Jim Backus Lyrics

Ooh we're gonna have fun
It's a cozy table, isn't it?
And champagne my dear, heh-heh

Mm delicious, ha-ha
You like it? Heh-heh
Mm delicious, ha-ha!
Hee-hee-hee I like it to, heh-heh yes I do like it

Mm delicious
Heh-heh you want some more?
Mm delicious!
I knew you'd like it, heh heh ha

Have some more, get the waiter and heheh put on the paper hat
Get out the lampshade ha-ha I even like the cork! Waiter, waiter,
More! Keep pouring it! Every night's New Year's Eve! Waiter, every
Night we're gonna do thish, I don't care, loshe the job what you

Jim also had a very late, big time radio show for 7 months in 1957-58. It was when the ABC Radio Network changed its format and name.

They became the "Live and Lively" network and the shows (others included Merv Griffin and Jim Reeves) had big bands and top flight production values at a time when the migration to TV (at least at night) was almost complete.

They poured millions into the project, but it was a failure and almost killed the ABC Radio Network.

Shame. I wish big time radio could have been a companion service to television.

Here's a Jim Reeves Show from Christmas Day, 1957!

This is depraved.  I adore it.


Sounds more like they're smoking dope rather than drinking champagne ...

Nah, they need to get a room. PRonto.;)

when I was about six, my friend Susie and I were in hysterics listening to this 45. We quit listening to it when her mom cracked it and threw it in the wastebasket

Joe Postove

I wonder if John Lennon was listening to this when he wrote "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)"

Juan Carlos

That lady sounds like a smoker. You can hear the phlegm in her laughter!


Just watched a old footage of lily tomlin on What’s My Line and Jim Backus was one of the panelists. Lily asked him who the woman was, he said she was an amateur, a lady truck driver!

Aaron Jaben

everybody was semi-alcoholic chain-smokers back then!

We can make A LOT of $! (Forget the 3/4 of a Billion $ drawing, tonight!) Just rename the movie, as: "The Taking of Phlegm - ham 123!" Really! (If you win, either let me help you spend it, OR reduce the National Debt!)

@torres songs Twit!!! (Rhymes wit: 'Shi...')
