Circa mid 50's

Mixed - Military Brats - chant overseas Asia:

Hey, Hey get out of my way.
I just got back from the U.S.A.

Same era, west-coast USA
More a playground prank than song -

There was a popular radio cigarette-commercial:
Winston Tastes Good
Like a Cigarette Should.

You would walk up to the dupe and ask, "For a penny, Bet you can't give me the first line of a cigarette commercial! The dupe would reply, Winston tastes good. The perpetrator would then hand over a penny.... pull out the waist-band of his trousers and say, "HEAR that WINSTON?????"

Sincerely,
Gargoyle
