My bathtub runneth over

Lots of reasons to post this one: I love Johnny Mercer's lyrics, especially when Johnny Mercer is singing them.  I love this song, The Bathtub Ran Over Again, in which he's abetted by Stirling Bose, cornet, Jack Teagarden, trombone, Fulton McGrath, piano, and Dick McDonough, guitar. Our friend Tina and my blogfather, the learned Dr. Steinmetz, love the song, too. One more reason to post it: to give you a smile this fine day.


  1. As far back as I can remember (I am now 72)I have always loved the music of Johnny Mercer. What a wonderful blog, and also a great treat to hear him sing, No one like him. Thank you for the joy these blogs give to people like me,

  2. I should be thanking you, Ida. One comment like that makes it all worthwhile.
