This hilarious collection goes straight to the heart of playground humor. What made On Top of Spaghetti such an integral part of popular culture is what makes these selections so equally successful. Well-known songs like Take Me Out to the Ballgame, My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean, and I've Been Working on the Railroad become - with a wink, a poke, and nod - Take Me Out of the Bathtub, The Yogurt Flies Straight from My Brother, and I've Been Cleaning Up My Bedroom.
Featuring hilarious parody lyrics set to well-known tunes, Alan Katz's award-winning Silly Dilly Songs have been sung by kids of all ages since 2001. Happily, the songbook that started it all - Take Me Out of the Bathtub - is now available in this fun-filled audio collection. Get ready to sing along and laugh your head off to tunes about food fights, messy bedrooms, stinky diapers and much more! Also look for I'm Still Here in the Bathtub, another collection of Silly Dilly Songs to sing and love!
Take me out of the bathtub
The yogurt flies straight from my brother
I've been cleaning up my bedroom
Stinky stinky diaper change
Brother Mitch
Go go go to bed
Bobby, put the TV on
Cranky poodle
Ripped my favorite T-shirt
Sock in the gravy
Give me a break
I have a baby-sitter here with me
I'm filthy, I'm dirty
I'm so carsick.

Booklist Review: "Ages 3-6. Katz, a comedy writer who has worked on children's programming for Disney and Nickelodeon has created his own "silly dilly" versions of beloved childhood tunes. Kids will rejoice in the hilarious, "I'm Filthy, I'm Dirty," sung to the tune of "It's Raining, It's Pouring," and parents have songs to celebrate, too: "Go Go Go to Bed" is a clever remake of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat." With the possible exception of the lesser-known "Polly, Put the Kettle On," most children will be familiar with the original versions of these songs, which will make it easy for them to join right in. Catrow's animated double-spread pictures are at least as silly as the song lyrics, offering action-filled scenes bursting with odd-looking creatures. For an easy enrichment activity, have kids create a silly-dilly adaptation of their own. --Lauren Peterson"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Songwriter and television comedy writer Katz provides ludicrous lyrics to 14 traditional tunes, offering playful parodies on some familiar routines. To the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," a boy wearing roller skates claims he has been soaking so long in the tub that he "used one, two, three bars of soap/ Take me out... I'm clean!" Other amusing entries include "I've Been Cleaning Up My Bedroom" (sung to "I've Been Working on the Railroad"), in which a girl tidies her room by shoving all of her belongings "out the door," which Catrow (She's Wearing a Dead Bird on Her Head!) interprets quite literally (he shows her bureau, goldfish, etc., piling up in the back yard), and "Give Me a Break" (sung to the tune of "Home on the Range"), introducing a child whose library book is long overdue. A few songs do not scan so well (e.g., this verse set to the tune of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean": "My brother flicks peas with his fork and/ They zip down my shirt with a splat/ Next I see a big piece of pork land/ On my head like it's a new hat!"). But the subjects (a sibling with a stinky diaper, a youngster who refuses to go to bed, a cranky poodle think "Yankee Doodle") teamed with Catrow's outlandish illustrations, as hyperbolic as the words, will have kids giggling as they sing.
