c
Don't put it off

Above the collar
Burma-Shave

Shaving brushes
You'll soon see 'em
On the shelf
In some
Museum
Burma-Shave

Does your husband
Misbehave
Grunt and grumble
Rant and rave
Shoot the brute some
Burma-Shave

It's a good
Old Spanish custom
Take your mug
And brush
And bust 'em
Burma-Shave

Early to bed
Early to rise
Was meant for those
Old fashioned guys
Who don't use
Burma-Shave

Within this vale
Of toil
And sin
Your head grows bald
But not your chin -- Use
Burma-Shave

The cannoneers
With hairy ears
On wiry whiskers
Used tin shears
Until they found
Burma-Shave

Film protects
Your neck
And chin
So your razor
Won't dig in
Burma-Shave

Tho tough
And rough
From wind and wave
Your cheek grows sleek
With
Burma-Shave

Many a wolf
Is never let in
Because of the hair
On his
Chinny-chin-chin
Burma-Shave

1945

She raised cain
When he raised stubble
Guess what
Smoothed away
Their trouble?
Burma-Shave

Big mistake
Many make
Rely on horn
Instead of
Brake
Burma-Shave

From statistics
That we gather
The swing is to
No brush
No lather
Burma-Shave

No man can really
Do his stuff
With a face that's sore
Or a chin
That's rough
Burma-Shave

First men buy it
Then apply it
Then advise
Their friends
To try it
Burma-Shave

If these
Signs blur
And bounce around
You'd better park
And walk to town
Burma-Shave

This is not
A clever verse
I tried
And tried
But just
Got worse

You can beat
A mile a minute
But there ain't
No future
In it
Burma-Shave

Sleep in a chair
Nothing to lose
But a nap
At the wheel
Is a permanent snooze
Burma-Shave

Life with father
Is more pleasant
Since
He got this
Birthday present
Burma-Shave

To a substitute
He gave a trial
It took off
Nothing
But his smile
Burma-Shave

It spreads so smooth
It shaves so slick
It feels
Like velvet
And it's quick
Burma-Shave

'Twould be
More fun
To go by air
If we could put
These signs up there
Burma-Shave

His line was smooth
But not his chin
He took her out
She took him in
To buy some
Burma-Shave

Drinking drivers
Enhance their
Chance
To highball home
In an ambulance
Burma-Shave

Why does a chicken
Cross the street?
She sees a guy
She'd like to meet
He uses
Burma-Shave

The chick
He wed
Let out a whoop
Felt his chin and
Flew the coop
Burma-Shave

Tested
In peace
Proven in war
Better now
Than ever before
Burma-Shave

Both hands
On wheel
Eyes on road
That's the skillful
Driver's code
Burma-Shave

1947

You've used
Our cream
Now try our blades
Pair up the best
In shaving aids

To gain a minute
You need your head
Your brains are in it
Burma-Shave

That she
Could cook
He had his doubts
Until she creamed
His bristle sprouts with
Burma-Shave

Famous last words
"If he won't
Dim his
I won't
Dim mine"
Burma-Shave

The wolf
Who longs
To roam and prowl
Should shave before
He starts to howl

Car in ditch
Driver in tree
Moon was full

You must choose
Give him

Delivers a boy

You love that gal
But use both hands
For driving, pal

Led to a
Warmer hemisphere

It's not
How fast or slow
You drive
The question is
How you arrive
Burma-Shave

A man who passes
On hills and curves
Is not a man
Of iron nerves--
He's crazy!
Burma-Shave

I've read
These signs
Since just a kid
Now that I shave
I'm glad I did
Burma-Shave

We don't
Know how
To split an atom
But as to whiskers
Let us at 'em
Burma-Shave

Paper hangers
With the hives
Now can
Shave with
Carving knives
Burma-Shave

Their whiskers out

(Don't know what happened to '54. -- dkg)

1955

Dinah doesn't
Treat him right
But if he'd
Shave
Dyna-mite!
Burma-Shave

To change that
Shaving job
To joy
You gotta use
The real McCoy
Burma-Shave

Tho stiff
The beard
That Nature gave
It shaves
Like down with
Burma-Shave

His crop of
Whiskers
Needed reaping
That's what kept
His Lena leaping
Burma-Shave

The blackened forest
Smoulders yet
Because
He flipped
A cigaret
Burma-Shave

Jar so big
Cost so small
Coolest
Smoothest
Shave of all
Burma-Shave

Slow down, Pa
Sakes alive
Ma missed signs
Four
And five
Burma-Shave

Grandpa knows
It ain't too late
He's gone
To git
Some widder bait
Burma-Shave

Free--free
A trip
To Mars
For 900
Empty jars
Burma-Shave

A Christmas hug
A birthday kiss
Awaits
The woman
Who gives this
Burma-Shave

The big blue tube's
Just like Louise
You get
A thrill
From every squeeze
Burma-Shave

The monkey took
One look at Jim
And threw the peanuts
Back at him
He needed
Burma-Shave

Substitutes
Can let you down
Quicker
Than a
Strapless gown
Burma-Shave

For shaving comfort
Without
A sting
That big blue tube
Has everything
Burma-Shave

6 million housewives
Can't be wrong
Who keep
Their husbands
Right along in
Burma-Shave

Try a tube
Its cooling
Power
Refreshes like
An April shower
Burma-Shave

One shave lasts
All day through
Face feels
Cool and
Smoother too
Burma-Shave

Within this vale
Of toil
And sin
Your head grows bald
But not your chin
Burma-Shave

Take
Your
Time
Not
Your life
Burma-Shave

Cattle crossing
Means go slow
That old bull
Is some
Cow's beau
Burma-Shave

Does your husband
Misbehave
Grunt and grumble
Rant and rave?
Shoot the brute some
Burma-Shave

Meanwhile, four years later...

1959

The draftee
Tried a tube
And purred
Well whaddya know
I've been defurred
Burma-Shave

This cooling shave
Will never fail
To stamp
Its user
First class male
Burma-Shave

Drinking drivers--
Nothing worse
They put
The quart
Before the hearse

Men
With whiskers
'Neath their noses
Oughta have to kiss
Like eskimoses
Burma-Shave

Said farmer Brown
Who's bald
On top
Wish I could
Rotate the crop
Burma-Shave

Don't
Try passing
On a slope
Unless you have
A periscope
Burma-Shave

Passing cars
When you can't see
May get you
A glimpse
Of eternity
Burma-Shave

Don't leave safety
To mere chance
That's why
Belts are
Sold with pants
Burma-Shave

At a quiz
Pa ain't
No whiz
But he knows how
To keep Ma his
Burma-Shave

Many a forest
Used to stand
Where a
Lighted match
Got out of hand
Burma-Shave

Baby your skin
Keep it fitter
Or "baby"
Will get
Another sitter
Burma-Shave

Use this cream
A day
Or two
Then don't call her--
She'll call you
Burma-Shave

The poorest guy
In the
Human race
Can have a
Million dollar face
Burma-Shave

If daisies
Are your
Favorite flower
Keep pushin' up those
Miles-per-hour
Burma-Shave

He lit a match
To check gas tank
That's why
They call him
Skinless frank
Burma-Shave

The one who
Drives when
He's been drinking
Depends on you
To do his thinking
Burma-Shave

1960

This cream
Is like
A parachute
There isn't
Any substitute
Burma-Shave

Tempted to try it?
Follow your hunch
Be "Top Banana"
Not one
Of the bunch
Burma-Shave

Bristles scratched
His cookie's map
That's what
Made poor
Ginger snap
Burma-Shave

We've made Grandpa
Look so youthful
His pension board
Thinks
He's untruthful
Burma-Shave

Use our cream
And we betcha
Girls won't wait
They'll come
And getcha
Burma-Shave

Henry the Eighth
Sure had
Trouble
Short term wives
Long term stubble

Who guard you
When you drive
Usually
Reture at 65
Burma-Shave

Forest fires
Start from scratch
So think before
You toss
That match
Burma-Shave

Dim your lights
Behind a car
Let folks see
How bright
YOU are
Burma-Shave

Thirty days
Hath September

Speed offender

Their product good
But ours

You think it should

Ben
Met Anna
Made a hit
Neglected beard

Drowsy?
Just remember, pard
That marble slab
Is doggone
Hard

Statistics prove
Near and far
That folks who
Drive like crazy
--Are!
Burma-Shave

Dear lover boy,
Your photo came
But your doggone beard
Won't fit
The frame
Burma-Shave

This will never
Come to pass
A back-seat
Driver
Out of gas
Burma-Shave

1963, the end of an era

Don't lose
Your head
To gain a minute
You need your head
Your brains are in it
Burma-Shave

If a gift
You must choose
Give him one
He'll like
To use
Burma-Shave

Pedro
Walked
Back home, by golly
His bristly chin
Was hot-to-Molly
Burma-Shave

If our road signs
Catch your eye
Smile

To buy

When the stork
Delivers a boy
OUr whole
Darn factory
Jumps for joy

Your neck
And chin
So your razor
Won't dig in

A shave
That's real
No cuts to heal
A soothing
Velvet after-feel
Burma-Shave

If hugging
On highways
Is your sport
Trade in your car
For a davenport
Burma-Shave

In cupid's little
Bag of trix
Here's the one
That clix
With chix

To middle-aisle it
Must never scratch
