: I am cleaning out my junk drawer 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!
