Ooooh… these harmonies and the “Oom Poppa”… It gives me the huuuugest goose bumps ever, my hair stands on end and I just feel all warm inside!!! The video is from 1981, so they do look a bit dorky, hehe…

“Elvira” – The Oak Ridge River Boys

Elvira, Elvira
My heart’s on fire Elvira

Eyes that look like heaven, lips like cherry wine
That girl can sure enough make my little light shine
I get a funny feelin’ up and down my spine
‘Cause I know that my Elvira’s mine

I’m singin’
Elvira, Elvira
My heart’s on fire, Elvira

Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Heigh-ho Silver, away

Tonight I’m gonna meet her at the Hungry House Cafe
And I’m gonna give her all the love I can, yes I am
She’s gonna jump and holler
‘Cause I saved up my last two dollars
We’re gonna search and find that preacher man

Now I’m a singin’
Elvira, Elvira
My heart’s on fire Elvira

Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Heigh-ho Silver, away

Elvira, Elvira
My heart’s on fire Elvira

Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Heigh-ho Silver, away

Elvira, Yeah…
Elvira
My heart’s on fire Elvira

Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow
Heigh-ho Silver, away

Elvira, Yeah…
Elvira
My heart’s on fire Elvira…

 

…and just because I like their voices, how about THIS one? It’s a little bit of an encore (that means the previous song played once more) , and THEN some:

“Angels watching over me” – the boys have aged gracefully, don’t you think? I just LOVE William Lee Golden’s long, white beard!
