This transcript is for the Sing Along with Mandy Podcast show, “Bath Time”. You can listen to the entire episode here!

Hello hello hello

Splish splish splash splash, how I love to take a bath! When you take a bath, do you like lots of bubble or no bubbles? Do you have a favorite bath toy? I just love to take a bath. When I was little I really loved to lie down and let my hair float in the water and pretend I was a mermaid. Today’s songs are all wonderful for singing at bath time. 

Greeting

Hi Friends! Welcome back to the Sing Along with Mandy Podcast. I’m Mandy, and I’m so glad you’re here. 

I love to sing songs and play fun – and sometimes silly – games and I especially love to sing and play with you. 

If you or your adult would like to see the lyrics to the songs in this episode, I’ll leave a link in the show notes.  If you don’t know a song yet, don’t worry! Just listen and sing along when you can. Are you ready? Let’s sing!

Rub a dub dub 

Rub-a-dub-dub,

Three men in a tub,

And who do you think they be?

The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,

And all of them out to sea.

When I take a bath, I like to get all the scrubbing and cleaning done first so I can play play play. Let’s sing a song about getting clean. It’s to the tune of Here we go round the Mulberry Bush.

This is the way we take a bath

This is the way we take a bath, take a bath, take a bath.

This is the way we take a bath… let’s get clean!

This is the way we fill the tub

This is the way we shampoo our hair

This is the way we rinse our hair

This is the way we wash our skin

This is the way we rinse our skin

This is the way we scrub our toes

This is the way we take a bath… let’s get clean!

If your knees got extra muddy today when you played outside, you could sing about scrubbing your knees. Or if your hands got super colorful while you were painting or drawing with chalk, you could sing about scrubbing your fingers! Your adult can just pause the episode and or you can keep scrubbing and say this next rhyme with me. It’s about a baby who tried to eat the bathtub! 

Miss Lucy had a Baby

Miss Lucy had a baby

His name was Tiny Tim

She put him in the bathtub

To see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water.

He ate up all the soap.

He tried to eat the bathtub

But it wouldn’t go down his throat.

Miss Lucy called the doctor.

Miss Lucy called the nurse.

Miss Lucy called the lady

With the alligator purse.

“Mumps!” Said the doctor

“Measles!” said the Nurse

“Nothing!” said the lady with the alligator purse

Miss Lucy punched the doctor.

Miss Lucy knocked  the nurse.

Miss Lucy kissed the lady

With the alligator purse.

If you like that song, you can sing it with me again in our next show – Episode 27 is going to be all about ouchies and boo boos and visiting the doctor!

But for now, let’s get back to our bath. Do you have something that you can fill with water and pour it out? Maybe a toy or a cup or a bottle? Let’s sing I’m a little teapot! And pour water into the tub!

I’m a little teapot

I’m a little teapot

Short and stout

Here is my handle

Here is my spout

When I get all steamed up

Hear me shout

Tip me over and pour me out!

I’m a very special teapot

Yes, it’s true

Here’s an example of what I can do

I can turn my handle into a spout

Tip me over and pour me out!

Rhythm repeat

Let’s play our Rhythm Repeat game! First, let’s warm up our hands with a drumroll. Use you hands to slap your thighs! (drumroll)

Can you clap your hands? (clap) Can you snap your fingers? (snap) Can you slap your knees? (Slap) I call this next game Rhythm Repeat. It’s very easy.

I’m going to say some very silly words and then you repeat them. You can clap, snap and slap along too!

My turn, your turn, 8 rounds]

Down by the bay,

Where the watermelons grow,

Back to my home,

I dare not go,

For if I do,

My mother will say:

Did you ever see a bear combing his hair?

Down by the bay

Repeat with: 

Did you ever see a bee with a sun-burned knee?

Did you ever see a moose kissing a goose?

Did you ever see a whale with a polka dot tail?

Did you ever see a fish sailing in a dish?

Did you ever see a cat in a tall black hat?

“Did you ever see a fly wearing a tie?”

“Did you ever see a snake eating some cake?”

“Did you ever see some llamas eating their pajamas?”

How about this one – Did you ever do some math while taking a bath?

Did you ever do some math while taking a bath? That is so silly. But… it reminds me of a fun game. If you have five small bath toys, now is the time to get them. If not, you can pretend and have just as much fun. 

Take your five bath toys and line them up on the edge of your bathtub. If you’re in the car or don’t have bath toys right now, you can pretend you’ve lined up five frogs on our arm. Let’s count them. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Wonderful!

Now, as we sing this next song, you can drop 1 frog or toy with each verse into the water. You’ll see as we sing! 

Five Green and Speckled Frogs

Five green and speckled frogs

Sat on a speckled log

Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum)

One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Then there were four green speckled frogs. (glup glup)

The final verse ends “Then there were no green speckled frogs.”

If you like these counting and singing games – which are really great for bath time play – check out episode 13: Numbers Numbers Numbers!

Let’s pretend our bathtub is a boat. Our next song is Row Row Row Your Boat. We sang this in Episode #2 – the show called Water Water Everywhere. If you’re sitting in the car, you can put your hands out like your holding the oars and pulllll them back to you! If you’re in the bath, you can pretend you’re sitting in a row boat and you’re the captain of the ship!

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream

Repeat

Closing

I hope you’ve enjoyed singing along with me today during the Sing Along with Mandy Podcast. I have loved playing and singing with you! 

If you have an idea for a theme for a future episode of the Sing Along with Mandy Podcast, ask your adult to let me know. This episode’s theme about Bath Time was my friend, Ms. Emily’s idea! I’ll leave links in the show notes with ways to contact me.

Next time we’ll sing songs and play games all about our bodies. Guess what – it’s a good one for the bath too. I can’t wait to Sing Along with you then!

Grown ups – be sure to hit subscribe so that you can hear the next episode when it comes out on Thursday! And, if you want me to create a sing along just for your special little one, check out the details at nowtakeoff.com/gift
