Singing In The Bathtub

Singing in the bathtub
Happy once again
Watching all my troubles
Go swinging down the drain

Singing through the soap suds
Life is full of hope
You can sing with feeling
While feeling for the soap.

A ring around the bathtub
Isn't so nice to see
But a ring around the bathtub
Is a rainbow to me

Reaching for a towel
Ready for a rub
Everyone is happy
While singing in the tub

Why am I delighted
Why am I so gay
Why am I excited
Oh, what day is today

Pardon my elation
Everything's all right
I get inspiration
Every saturday night

Singing in the bathtub
sitting all alone
Tearing out a tonsil
Just like a baritone

Never take a shower
It's an awful pain
Singing in the shower
Is like singing in the rain.

Oh, there is dirt to be abolished
But do not forget one thing
While your body's washed and polished
Sing brother sing!

You can yodel opera
Even while you scrub
Everyone is happy
While singing in the tub

Singing In The Bathtub
Michael H. Cleary, with lyrics by Herb Magidson and Ned Washington


Vaughn De Leath, 1929
