. .                1960's Burma-Shave jar from Eisner Museum
 A beard
 That's rough
 And overgrown
 is better than
 A chaperone
 Burma-Shave
 Altho insured
 Remember, kiddo
They don't pay you
 They pay
 Your widow
Burma-Shave 
. .
 Another
 Red skin
 Bit the dust
 When Pa tried
 What these signs discussed
 Burma-Shave
 Big blue tube
 It's a honey
 Best squeeze play
 For love
 Or money
Burma-Shave 
 Cautious rider
 To her
 Reckless dear
 Let's have less bull
 And lots more steer
 Burma-Shave
. .
 Drinking drivers
 Don't you know
 Great bangs
 From little
 Binges grow?
 Burma-Shave
 I know
 He's a wolf
 Said riding hood
 But Grandma dear,
 He smells so good
 Burma-Shave
 I'd heard
 It praised
 By drug store clerks
 I tried the stuff
 Hot dog! It works
 Burma-Shave
. .
 My cheek
 Says she
 Feels smooth as satin
 Ha! Ha! Says he
 That's mine you're pattin'
Burma-Shave 
 Pat's bristles
 Scratched
 Bridget's nose
 That's when
 Her wild irish rose
 Burma-Shave
 Proper
 Distance
 To him was bunk
 They pulled him out
 Of some guy's trunk
 Burma-Shave
. .
 She eyed
 His beard
 And said no dice
 The wedding's off--
 I'll COOK the rice
 Burma-Shave
Soap 
 May do
 For lads with fuzz
 Bur sir, you ain't
 The kid you wuz
 Burma-Shave
 Spring
 Has sprung
 The grass has riz
 Where last year's
 Careless drivers is
 Burma-Shave
. .
 Substitutes
 Can do
 More harm
 Than city fellers
 On a farm
 Burma-Shave
 The band
 For which
 The grand stand roots
 Is not made up
 Substi-toots!
 Burma-Shave
 The hobo
 Lets his
 Whiskers sprout
 It's trains--not girls
 That he takes out
 Burma-Shave
. .
 Train approaching
 Whistle squealing
 Pause!
 Avoid that
 Rundown feeling!
 Burma-Shave
 Train wrecks few
 Reason clear
 Fireman
 Never hugs
 Engineer
 Burma-Shave
 Unless
 Your face
 Is stinger free
 You'd better let
 Your honey be
 Burma-Shave
