The Lyrics

Andy does not carry a gun
Watching Don Knotts as Barney's fun
Floyd is lisping every word
And Opie shot a mother bird

Opie Aunt Bee (x bunch of times)

With one bullet Barney's dangerous
Gomer doesn't just amaze us
Cousin Goober sure is brain dead
But don't watch the Beaver instead

Do not ramble
Otis Campbell
Ernest T. Bass
Acts like an ass

Barney goes out with Thelma Lou
Juanita from the diner's blue
Andy never dances the bump
He's bossed around by Helen Crump

Helen Helen (x bunch of times)

Opie once played in a rock band
And the songs they played were not grand
Otis Campbell is the town drunk
And he does not look like a hunk

Mayberry life
Is not a bore
Gomer Pyle joined
The Marine Corps

Aunt Bee just baked an apple pie
And it makes the whole household sigh
In black and white it's never bland
Every night it's on TV Land

Gomer Goober (x bunch of times)

In the year 1968
The show suffered a lousy fate
The sheriff of Mayberry
Was now played by young Ken Berry

Andy had quit
Said it was it
When it was still
Such a big hit
Yeah, Andy had left
Andy had left
Andy had left

I was born WAY after they stopped making Andy Griffith, and I don't watch Nick At Nite, so I didn't get this one. That's why...
