    @jcnsync1 yes you could. You can say so many more things than you could. The FCC swung liberal.

    @gonzobuc1 I absolutely love your comment. Smothers Brothers broke ground, and scared a lot of official people, so the suits shut them down. But they are not truly gone, nor forgotten. I was young when their great show was on the air, and now I am not so young (62 yrs old), but I have not forgotten, and am delighted to be able to see them here now. They were right-on true then. and I think I appreciate them even more now. Long live Smothers Brothers!

    Political Correctness has crippled comedy today. Even with the comedians we have today, they have lines they won’t cross, this song does the same thing I do with thinking outside the box. They think there isn’t a line at all.

    What a great show it was.

    This was one of Jack´╗┐´╗┐ Andrews’ favorite songs. He would play it often on his all night radio program, “The Bat Club,” on WDJX-FM in Louisville, Kentucky. WJDX was the #1 (Arbitron rated) FM station in the market at the time. Jack passed away on July 29, 2010. He was 48 years old.

    This was during the Civil Rights marches of the 60′s. I remember it well, even though it never made it to the album.

    FYI: The composer of this particular song was interviewed a few years ago. The song was originally 7 verses long.

    I like the Wayans Brothers version of them better on” In Living Color “.

    I saw them last year in Trenton, NJ and they’re still funny! Thanks for the laughs!

    @OutrunTheWolf correction: it was before every word that had any reference at all to any race was considered racist. how is saying that someone is black racist if the colour of their skin is actually black? saying it and implying that it’s bad to be black is a different story of course, but i don’t think he had any intention of being racist
