Shake Open and Pour, a Milk Shake

Borden Milk Shake

One of the catchiest commercial jingles around was the above refrain.

Milk Shake was a Borden’s product. There seemed to be a brief craze in the mid-to-late 60’s of selling canned milk shakes. A rival brand was Great Shakes, which also had a killer jingle.

Anyhow, this song stuck in my head as a kid, and I can recall most of the lyrics:

Shake open and pour, a milk shake!
Shake open and pour, a milk shake!
(Something something), in a can
(Something else), it’s crazy man!
No fountain drink is better than

At this point a kid would screw up his line and blurt out
er, shake open and pour!

Help me with the missing lyrics, would you?

  1. This was a good product. Just like Burger Chef. They put ketchup, mustard and onions on every burger. This shake had great chocolate taste!
