An Ode to P&G: Your Amazing Brands, Fulfill My Demands
Eighteen Thirty Seven
‘Twas a very good year;
A partnership was born
Eliciting great cheer.
How I love thee, my P&G.
One making candles
The other making soap;
As Procter and Gamble
Making products they’d hope.
How I love thee, my P&G.
The beautiful Norris daughters
Would bring these two men together;
In Cincinnati, Ohio
Economic storms, they’d weather.
How I love thee, my P&G.
Around Eighteen Fifty
We saw The Moon and Stars;
But the world would soon see
New Ivory soap bars.
How I love thee, my P&G.
Pure clean and simple
Their floating white soap bars;
Soon Procter and Gamble
Became new product czars.
How I love thee, my P&G.
A first for labor unions
A plan for profit sharing;
Showed how Procter and Gamble
For their workers, they’re caring.
How I love thee, my P&G.
By Eighteen Ninety
Thirty soaps they made;
But for P&G
Never had they strayed.
How I love thee, my P&G.
Ivory Flakes were born
And Chipso and then Dreft;
Knowing consumer needs
At this they’d became deft.
How I love thee, my P&G.
Cooking with your Crisco
Or shaving with Gillette;
The smell of Camay
We can never forget.
How I love thee, my P&G.
Then in Nineteen Forty Six
You introduced us to Tide;
A remarkable product
Where laundry and love collide.
How I love thee, my P&G.
With Crest and Charmin
Downy and Pampers;
The world all over
To you, they’d scamper.
How I love thee, my P&G.
Innovating new products
You do all of the time;
I rush to my nearest store
To drop more than a few dimes.
How I love thee, my P&G.
From hair, to nose or my mouth
My head or my shoulders;
My love for you, P&G
Burns hot, like embers smolder.
How I love thee, my P&G.
The expansion you have had
Competitors you have pounced;
Whether Folgers or Pringles
Or introducing your Bounce.
How I love thee, my P&G.
The last twenty five years
Many brands you now own;
From afar I have watched
Your family now grown.
How I love thee, my P&G.
On hundred seventy five years
Over fifty amazing brands;
I’ll never lose, with what I choose
As you fill, my daily demands.
How I love thee, my P&G.
