Lyrics for 'The Lady with the Alligator Purse'

Miss Susie 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 Susie called the doctor.
The doctor called the nurse.
The nurse called the lady
With the alligator purse.

Out ran the doctor.
Out ran the nurse.
Out ran the lady
With the alligator purse.

And now Tiny Tim
Is home sick in bed,
With soap in his throat
And bubbles in his head.
