Baby Powder.
ain't it nice,
white as white rice.
smells almost as good
as Old Spice.

soft & tender.
'specially on the rear ender.
rash mender.
soothin' sender.
stay up winder.

takes ya' back
ta' those tender years.
shampoo with "no tears".
Life with no fears.

ain't it sad
ya' forget what ya' had
when there was mom & dad
and Baby Powder.

Baby Powder.
all ya' had ta' do
was scream louder
& they'd do it to ya'.

mom & dad were prouder
when they dusted ya'
with Baby Powder.
