Real friendly like an officer, friendly and a gentleman
Friendly like neighbors, not Jim
But like Gomer I got piles of loot
In rapid succession, Ynot puns on the names of:
Officer Friendly, the police icon who went into school classrooms in Chicago in the 1960’s and 70’s
An Officer and a Gentleman, the 1982 movie starring Richard Gere, Debra Winger, and Louis Gossett, Jr.
Jim Nabors, an Alabama-born actor and singer, whose most famous part was playing:
Gomer Pyle, the lead character in the 1960’s TV show Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.
