I only checked two pages to see if this is already a topic. If this is a duplicate, I apologize--but I do love these poems.

A listing of Burma-Shave signs--a little over half way down the page. There is a jukebox in the upper left corner. I had it playing Puttin' On The Ritz, but you can turn it off if you don't want music.

Original poems of Burma-Shave signs. They are by year, you have to click on a year and a name before you see the actual sign. Slow, but thorough.

My father-in-law was in Korea. He gave me a bunch of pink pages all printed up with Burma Shave jingles. He said they were very popular during his stint in the Army.
