Songs from Mayberry

Posted by ESC on March 16, 2001

I am cleaning out my junk draw today. Among my newsclips are these songs from the classic U.S. television series, The Andy Griffith Show, set in Mayberry.

Words to the whistled theme song: "Fishin' Hole" by Everett Sloane, a character actor who played Jubal Foster in one episode:

Well now, take down your fishin' pole
and meet me at the fishing hole,
we may not get a bite all day,
but don't you rush away.
What a great place to rest your bones,
and mighty fine for skippin' stones.
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade
a settin' in the shade.
Whether it's hot,
whether it's cool,
oh, what a spot for whistlin' like a fool.
What a fine day to take a stroll,
and wander by the fishin' hole.
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o'day.

Mayberry Union High school song:

Mayberry Union High,
victory is yours well-nigh,
we'll hit the line
for points every time,
the orange and blue
will climb, climb, climb, climb.
And when the victory's won
you'll be our favorite son,
Proud waves your banner in
the sky!
Mayberry Union High!
