Bath Song




























Sing hey! For the bath at close of day
that washes the weary mud away!
A loon is he that will not sing:

O! Water Hot is a noble thing!
O! Sweet is the sound of falling rain,
and the brook that leaps from hill to plain;

but better than rain or rippling streams
is Water Hot that smokes and steams.

O! Water cold we may pour at need
down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed;

but better is Beer, if drink we lack,
and Water Hot poured down the back.

O! Water is fair that leaps on high
in a fountain white beneath the sky;

but never did fountain sound so sweet
as splashing Hot Water with my feet!
