Hogan’s Heroes

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

Hogan’s Heroes, 1965-71
A comedy set in a POW camp in Germany during WWII. Bob Crane was Colonel Robert Hogan. As the ranking officer, he commanded an international group of POWs. This wasn’t your typical POW camp, with harsh treatments and abuse. This camp was used (under the Nazi’s noses) to smuggle out POWs from other camps and supported the Underground (resistance groups). Hogan and his merry crew never tried to escape, so the bumbling commander, Colonel Klink, had a perfect record. His not so bright assistant, Sargent Schultz , was very friendly with the POWs. His catch phrase was “I see nothing!” I found it funny, although unbelievable.



Jailhouse Rock, Elvis Presley, 1957




The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there and they began to wail
The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing
You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing



Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancing to the jailhouse rock



Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone
The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang



Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancing to the jailhouse rock



Number forty-seven said to number three
you the cutest jailbird i ever did see
i sure would be delighted with your company
come on and do the jailhouse rock with me


(Fine line between “correct” and “ass”)

Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancing to the jailhouse rock
Rock, rock, r...



Sad Sack was a sittin' on a block of stone
Way over in the corner weepin' all alone
The warden said,"Hey, buddy, don't you be no square If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair"



Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancing to the jailhouse rock



Shifty Henry said to Bugs,"For heaven's sake
No one's looking, now's our chance to make a break"
Bugsy turned to shifty and he said,"Nix nix I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks"



Let's rock, everybody, let's rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancing to the jailhouse rock


(Schultz: yYou can count me, sir. I will be alert and intelligent.”
Kilns: “Schultz, when I want a miracle, I’ll ask for one”)

Dancing to the jailhouse rock
Dancing to the jailhouse rock
Dancing to the jailhouse rock
Dancing to the jailhouse rock
