Monday’s blog fired-up my noggin’! Today on All Things Fulfilling, I’ll share tunes that baby boomers will have fun recollecting.
I’ll bet this image piqued your memory. If you are a baby boomer, you’ll remember LP albums and 45 rpm vinyl records. I’m willing to bet that you listened to tunes on a portable record player, like the one pictured.(That is if you could hear the words with all the scratches.) See if you remember the full verses to these songs –
- How much is that doggie in the window…
- ….And if that mockingbird don’t sing, daddy’s gonna buy me a diamond ring…..
- All around the cobbler’s bench, the monkey chased the weasel. The monkey said…..
- Zippedity doo dab, zippedity aye – my, oh, my what a wonderful…..
- I love you a bushel and a peck and a ……
- Bibbidi…bobbidy…boo. Put it together and what do you got?
- Jeepers, creepers! Where’d you get those ….
- A dream is a wish your heart makes when you are ……
- Mama’s little baby likes shortnin’, shortnin’, Mama’s little baby loves……
I hope your memory has served you well, and you haven’t lost your faculties. Chances are you are aging better than your ancestors! Are you singing yet?
If you can’t remember the verses of these songs, you can listen in to a few bars of music from each of them, and other popular hits of the same era through this link, http://bit.ly/1oSzXIz.
See how much fun it is to arouse the brain with past times in our personal histories?
Do return tomorrow to All Things Fulfilling.

OK! Guess I am doing pretty good, remembered all of these songs! The simplicity of the lyrics make them so endearing!
When you come for your birthday visit next week, I am going to have you sing everyone of them so I can test your memory. You are getting old as the hills – even though I am still a young chick, and I want to make sure you really know them.
