Miss Lucy’s Playground Songs

Miss Lucy

Posted on: August 6, 2008

You have found the song that is this blogs name sake.

In looking on the internet, the version I recall is most like the 2nd version from Bus Songs.

But I do remember the verse

Dark is like a movie
A movie’s like a show
A show is like a tv show
And that is all I know.

as well.

[...] is interesting about this version of the Tiny Tim song, is that the 2nd verse of it is the Miss Lucy Steam Boat [...]

I loved this one
Also known as: Miss Suzy

I had a different version of this one- much of the first part is similar to what people already have posted but I had an extra few lines at the end:

Miss Suzie had a steam boat
The steamboat had a bell (ding ding)
Miss Suzie went to heaven

D-A-R-K, D-A-R-K, Dark, Dark
Dark is like a movie

A show is like a tv show
And that is all I know
I know my ma
I know I know my pa
I know I know my sister
With the 80 meter bra
My mother is Godzilla
My father is King Kong
My brother is the stupid one
Who made up this dumb song, song song!

Katie,

Thanks for your contributions. I just love how there are so many different versions of these songs.

We always called this “Miss Molly”

Miss Molly had a steamboat.
The steamboat had a bell.
Miss Molly went to heaven.
The steamboat went to

Hello operator.
Please give me number nine.
And If you disconnect me
I’ll kick you in your

Behind the ‘frigerator
There was a piece of glass
Miss Molly sat upon it
And broke her little

Ask me no more questions.
I’ll tell you no more lies.
The Cows are in the pasture
Making chocolate pies
The boys are in the restroom
Making Mountain Dew! Dew! Dew!

In my neighborhood, there was another version entirely, which was considered the proper version. The steamboat version was considered a “bad word” version of this.

Miss Lucy had a baby
His name was 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 almost ate the bathtub
but it wouldn’t go down his throat

Miss Lucy called the doctor
Miss Lucy called the nurse
Miss Lucy called the lady
with the alligator purse

In walked the doctor
In walked the nurse
In walked the lady
with the alligator purse

Mmm humm said the doctor
Ah ha said the nurse
Nothing said the lady
with the alligator purse

Out walked the doctor
Out walked the nurse
Out walked the lady
with the alligator purse

Out walked Miss Lucy
Out walked Tiny Tim
Miss Lucy never found out
If Tiny Tim could swim
