Lawrence Welk does “1 Toke Over The Line”. Wow.
The guy with the accordian obviously was choking as he couldn’t hold his smoke too well
@gpost2800 This could be. During the war, Lawrence could not understand why his orchestra members objected to being called the tuity-fruity boys.
“A modern spiritual”… LMFAO! And what is that wood thing they’re leaning against? Something to hold up that fake tree?
And a one and a Toke…………..
THIS IS SOOOO CLASSIC!
Where’s the bubbles?
Just one? Poor bastards.
If ya miss this show there is SORT OF a modern one around now it’s called The Huckabee Show.
Modern spiritual? Criminy. Did anyone ever sing Inna Gadda Da Vida or Spirit in the Sky on LW?
Tank you Gale and Dale vor dat wunnerful spiritual. Give me a hit on dat nummer… and a wun and a two…
Now we know how Lawrence Welk died: Right after this show aired, someone told him what “toke” means.
“sWEEDen likes this”
Brewer and Shipley wrote the tune on a whim. I have seen this video so many times and it still makes me laugh. These two are so “White Bread” cute and, obviously, not aware of what the are really saying in the song, especially the chorus; its only “redeeming” quality to the show’s producers was that it mentions Jesus! Way to go Gale and Dale! Don’t beaugart that joint, my friends!
@rbert16000 I would pay very good money to see Zappa on Lawrence Welk.
I really like this version .. better than the original.
I heard he died before his producers would let him do any Frank Zappa!
That is hilarious!!! It’s hard to fathom that NO ONE involved in this show knew what this song was about
It does not appear to be fake, amazingly enough: Check the brewerandshipley website for backup. (I’m sure others have said this.)
cmon people it’s fake
@JimBites For truth. Pretty funny shit though. They obviously have no clue what a toke is.
Drugs are bad. Mmkay.
i think they are actually TWO tokes over the line !!!
Ha Ha Ha Lawrence says “there you heard a modern spiritual by Dale and Gayle”. Laughed so hard it gave me tears.
