Trains don't wander
 All over the map
 'Cause nobody sits
 In the engineer's lap
 Burma Shave

 She kissed the hairbrush
 By mistake
 She thought it was
 Her husband Jake
 Use Burma Shave

Remember these? For those who never saw the Burma Shave signs, here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's and '40's. Before the Interstates, when everyone drove the old 2 lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' Fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing line of a 4 line couplet...... and the obligatory 5th sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream

Here are more of the actual signs:
