Song Lyrics

Murray had a turtle

I called him Tiny Tim

He put him in the bath tub

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 put him down his throat.

Murray called the doctor

The doctor called the nurse

The nurse called the lady with the polka dotted purse.

In walked the doctor

In walked the nurse

In walked the lady with the polka dotted purse.

"Ooh" said the doctor

"Ah" said the nurse

"Fab" said the lady with the polka dotted purse.

Murray thanked the doctor

Murray thanked the nurse

Murray thanked the lady with the polka dotted purse.
