I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
I roam wherever I please
I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
Come sail away with me

My friends come visit on the S.S. Bathtub
They arrive on water skis
Some are dolphins and some are whales
And some are manatees

I travel far in the S.S. Bathtub
I sail the seven seas
Sometimes I stop at islands
That look just like great big knees

I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
I roam wherever I please
I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
Come sail away with me

I've got two dogs on the S.S. Bathtub
A Great Dane and a Pekinese
I named one Port and I named one Starboard
And I'll let you name their fleas

The fish that swim under the S.S. Bathtub
Know all their ABCs
They study hard in their school of fish
Then they go and catch some Z's

I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
I roam wherever I please
I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
Come sail away with me

For dinner on the S.S. Bathtub
We all eat mac & cheese
I don't use salt and I don't use pepper
'Cause I don't want the whales to sneeze

We love to play on the S.S. Bathtub
With our blocks and our frisbees
We make up songs and we put on plays
And we never watch TVs

I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
I roam wherever I please
I am the Captain of the S.S. Bathtub
Come sail away with me

    General CommentA kid's song that's won a ton of awards...David didn't think it was that great of a song when he wrote it, though. Also, every rhyme is with an E, on purpose.
