Rubber Duckie, you’re the one,
You make bathtime lots of fun,
Rubber Duckie, I’m awfully fond of you;

(woh woh, bee doh!)

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

(doo doo doo doooo, doo doo)

CHORUS:
Every day when I
Make my way to the tubby
I find a little fella who’s
Cute and yellow and chubby
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/rubber-duckie-lyrics-sesame-street.html ]

(rub-a-dub-a-dubby!)

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

(repeat chorus)

Rubber Duckie, you’re so fine
And I’m lucky that you’re mine
Rubber duckie, I’m awfully fond of -
Rubber duckie, I’d like a whole pond of -
Rubber duckie I’m awfully fond of you!

(doo doo, be doo.)

We visited friends in Duluth MN last Summer and went to the Lake Superior Marine Museum, and also saw an ore carrier go under the lift bridge from Lake Superior into the harbor. This is a place where The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald isn’t just a song, but is very much *real* *life*.

Hey, my daughter-in-law (last of 10 kids) is 100% Irish. The 5 oldest were born in Ireland. That songs implies all Irishman are drunks. Oh, wait most are. Your only 80% right.

My sons name is Patrick Shawn and they call him Patty. If I wanted a girl, I would have had one.

Not my favorite, but “Vahevala” by Loggins and Messina is a great song that needs to be on the thread.

My vote is for Southern Cross.

BUT...I like this song too:

Louie Louie, oh no, me gotta go, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby.
Louie Louie, oh baby, me gotta go.

A fine little girl, she waits for me.
Me catch the ship across the sea.
Me sailed the ship all alone.
Me never think I’ll make it home.

Louie Louie, oh no, me gotta go, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby.
Louie Louie, oh baby, me gotta go.

Three nights and days I sailed the sea.
Me think of girl constantly.
On the ship, I dream she there.
I smell the rose in her hair.

Louie Louie, oh no, me gotta go, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby.
Louie Louie, oh baby, me gotta go.
OK, let’s give it to ‘em right now

(guitar solo)

Me see . . .

Me see Jamaica, the moon above.
It won’t be long me see me love.
Me take her in my arms and then
I tell her I’ll never leave again.

Louie Louie, oh no, me gotta go, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby.
Louie Louie, oh baby, me gotta go
I said we gotta go now
Let’s step on out of here
Let’s go!

Agreed...best sailing song ever.

I went to a private high school which had an outstanding men's chorus (sang concerts twice with the Vienna Boy's Choir). My senior year we sang What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor. Most complex piece of music I've ever sung and a LOT of fun to sing.

One time during rehearsal he was so pissed about our poor performance he went on a rant and told the bass and baritone sections to "put some balls into it!" LOL!
