i found on a link about advertisements a jingle form the 50's
about Rice Krispies...this reminded me that there used to be
a catchy little jingle that started out Snap is a happy sound...
anyone know the rest? There was a folk group a few years back that
used to perform this with nice harmonies, and finger snapping....

I have friends who do this....

Snap:
"Snap, what a happy sound
Snap is the happiest sound I found
You may clap, rap, tap, slap, but Snap
makes the world go round

Snap, crackle, pop ? Rice Krispies!


Crackle:
I say it's Crackle, the crispy sound
You gotta have Crackle or the clock's not wound
Geese cackle, feathers tickle, belts buckle,beets pickle, but Crackle
makes the world go round

Snap, crackle, pop ? Rice Krispies!"
                        
Pop:
I insist that Pop's the sound
The best is missed unless Pop's around
You can't stop hoppin' when the cereal's poppin'
Pop makes the world go round

Snap, crackle,pop ? Rice Krispies!

That is the whole song as I remember it. Funny you should mention it; I have been thinking of adding it to my repertoire as a gag/nostalgia song. (Bet half of the Mudcatters wonder what the heck we are talking about!)

The way it gets performed at our summer camp is by a trio - each takes one verse - each does their own "name" for the burden line - but sing the "rice Krispies" in harmony (or cacophony depending on who is singing) - then they do ALL three verses at the same time to finish.

Oak Ash & Thorn (with our own loveable El Swanno) have been doing this one for years, sometimes on stage, more often in our livingroom... After a while our friend AJ couldn't take it anymore; she cracked up and wrote this parody. I just called her for permission to post it here:


Nice Tipsies!
AJ Benham
copyright 2002

Smack, what a happy high,
Smack is the dreamiest high to try
You may track, snack, pack, v-tach, but Smack....helps the world get by.
Smack! Nice Tipsy!

I say it's Crack: the lively high.
You gotta have crack or your drive just dies
Kids whiff it, moms sniff it, dads sift it, cops lift it Crack...helps the world get by.
.....Crack! Nice Tipsy!

I insist that Pot's the high.
If you don't inhale they can't say you lied.
But don't stop tokin' when the MaryJane's smokin'...
Pot....helps the world get by.
...............Pot! Nice Tipsy!


I'll come visit you in prison when Kellogg catches up with you, AJ!


p.j.

I sometimes sing all three parts at once. That is,

Snap say it's Crackle that Pop's the sound
You gotta Snap have Crackle when Pop's around
You can slap tickle hoppin'
When the clap buckle poppin'
Snap! Crackle! Pop! Rice Krispies

Of course, people do tend to wander away before I'm finished....

Aloha,
Mark

Mr Happy: ps- always thought they tasted queer

You thought they tasted? They always tasted like crunchy milk to me. (And the crunchy didn't last long either.) There's hardly any flavour there at all. No wonder Cocoa Crispies became so popular.
