Just Because Music: Brewer and Shipley’s “One Toke Over The Line”

Heard this on the radio today and, once I remembered how much I liked this song, I wanted to share it with you.  I’ve never quite understood the lyrics, which were written as a subversive joke (I always thought it was “one toe” over the line), but I still like it:

Be Sociable, Share!

    Ah, neocon hippie! That song will certainly never be the same for me! Nor will the Lawrence Welk Show Thank you for the link. I will treasure that video, if not till my dying day, at least for a very long time. My face hurt from laughing. My husband thinks I’ve lost my marbles….

    I always associated Welk with “and a-one, and a-two.”  I’m going to have to revisit this whole thing now….

    ROFL – Lawrence Welk and Tune On, Turn In, Dropout. The man must be rolling in his grave along with the bubble machine.

    Oops, Turn On, Tune In.

    Bookworm HELP, I need a larger font for posting. Must have been my eyes watering from all the gigggles.

    This was not the first example  of Lawrence Welk doing his version of some current hits.
