Ka Winky Dinky We've Struck Wallidinks

Yes sir, the rage of 1958, the One Eyed, One Horned, Flyin Purple People Eater. A song that kick started a radio station in Louisville, WAKY. 24 hours non stop, it was played. I'm sure people were sick of hearing it. The artist was Sheb Wooley who recorded many a song, but none clicked like that one with all America. Later he would record under the name Ben Colder, and score a few more hits such as "Almost Persuaded #2 and "Harper Valley (Later That Same Day) in the mid 60's". But ka winky dink, here's one you may not know about, the "Who Who Wallidinks". It was a follow up in the vein as "Purple People Eater". But the catch is, they live in the ground and don't fall fall from the sky. And this song stayed buried for many a year, until now. But by golly, "Do the kids go surfing in their baggy shorts and do you go into orbit as we've heard report ?"
