I Wish I Were an Oscar Meyer Weiner – Oscar Meyer Classic Jingle

1960s, Featured Articles, Food 1 3759

1965 is remembered for a lot of things, for instance, the Voting Rights Act, the space race, the Cold War, the Beatles touring, war in Vietnam, and the completion of the St. Louis Arch.

But, for history’s sake, 1965 will be forever remembered as the year that everyone across United States was singing this little ditty about wieners:

The exact words of the jingle have changed here and there.

In this particular commercial, you can sing along as follows:


Oh, I’d love to be an Oscar Meyer weiner
That is what I’d truly like to be
‘Cause if i were an Oscar Meyer weiner
Everyone would be in love with me

Oh, I’m glad I’m not an Oscar meyer weiner.
That is what I’d never wanna be
‘Cause if i were an Oscar Meyer weiner
there would soon be nothing left of me

Another variation is:

I wish I were an Oscar Mayer Weiner
That is what I’d truly like to be
‘Cause if i were an Oscar Meyer weiner
Everyone would be in love with me

Oh, I’m glad I’m not an Oscar meyer weiner.
That is what I’d never wanna be
‘Cause if i were an oscar meyer weiner
Everyone would take a bite of me.
