Oscar Mayer

Oscar Mayer died last week (7/6/09) - he was 95. He was a real person. This is the Weinermobile.

I did not eat Oscar Mayer bolonga or hot dogs (we grew up eating and still eat Carolina Packers/Bright Leaf hot dogs and bologna - it doesn't get any better) but I can hear that little song in my head.

My bolonga has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R

My bolonga had a second name - it's M-A-Y-E-R

Oh I love to eat it everyday,
And If you ask me why say,
Cause Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A!
and the hot dog -

Oh I'd love to be an Oscar Mayer weiner
That is what I'd truly love to be
Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer weiner
Everyone would be in love with me!
