♪ ♫ ♬ SPLISH SPLASH ♪ ♫ ♬ ....... I was taking a bath ...

88 comments


Inspired by Bobby Darin’s song

♪ ♫ ♬ Splish, splash, I was taking a bath,

On the morning of a spring time day ♪ ♫ ♬

♪ ♫ ♬ Rub-a-dub-dub, just relaxing in the tub,

Thinking everything was okay ♪ ♫ ♬



……………………………………………………

♪ ♫ ♬ Well, I stepped out of the tub,

Stood my feet on the floor ♪ ♫ ♬

♪ ♫ ♬ Puffed up my feathers,

And I opened the door ♪ ♫ ♬



……………………………………………………

♪ ♫ ♬ Then I jumped back in the bath,

Well, how was I to know ? … ♪ ♫ ♬



……………………………………………………

♪ ♫ ♬ … there was a party going on !!! ♪ ♫ ♬

♪ ♫ ♬ Bing, bong, I saw the garden gang …

The flowers rocked and the trees all sang !!! ♪ ♫ ♬

…………………………………………………….

♪ ♫ ♬ The daffodils were dancing ♪ ♫ ♬




…………………………………………………..

♪ ♫ ♬ The primroses a-prancing ♪ ♫ ♬




……………………………………………………

♪ ♫ ♬ Camellias a-bopping ♪ ♫ ♬




…………………………………………………….

♪ ♫ ♬ The heathers all a-hopping ♪ ♫ ♬




…………………………………………………….

♪ ♫ ♬ The rockeries were reeling ♪ ♫ ♬



…………………………………………………..

♪ ♫ ♬ Ajuga ~ so appealing ♪ ♫ ♬




……………………………………………………


♪ ♫ ♬ A-swaying and a-grooving,

My mirrors kept a-moving ♪ ♫ ♬



……………………………………………………


♪ ♫ ♬ We hope you have a happy, chirpy day ♪ ♫ ♬



……………………………………………………


♪ ♫ ♬ A-splishing and a-splashing all the way ♪ ♫ ♬



♪ ♫ ♬ Rub-a-dub ♪ ♫ ♬

♪ ♫ ♬ Everything’s okay ♪ ♫ ♬ :o)

Yes, the garden birds are becoming more active ... flirting, bathing and courting !

Crocus has searched on GoY for budgie girlfriends, some very attractive budgies, but they all seem to be boys ... such as Holly's Sky and 230338's Tiny ...

... so he now has his eye on a bigger bird ... Lol. ... Gee19's Poppy, the Peach-faced Lovebird... ... :o)

18 Mar, 2011
