Song Saturday Stan Freberg, Wunerful, Wunerful

Stan Freberg is most famous for doing television commercials. But, he also did a lot of comedy sketches. This song comes from his comedy group “The Original Cast.”

I shared a Lawerence Welk song one of my childhood favorite songs “Winchester Cathedral”. This song makes fun of the Lawerence Welk show!

  1. It is better for me to publish the lyrics so that I know what is being sung in the song. Otherwise, I only listen to music. Not everyone in virily knows English. Thanks Doc.Now smiles are needed for all of us.

      Note LW is Lawrence Welk, -L is a Lemmon sister
      LS is the Lemmon Sisters, LL is Larry Looper
      SS is Stoney Stonedwell, AL is Alice Lean
      SM is sailor matey, SC is sailor captain
      Note LW is done in a parody of Lawrence Welk’s accent
      I will spell this phonetically in a few places
      Where it is important, but if I did it consistently
      LW would be unintelligible
      LW Thank you, thank you and good evening friends
      We’re coming to you once again from the beautiful
      Aragon Ballroom on Lick Pier at beautiful Santa
      Monica Beach, California. We’ve been getting lots
      Of cards and letters from you folks out there in
      Television lant and we surely do thank you for…ah…

      LS Thank you for all those cards and letters

      Could it be a couple of miles from where Dinney Lant is
      Oh, well never the less you guys and gals in
      LW What is that noise there?
      LS – bunch of palsy-walsies –
      LW Oh, its the bubble machine. Turn off…just a moment…

      Of the program. Turn off the bubbles. Thank you Lar- thank you

      Play a short instrumental medley based on the names of girls

      Horn…hit it…here…stick your mouthpiece in it there
      Wunerful, wunerful. And now on with the show. Here’s our
      Champagne lady Alice Lean. Alice is going to sing
      Moonlight and Shadows. A-wun and a-too and a-
      Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in twenty-five years
      My popping finger is caught in my cheek. Will you give me a hand there, Alice…here, pull my arm…no, the other arm…just pull it…
      Pull it…thats it
      AL Moonlight and shadows and you in my arms
      And the melody in the bamboo tree, my sweet
      Even in shadows
      LW Hold it, somebody stop the bubble machine. The whole ballroom is lathering up with bubbles. And now I can’t see the cameras. Here, let me set that accordion down on the stage and I’ll try to fix that. Bear with us, folks just a moment please. Gee, the time is running out and we haven’t even played the polka. Wait a minute, boys, I didn’t mean…hold it, Alice, don’t polka on my accordion
      Gee, Dad, it was a Wurlitzer. Hit the theme, boys. And so its
      Goodnight from all the champagne… wheres the cameras…theres so many bubbles I can’t…and so, friends, we…help, the whole ballroom is shoving off to sea…
      SM Sure is a clear night, ain’t it, Captain?
      SC Yup, matey, these are the kind of nights when the sea plays
      Tricks on ye
      SM Yeah, I recollect one night off Singapore…
      SC Tricks, I say, like that mirage off the port bow, now
      SM What?
      SC See it there, kinda bubbly looking in the moonlight?
      SM Oh, yeah. Gee, if I didn’t know better, I’d say it looks
      Like the Aragon Ballroom
      SC Yeah…dee-deedee dee-dee dee dee dee-dee
      SM Hey, thats a catchy chantey you’re humming there, Captain. What is it?
      SC Oh, I don’t know. Just keeps running through my head
      SM Let’s go below and catch a little shut-eye
      LW Help! Help! Wunerful, wunerful. Turn off the bubble machine
