Here are a few.Don't pass cars on curve or hill.if the cops don't get you,the morticians will.

It's best for one who hits the bottle; To let another use the throttle.

On the curve ahead,remember Sonny;That rabbit's foot didn't save the bunny.

He tried to cross as fast train neared,death didn't draft him,he volunteered.

His cheek
Was rough
His chick vamoosed
And now she won't
Come home to roost

Burma-Shave The place to pass
On curves
You know
Is only at
A beauty show

Burma-Shave On curves ahead
Remember, sonny
That rabbit's foot
Didn't save
The bunny

Burma-Shave
Twinkle, twinkle
One-eyed car
We all wonder
WHERE you are

Burma-Shave These signs
We gladly
Dedicate
To men who've had
No date of late

Burma-Shave A guy
Who drives
A car wide open
Is not thinkin'
He's just hopin'

Burma-Shave
A whiskery kiss
For the one
You adore
May not make her mad
But her face will be sore

Burma-Shave His brush is gone
So what'll we do
Said Mike Robe I
To Mike Robe II

Burma-Shave If your peach
Keeps out
Of reach
Better practice
What we preach

Burma-Shave
When Super-shaved
Remember, pard
You'll still get slapped
But not so hard

Burma-Shave Burma-Shave
Was such a boom
They passed
The bride
And kissed the groom To kiss
A mug
That's like a cactus
Takes more nerve
Than it does practice

Burma-Shave
The whale
Put Jonah
Down the hatch
But coughed him up
Because he scratched

Burma-Shave Violets are blue
Roses are pink
On graves
Of those
Who drive and drink

Burma-Shave Candidate says
Campaign
Confusing
Babies kiss me
Since I've been using
Burma-Shave

My job is
Keeping faces clean
And nobody knows
De stubble
I've seen

Burma-Shave Doesn't
Kiss you
Like she useter?
Perhaps she's seen
A smoother rooster!!

Burma-Shave No use
Knowing
How to pick 'em
If your half-shaved Whiskers stick 'em

Burma-Shave
He tried
To cross
As fast train neared
Death didn't draft him
He volunteered

Burma-Shave Her chariot
Raced 80 per
They hauled away
What had
Ben Her

Burma-Shave She will
Flood your face
With kisses 'Cause you smell
So darn delicious

Burma-Shave Lotion
Use Burma-Shave
In tube
Or jar
Then follow up
With our new star

Burma-Shave Lotion It has a tingle
And a tang
That starts
The day off
With a bang

Burma-Shave
Lotion Bracing as
An ocean breeze
For after shaving
It's sure
To please

Burma-Shave Lotion
For early
Morning
Pep and bounce
A brand new product
We announce

Burma-Shave Lotion The ladies
Take one whiff
And purr--
It's no wonder
Men prefer

Burma-Shave Lotion His face
Was smooth
And cool as ice
And oh! Louise!
He smelled so nice

Burma-Shave Lotion
I'd heard it praised
By drug store clerks
I tried the stuff
Hot dog!
It works

Burma-Shave Train wrecks few
Reason clear
Fireman
Never hugs
Engineer

Burma-Shave Altho insured
Remember, kiddo
They don't pay you
They pay
Your widow
Burma-Shave

Cattle Crossing means go slow, that old bull is some cow's beau. - that one used to be next to my house.

Whenever passing on a slope, always use a periscope.

Pity all the little Caesers, they had to tend their beards with tweezers.

My neighbor (near 80 years old) is the son of the originator of the Burma Shave product and has a set of signs hanging on his long side porch and more in the garage. He also has a book of all the "dittys" that his dad or someone published. And yes, I definately remember them all along the old two-lane highways in my youth.

I do, and thanks for the name of the book. I just finished going to ebay and buying a 1977 first edition book in hard cover with the dust jacket. Maybe the kids will get a few laughs too.Ray.......

A farmer protested the poor condition of a stretch of Highway 47 between McMinnville and Banks, Oregon a couple of decades ago. I called his signs "Burma Pave". I have pics of it somewhere, probably in the attic.<br>

Old Highway 47<br>
<br>
We travel in fear.<br>
<br>
Only gets worse<br>
<br>
Year after year.<br>
<br>
When citizens complained<br>
<br>
The State's head they did scratch.<br>
<br>
The only answer they had.<br>
<br>
A very thin patch.<br>
<br>
FIX HIGHWAY 47 NOW!
