I Wish I Were An Oscar Mayer Wiener

This morning my son asked me how the Oscar Mayer Weiner Song went. I was quick with the first line, but then I blanked. How could I forget one of the most memorable commercial jingles in history? What do you do in a situation like this? You go to YouTube. That's what you do.

Here's a short & interesting background story to how the jingle came about. It wasn't originally written to be sung by children.

I'm guessing that it's rare for an ad campaign to have two "hit" jingles, but Oscar Mayer did it again with this one, which most of us remember from the 70's.
