Here's a better version of "Splish Splash" than Bobby Darin's.

The second one was better. Babies are grotesque. And nasty.

Candyman, Is there a way I can send that Splish Splash out in an email? I clicked & loved it-then the site came up Last nite & I could not raise anything but ads. Appreciate any help. Thanks.

Apparently these lyrics haven't been posted at Mudcat before....


SPLISH SPLASH
Written by Bobby Darin and Murray Kaufman (a.k.a. Murray the K),* ©1958.
As recorded by Bobby Darin

Splish! Splash! I was takin' a bath,
'Long about a Saturday night—yeah!
Rub! Dub! Just relaxin' in the tub,
Thinkin' ever'thing was all right.
Well, I stepped out the tub, put my feet on the flo',
I wrapped a towel around me an' I opened the do',
And then-a splish! Splash! I jumped back in the bath.
Well, how was I to know there was a party goin' on?

They was a-splishin' an' a-splashin',
Reelin' with the feelin',
Movin' an' a-groovin',
Rockin' an' a-rollin'—yeah!

Bing! Bang! I saw the whole gang
Dancin' on my livin' room rug.
Yeah, flip! Flop! They was doin' the bop
All the teens had the dancin' bug.
There was Lollipop with-a Peggy Sue.
Good golly! Miss-a Molly was-a even there too.
A-well-a splish! Splash! I forgot about the bath.
I went an' put my dancin' shoes on.

Yay!—I was rollin' an' a-strollin',
Reelin' with the feelin',
Movin' an' a-groovin',
Splishin' an' a-splashin'—yeah!

Yeah, they was a-splishin' an' a-splashin'.
I was a-rollin' an' a-strollin'.
Yeah, I was a-movin' an' a-groovin'—whoo!
We was a-reelin' with the feelin'—ha!
It was a-rollin' an' a-strollin',
Movin' with the groovin',
Splish! Splash! Yeah!

Mm! Splishin' an' a-splashin'.
One time, I was splishin' an' a-splashin'—whoo! Woo!
I was movin' an' a-groovin'.
Yeah, I was splishin' an' a-splashin'.
[FADE]


[Wikipedia says that Kaufman, who was working as a DJ at the time, wanted to avoid giving any impression of payola, so he let the song be credited to "Jean Murray" as a tribute to his mother, Jean Kaufman, who had contributed the first line of the song as a challenge to Darin.]
