The Old Spice jingle was adapted by Ginger Johnson (a pseudonym of Austen Croom-Johnson) from a traditional bagpipe melody, "Scotland the Brave," in March 1953. The lyrics are:
Brushless or lather boys, whichever you've the notion.
Fifty cents for shaving cream, a dollar for the lotion.
"Old Spice means quality," said the captain to the boson.
So look for the package with the ship that sails the ocean.
