In the 1970s in Southern California there were a series of commercials for Sparklett's drinking water which had some folksy tunes which were about the stories of a Sparkletts water delivery man and the people that he would meet on his route.

Does anyone know where I can get the lyrics to these commercials or if the song is derived from another.

Thanks.

Aaron

This thirsty man is Harvey Hood
Whose drinking water never tasted good
He used to sneak up on his glass to get him a drink
So he called Sparkletts
And bad taste problems are over, here's why:
Sparkletts water is the best you can buy
That sparkling smile means Harvey Hood agreed: "Whoop-dee-dee!"
The name on the shirt says Sparkletts, friends
It means good taste and it makes good sense
Me and Sparkletts water making friends
Yes, me and Sparkletts water making friends
Sparkletts brings good-tasting water to a thirsty world!


About 5 am I left the middle of the city,
Look at that sunrise, ain't she a pretty one?
Me and Sparkletts Water and a brand new day.
In a bright green truck with a shimmering sign that says "Sparkletts," friend,
And a way up yonder around the bend
Waits a little old lady and a dog named Leon Jones, yeah, Leon.
Well, the lady is pleasant, seems real nice,
Leon don't, tried to bite me twice,
So now I bring water and two big juicy bones--lamb's shoulder.
Clean, clear water is what it's all about,
I put the fresh ones in and take the empties out,
And the way she smiles reminds me of my old man Flo, don't you know?
South Dakota, treats me like a real hero.
Well, she said "Thanks," I think Leon grinned,
I put her in gear and hit the road again,
Me and Sparkletts Water making friends.
Yes, me and Sparkletts Water making friends.
Sparkletts brings good tasting water to a thirsty world.

The actor who played Harvey Hood is still alive and kicking...he is 90 years young.
