  • Shaving Cream
    (Many thanks to Benny Bell for these...lyrics.)

    I have a sad story to tell you
    It may hurt your feelings a bit
    Last night when I walked into my bathroom
    I stepped in a big pile of
         Shaving cream, be nice and clean
         Shave everyday and you'll always look keen

    I think I'll break off with my girlfriend
    Her antics are queer I'll admit
    Each time I say, "Darling, I love you"
    She tells me that I'm full of
         Shaving cream, be nice and clean
         Shave everyday and you'll always look keen

    Our baby fell out of the window
    You'd think that her head would be split
    But good luck was with her that morning
    She fell in a barrel of
         Shaving cream, be nice and clean
         Shave everyday and you'll always look keen

    An old lady died in a bathtub
    She died from a terrible fit
    In order to fulfill her wishes
    She was buried in six feet of
         Shaving cream, be nice and clean
         Shave everyday and you'll always look keen

    When I was in France with the army
    One day I looked into my kit
    I thought I would find me a sandwich
    But the darn thing was loaded with
         Shaving cream, be nice and clean
         Shave everyday and you'll always look keen

    And now, folks, my story is ended
    I think it is time I should quit
    If any of you feel offended
    Stick your head in a barrel of
         Shaving cream, be nice and clean
         Shave everyday and you'll always look keen
