I have a song stuck in my head from when I was a kid- cant remember what it's called, I'd like to teach it to my kids! Anyone know it?

It's that song or nursery rhyme type of thing that said "He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap, he tried to eat the bathtub, but it wouldnt fit down his throat, shot said the dr, shot said the nurse, shot said the lady with the alligator purse." Thats all I remember. Does anyone know what it was called or anymore of the lyrics? Thanks!

Tiny Tim
Wanda L. contributes this rhyme
There was a little turtle,
 His name was tiny tim.
 I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim.
 He drank up all the water,
 He ate up all the soap,
 And now he is in the bathtub,
 With a bubble in his throat.
 Bubble, bubble,bubble,
 Bubble, bubble, bubble,
 Bubble, bubble, bubble,
 Bubble, bubble, pop!


Is that it?

Miss Susie had a baby, she named it Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub, to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap
He tried to eat the bathtub but it wouldn't go down his throat.
Miss Susie called the doctor, the doctor called the nurse, the nurse called the lady with the alligator purse
In walked the doctor, in walked the nurse, in walked the lady with the alligator purse
Mumps said the doctor, measles said the nurse, nothing said the lady with the alligator purse
Tiny Tim got better, Tiny Tim got worse, Tiny Tim got eaten up by the alligator purse!

OR - here are some other versions.

I thinks that might be a different version of it- it's similar, but not quite how I remember it. That is a cute version, though! Thanks!

Miss Suzie had a baby
She named it Tiny Tim
She put it in the bathtub
To see if it could swim
He drank up all the water
He ate up all the soap
He tried to eat the bathtub
But it wouldn't go down his throat
Miss Suzie called the doctor
Miss Suzie called the nurse
Miss Suzie called the lady with the alligator purse
Measles said the doctor
Mumps said the nurse
Nothing said the lady with the alligator purse
Miss Suzie kicked the doctor
Miss Suzie punched the nurse
Miss Suzie paid the lady with the alligator purse

Lady with the Aliigator Purse:


Miss Lucy had a baby

his name was Tiny Tim

she put him in the bathtub

to see if he could swim.

He drunk up all the water,

he ate up all the soap,

he tried to swallow the bathroom sink

but it wouldnt go down his throat.

Miss Lucy called the doctor

Miss Lucy called the nurse

Miss Lucy called the lady with the alligator purse.

Measles! said the doctor

Mumps! said the nurse

Nothing! said the lady with the alligator purse.

Miss Lucy kicked the doctor

Miss Lucy punched the nurse

Miss Lucy paid the lady with the alligator purse!

we knew it as a "hand-clap" game: two girls clapping and slapping hands together in a rhythm pattern throughout the verse.

might work as a jump rope song. too
