Possible Misspelled Names:

These are the alternate spellings of the performer's name we've had to correct in submissions to amIright.

The Statlers Brothers

Band Name Origins:

  • The legendary country vocal group took their name from a box of Statler tissues in a hotel room they were staying in. Obviously none of the guys were named Statler, but two of the original members were brothers whose last name was Reid. Interesting trivia: before they were the Statler Brothers. they were called the Kingsmen and were a gospel act. Many naive audience members thought that they were the "Louie, Louie" group, which led them to learn the song due to audience demand. Submitted by: Mark Speck

Stupid Band Names:

  • No one in this band is surnamed Statler, and only two of the four members are related as brothers. Submitted by: Candy Welty

Original Lyrics:

Story about this misheard lyric by: Fred Bennett

This is a fishing reference to using cane or stick fishing poles without using floats (bobbers) that make it easier to tell if the fish has taken the hook. It is considered a bigger challenge and a truer test of skill if you don't use floats and just rely on touch or feel to know when the fish is hooked.

Song Parody Fragments:

"Flowers on the Wall"
Better Lyrics:
Beech-Nut gives you seven sticks while others give you eight!
Six sticks for the price of seven--that ain't great!
Counting flowers on the wall, they don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire 'til dawn with a deck of sixty-one
Smoking kangaroos and watching Captain Cigarette...
[With apologies to Beech-Nut for spoofing their 1969 commercial]
Original Lyrics:
If I were walking in your shoes I wouldn't worry none
But you and your friends don't worry at all, I'm havin' lots of fun
Counting Flowers on the Wall, that don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire 'til dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin' cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo...
Submitted by: Doug Montgomery

Dated Song Lyrics:

Song Lyrics That Name Check Celebrities:

"The Movies"
The Lyrics:
There's lots of things in this old world fancy cars and pretty girls
And something I like more than sunny skies
The grandest thing I've ever seen are
Pictures on a movie screen
Wolfman you're a fright alright but sure a sight for sore eyes
It's a world of kings and queens up there on that movie screen
It's a picnic Crossin' River Kwai
The movies are great medicine
Thank you Thomas Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives
Citizen Kane Caine Mutiny Mutiny on the Bounty
The Bounty Hunters and Hunters and the Sting
Thunder Road and Road to Rio Rio Grande and Grand Hotel
Tell them Willie Boy was here with bride of Frankenstein and Shane
I love anything that moves dancin' feet to horses hoofs
Payton Place to Dorothy's trip to Oz
Tom Mix to David Hedison thank you Thomas Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives
I love Captain Blood and Elmer Fudd and Charlie Chan
Ben Ben Hur The Way We Were True Grit and Music Man
Thunderball and Walking Tall and Jaws and Jesse James
Doctor No and Vertigo and Singing in the Rain singing in the rain
Blood and Sand and Santa Fe Dunaway and Gataway Mexicali Rose and Rose Marie
Blackboard Jungle Jungle Jim Jim Thorpe All American
An American In Paris Paris Blues Blue Hawaii
I'm Teacher's Pet on Ship of Fools the movies were my special school
I'm the Graduate of Twelve o'clock High
The movies are great medicine
I thank you Tommy Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives
One flew over the cuckoo's nest
The movies are the craziest
I'll be a movie nut until I die
The movies are great medicine
Thank you Tommy Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives (Roy Rogers)
You gave us the best years of our lives.

"Do You Remember These?"
The Lyrics:
Saturday morning serials chapters 1 through 15,
Fly paper, penny loafers, Lucky Strike Green
. Flat tops, sock hops, Studebaker, Pepsi Please,
Ahh, do you remember these?
Cigar Bands, on your hand, your daddy's socks rolled down
. Sticks, snow floats and aviator caps with flaps that button down.
Movie stars on Dixie Cup tops, and knickers to your knees,
Ahh, do you remember these?
The Hit Parade, grape Tru-Aid, The Sadie Hawkins Dance,
Pedal pushers, duck tail hair and peggin' your pants.
Howdie-Doodie, Tutti-Frutti, the seam up the back of her hose,
Ahh, do you remember those?
James Dean, he was keen, Sunday movies were taboo,
The Senior Prom, Judy's mom, Rock-n-Roll was new.
Cracker Jack prize, stars in your eyes, as Daddy tore the keys,
Ahh, do you remember these? The boogey man, lemonade stands, takin' your tonsils out,
Hindenburg, -n- wait your turn, and 4 foul balls you're out.
Cigarette loads, -n- secret codes, -n- savin' lucky stars,
Can you remember back that far?
The boat neck shirts, and fender skirts and crinoline petticoats,
Mum's the word, and a dirty bird and a double root beer float.
Moon hub caps, and loud heel taps, and he's a real gone cat.
Ahh, do you remember that?
Dancin' close, little moron jokes, and cooties in her hair,
Captain Midnight, Ovaltine, and The Whip at the County Fair.
Charles Atlas Course, Roy Roger's Horse, and "only The Shadow knows"
Ahh, do you remember those?
Gable's charm, Frog in your arm, loud mufflers, pitchin' woo,
Going steady, Veronica and Betty, white bucks, and "Blue Suede Shoes"
Knock Knock jokes, and "Who's there?",
Dewey, Dewey who?;
Do we, do we remember these? Yes, we do
Ahh do we do we remember these?
