If it ain't broke.....
The following is my sister's favorite "bathtime" song which I frequently asked her to sing while we bathed ~K~ when she was a baby. Yes, I already know how twisted I am.
*however, this song is actually the perfect length for bathing infants as you will finish singing just as the bath is complete.
Cream, "Mother's Lament", Disraeli Gears
Are we rollin'? A one, a two, a free, a four...
A mother was washing her baby one night
The youngest of ten and a delicate mite
The mother was poor and the baby was thin
'Twas naught but an skelingtin covered with skin
The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack
She was only a moment but when she turned back
Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried
'Oh, where 'as my baby gone?' The angels replied:
Oh, your baby has gone down the plug 'ole
Oh, your baby has gone down the plug
The poor little thing was so skinny and thin
He should 'ave been washed in a jug (in a jug)
Your baby is perfectly happy
He won't need a bath anymore
He's a-muckin' about with the angels above
Not lost but gone before.
