John Lithgow also does a version of this song that's a good take off Crumb's version with the added lyrics

You can be Sinatra
Soaking while you croon (Doo-be-Doo-be Doooo! [strangers in the night])
Hitting all the high notes
Never out of tune.

Singin' every number
From your favorite show (Oooooooak-lahoma!)
Coming down from Forte
To Pianissimo

Ready for a rub
C7
Everyone is happy
C7 F
While singing in the tub

Let the Whole wide nation worry over cash
I get compensation in hearing water splash!
Never any troubles cross my bathroom path
Bathing in those bubbles, I'm the knight of the bath

Singing in the bathtub
sitting all alone
Tearing out a tonsil
Just like a baritone

Never take a shower
It's an awful pain
Singing in the shower
Is like singing in the rain.

Oh, there is dirt to be abolished
But do not forget one thing
While your body's washed and polished
Sing brother sing!

You can yodel opera
Even while you scrub
Everyone is happy
While singing in the tub.
