The Lyrics

George Lindsey, who played, Goober Pyle, cousin of Gomer Pyle, on the old "Andy Griffith Show". recently died at the age of 83.
Played on Andy Griffith, great old tv show
Filled in for Jim Nabors, a tough row to hoe
Hit it from the ballpark with his style of ease
Filled our humor dishes, he made Goober please

Please, please, please, please,
He made Goober please
Pulled us in like fishes,
He made Goober please

Ran the old gas station, some thought him a fool,
But, he'd always show us, he was wise and cool
He was Gomer's cousin, Gomer joined the marines,
As the new "Good Old Boy" George Lindsey would please

Please, please, please, please,
Loved to smile and tease
Mayberry's mechanic
Played the part with ease

Goober dreamed of riches, heard his doggie speak
It was just Opie's prankin'..they'd hide, laugh, and peek
He did bad impressions - of stars like, Cary Grant
"Judy, Judy, Judy", proudly, he would chant

Please, please, please, please,
Greeting call was, "Hey"
Filled our humor wishes,
George, you made our day

Dressed in dark blue Dickies, true mechanic's pledge
On his head a beanie, with a turned-up scalloped edge
The legacy he left us - are treasured memories
Like reruns on TV Land - so let's thank Goober, please

Please, please, please, please
Goober sure could please
George Lindsey, you gave us
High hilarities..

George Lindsey, you gave us
High hilarities..

Hope you enjoyed your siesta, AFW. Good to see a tribute to Lindsay. I've read he was a pretty class guy. And thanks for bringing back that "Judy, Judy, Judy" memory.
