Singing In the Bathtub Magidson / Ned Washington / Cleary, John Lithgow

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's
Like singing in the rain

Oh there is dirt to be abolished
But don't forget one thing
While the body's washed and polished
Sing brother sing

You can yodel opera
Even while you scrub
(Ridi Pagliacci)
Everybody's happy
While singing in the tub

I'm forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air

You can be Sinatra
Soakin' as you croon
(Shoo-bee doo-bee doo)
Hitting all the high notes
Never out of tune.

Singin' every number
From your favorite show
Droppin' down from forte
To pianissimo

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

Reaching for a towel
Ready for a rub
Everybody's happy while singin' inthe tub

The above lyrics were John Lithgow's version (he wrote additional lyrics)
Below are some of the original lyrics he didn't use:

Singing through the soap suds
Life is full of hope
I can sing with feeling
While feeling the soap

Be my love, for no one else can
End this yearning

Reaching for a towel
Happy once again
Watching all my troubles
Go swirling down the drain
