Shower Song

Cleansing Time

Because It's Needed

Preface: I wrote this song as a freshman in high school. The reason I wrote it came from the simple fascination of reading about hobbits having a bathing song as seen in Fellowsip of the Ring. Desiring to sing something in the shower to celebrate this experience, I penned the following words. On occassion, I do still sing them in the shower.

A lovely clean shower

Like raindrops on flowers.

Water drips down my body

I’m feeling so free!

This feels like a wish

Heaven giving me a kiss.

How lucky are fish

to stay in this eternal bliss.

Time is awaying,

But my soap is a staying.

I ought to be going,

The steam just keeps growing.

But my heart’s in Paradise because….

A lovely clean shower

Like raindrops on flowers

Water drips down my body

I’m feeling so free!

I don't think anyone should . . .go without bathing for long. Hey, if singing in the shower makes the world smell better-then I'm all for it!

Hey, Elefanza, you should make a short screen. . .commercial, or film.

I do agree most heartily. However, I also heard a repot talking about how NOT bathing increases pheremones and so can see the advantage if that is true.

Short screen? Commercial? Film? Interesting thoughts! Perhaps I should look into it. At the moment, I am currently in love with print as it offers more control. Yeah, words!
