Burma Shave Signs
16 Jan 2006

     Before the interstates, when everyone drove the old two-lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the country-side in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing one line of a four-line couplet...and the obligatory fifth sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream.
DON'T LOOSE YOUR HEAD
TO GAIN A MINUTE
YOU NEED YOUR HEAD
YOUR BRAINS ARE IN IT
*** Burma Shave ***

DONT STICK YOUR HEAD
OUT THE WINDOW TOO FAR
IT MAY GO HOME
IN AN OTHER CAR
*** Burma Shave ***

DROVE TOO LONG
DRIVER SNOOZING
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT
IS NOT AMUSING
*** Burma Shave ***

BROTHER SPEEDERS
LET'S REHEARSE
ALL TOGETHER
GOOD MORNING NURSE
*** Burma Shave ***

CAUTIOUS RIDER
TO HER RECKLESS DEAR
LET'S HAVE LESS BULL
AND MORE STEER
*** Burma Shave ***

SPEED WAS HIGH
WEATHER WAS NOT
TIRES WERE THIN
MARKS THE SPOT
*** Burma Shave ***

THE MIDNIGHT RIDE
OF PAUL FOR BEER
LED TO A WARMER
HEMISPHERE
*** Burma Shave ***

AROUND THE CURVE
LICKETY-SPLIT
A BEAUTIFUL CAR
WASN'T IT?
*** Burma Shave ***

NO MATTER THE PRICE
NO MATTER HOW NEW
THE BEST SAFETY DEVICE
IN THE CAR IS YOU
*** Burma Shave ***

A GUY WHO DRIVES
A CAR WIDE OPEN
IS NOT THINKIN'
HE'S JUST HOPIN'
*** Burma Shave ***

AT INTERSECTIONS
LOOK EACH WAY
A HARP SOUNDS NICE
BUT ITS HARD TO PLAY
*** Burma Shave ***

BOTH HANDS ON THE WHEEL
EYES ON THE ROAD
THAT'S THE SKILLFUL
DRIVER'S CODE
*** Burma Shave ***

THE ONE WHO DRIVES WHEN
HE'S BEEN DRINKING
DEPENDS ON YOU
TO DO HIS THINKING
*** Burma Shave ***

CAR IN DITCH
DRIVER IN TREE
THE MOON WAS FULL
AND SO WAS HE.
*** Burma Shave ***

PASSING SCHOOL ZONE
TAKE IT SLOW
LET OUR LITTLE
SHAVERS GROW
***Burma Shave***

Prayers needed Now!
For our Troops every where.
