Sorry, Wilco, but your grandson is right!

Maybe I can look up the proper chords for you later – no time right now – if someone else doesn't beat me to it in the meantime. But the chords you posted are definitely not correct!!

Thanks. the big problem here is that my rubber duckie can't sing along in all of these minor and diminished chords. Plus, we sometimes sing it under water in the tubbie, and I have trouble getting these tough guitar chords right under water. For the typical semi-literate, guitar player, what would work in major chords and 7th chords. I want to teach this to lots of kids, and the chords have to be simple. AND, PLEASE!!!!! Don't anyone tell my little know-it-all grandson that his grandpappy whodo was wrong on this.

Oops! Sorry; the chord above the word "tubby" should be a Bm (B minor) chord. (I previewed the post before I submitted, and I still missed that boo-boo!)
Correction noted and change made.

With all due repect to Mr. Jeffrey Moss, KIDS' SONGS JUST SHOULDN'T BE THAT #@&%#@ COMPLICATED! Ya write a song fer a kiddie show knowin' full well that every time anyone in the world picks up a guitar in front of a kid the kid's gonna want 'em to play that song. And then ya go and make it so complicated that 95% of the guitar players in the world couldn't play it if their lives depended on it. Thank God for sensible people like SharonA who dummy it up enough that real parents and grandparents can play the thing.

Now, where'd that kid go?

If a Joe Clone would be so kind as to close the BOLD after the word "complicated" on the above post, I would appreciate it. Apoligies for the inconvenience.

"Rubber Duckie" is a mindworm...; as are many of the Sesame Street songs - one of the many reasons the show is successful. I don't know if it was deliberate or not - but not unexpected.

"95% of the guitar players in the world couldn't play it"

So you think that your inability is reflective or the majority?

Bold... I suspect you're incorrect, but bold none the less...

Start the kid on an instrument - he has the ear.



Wilco48 - I think you did a bang-up job of turning it into a I,IV,V....throw an A7 at the fond of and your can probably slide it past your critic.



Sincerely,

It's nice to have chords, and it's nice to have that German foolishness in that other thread, but it's also nice to have verified, authentic lyrics. Here they are, in all their glory:

RUBBER DUCKIE
(Jeff Moss)

Rubber Duckie, you're the one!
You make bath time lots of fun.
Rubber Duckie, I'm awfully fond of you;
(voh voh voh, dee oh!)

Rubber Duckie, joy of joys,
When I squeeze you, you make noise!
Rubber Duckie, you're my very best friend, it's true!

CHORUS
Oh, every day when I
Make my way to the tubby
I find a little fella who's
Cute and yella and chubby
(rub-a-dub-dubby!)

Rubber Duckie, you're so fine,
And I'm lucky that you're mine.
Rubber Duckie, I'm awfully fond of you.

CHORUS

Rubber Duckie, you're so fine
And I'm lucky that you're mine
Rubber Duckie, I'd like a whole pond of -
Rubber Duckie, I'm awfully fond of you!
(doo doo, be doo.)
