About Rubber Duckie

"Rubber Duckie" is a song sung by the Muppet character Ernie (voiced by Jim Henson) on Sesame Street. The song is named after Ernie's toy, a rubber duck affectionately named Rubber Duckie. The song, written by Jeff Moss and arranged by Joe Raposo, was first heard by children watching an episode of Sesame Street on February 25, 1970. It was popular enough to be recorded as a 45 rpm single and became a surprise mainstream hit, peaking at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 26, 1970. It was nominated for the Best Recording for Children Grammy in 1971 but lost out to the album The Sesame Street Book & Record, which contained the song. The song had follow-ups "Do De Rubber Duck" and "D-U-C-K-I-E" and was the centerpiece of 1988's "Put Down the Duckie", performed by Hoots the Owl but also featuring Ernie.

Well, here I am in my tubby again
And my tubby's all filled with water and nice fluffy suds
And I've got my soap and washcloth to wash myself
And I've got my nifty scrub brush to help me scrub my back
And I've got a big fluffy towel to dry myself when I'm done
But there's one other thing that makes tubby time the very best time of the whole day
And do you know what that is? 
It's a very special friend of mine my very favorite little pal

Rubber duckie you're the one
You make bath time lots of fun
Rubber duckie I'm awfully fond of you

Rubber duckie joy of joys
When I squeeze you, you make noise
Rubber duckie you're my very best friend it's true

Oh, every day when I make my way to the tubby
I find a little fellow who's cute and yellow and chubby

Rub-a-dub-dubby
Rubber duckie, you're so fine
And I'm lucky that you're mine
Rubber duckie, I'm awfully fond of you

Hey, rubber duckie would you like me to scrub your back with my little nifty scrub brush?
You would okay, how's this? 
Hey, you want me to scrub behind your ears? 
Oh, I see you don't have any ears, do you? 
Well, how about your tummy? 
Scrub his little duckie tummy
Oh, he's ticklish oh-hoo

Oh, every day when I make my way to the tubby
I find a little fellow who's cute and yellow and chubby

Rub-a-dub-dubby!
Rubber duckie, you're so fine
And I'm lucky that you're mine

Rubber duckie, I'd like a whole pond of
Rubber duckie, I'm awfully fond of you
