Arnie Treffers, beter bekend als Long Tall Ernie, behaalde met de band The Shakers eind jaren zeventig zijn grootste successen met nummers als Do You Remember en Golden Years Of Rock 'n Roll, die potpourri's van rock-'n-rollstukken waren.

Al in 1964 heeft hij als Big Ernie een single "Charlie Brown" opgenomen en in 1965 twee nummers van een ep. Daarna heeft Arnie nog singles opgenomen onder de volgende namen: C.S. '65; Limited '65; Spijkerkwartet (1970-1973); Palace (1971); Arnhem (1972-1973); Pontiacs (1973); Arnie (1974); Block (1982).

In 1971 speelde de groep Moan in het voorprogramma van Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers met dezelfde bezetting. In 1973 had Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers zoveel succes, dat Moan opgeheven werd. Met Moan had Arnie overigens wel zijn eerste Top 40-hit: Health of freedom kwam in 1971 tot nummer 27. Met Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers had hij 10 hits, waaronder de nummer 1-hit Do you remember in 1977. Dit nummer kwam in Duitsland ook nog tot een 20e plaats.


Think of all the stars from the fifties scene
Jukebox heroes and all the screams
Buddy Holly and Peggy Sue
Ricky Nelson got his Mary Lou
Do you remember, do you remember

There were Don and Phil when they sang "Bird Dog"
Buona Sera Señorita, Rock Around The Clock
Little Richard and Bobby Rydell
Elvis Presley "a-Heartbreak Hotel"
Do you remember, do you remember, do you remember

Lucille, you don't do your daddy's will
Lucille, you don't do your daddy's will
There ain't nothing to you, but I love you still

Johnny is a joker, he's a bird
A very funny joker, he's a bird
But when he jokes my honey, he's a dog
His joking ain't so funny, what a dog
Johnny is a joker as he tries to steal my baby, he's a bird dog

I'm a-walking in the rain
Tears are falling and I feel a pain
Wishing you were here by me
To end this misery
And I wonder, wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder
Why, wah-wah-wah-wah-why she ran away
And I wonder where she will stay
My little runaway

I'm like a rubber ball, sang Bobby Vee
Whole lotta shakin' played Jerry Lee
I'm so young and you're so old
Another record that went gold
Do you remember, do you remember, do you remember

He likes bread and butter
He likes toast and jam
That's what his baby feeds him
He's her lovin' man
Well, I like bread and butter
I like toast and jam
That's what my baby feeds me
And I'm her lovin' man

Well, that's allright mama
That's allright by you
It's allright mama
Not just anyway you do me
That's allright, that's allright
That's allright my mama, anyway you do

Saturday night, I just got paid
Fool about my money, don't try to save
My heart says go, go, have a time
Saturday night, baby I feel fine
I'm gonna rock it up
I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna shake it up
I'm gonna bop it up
I'm gonna rock it up
Have a ball tonight

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny won't you come along with me
(Jenny, Jenny)
Jenny, Jenny, Jenny won't you come along with me
(Jenny, Jenny)
Tonight, we could live so happily
