OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Splish, splash I was takin' a bath
Along about Saturday night
Rub-a-dub, splashin' in the tub
A-thinkin' everything was alright

4 girls promenade inside go one time around
Swing your man and promenade on down
Splish, splash just a-takin' a bath
How was I to know there was a party going on

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade you move it halfway around
Touch 1/4, boys run right
Do a right & left thru, turn 'em there, veer left
Circulate, then chain down the line
Touch 1/4, girls run right
Swing that guy and now promenade alright
Splish, splash just a-takin' a bath
How was I to know there was a party going on


Come on the 4 boys promenade one time you know
Get back and swing your lady round you know
Join all your hands, circle left in time
Well do an allemande left your corner, gonna weave down the line
*There was a Lolly-pop and Peggy Sue
Good golly Miss Molly was even there too
Splish, splash just a-takin' a bath
How was I to know there was a party going on


*Rollin' and a strollin', movin' and a groovin'
Allemande left, swing and promenade

*Rockin' and a rollin', reelin' with the feelin'


A party going on

Splish Splash

Splish splash, I was takin' a bath
Long about a Saturday night
A rub-a-dub, just relaxin' in the tub
Thinkin' everything was alright
Well, I stepped out the tub, put my feet on the floor,
I wrapped the towel around me and I
Opened the door, and then I
Splish, splash! I jumped back in the bath.
Well how was I to know there was a party going on?
They was a-splishin' and a-splashin'
Reelin' with the feelin', movin' and a-groovin'
Rockin' and a-rollin', yeah!

Bing bang, I saw the whole gang
Dancin' on my living room rug, yeah!
Flip flop, they was doin' the bop
All the teens had the dancin' bug
There was Lollipop with-a Peggy Sue
Good Golly, Miss Molly was-a even there, too!
A-well-a, splish splash, I forgot about the bath
I went and put my dancin' shoes on, yay

I was a rollin' and a strollin', reelin' with the feelin'
moving and a groovin, splishin' and a splashin', yeah!

Yes, I was a-splishin' and a-splashin'
I was a-rollin' and a-strollin'
Yeah, I was a-movin' and a-groovin'

We was a-reelin' with the feelin'
We was a-rollin' and a-strollin'
Movin' with the groovin'
Splish splash, yeah!

Lyrics by Bobby Darin and Jean Murray.
