Silly little episode about a mythical character from the past. Make up your own verses about Dan Tucker. "Old Dan Tucker took a bath, he scrubbed his toes and he scrubbed his nose." Etc. Then everybody sings the chorus uproariously. Lots of fun. That what this song was written for (back in American Civil War times), a crowd to sing and have lots of fun with. Great for singing in the bathtub OR the car! Try putting off the final "Looking" as long as you can.

lyrics

Old Dan Tucker was a might man,
he washed his face in a frying pan,
Combed his hair with a wagon wheel,
And died with a toothache in his heel.

Oh get out of the way, Old Dan Tucker!
You're too late to get your supper!
Supper's done and dinner's cooking,
But Old Dan Tucker just stands there...looking.

Old Dan Tucker came into town.
The dogs came running from miles around.
Cats and canaries and goldfish too,
So Old Dan Tucker started a zoo!

Oh get out of the way, Old Dan Tucker!
You're too late to get your supper!
Supper's done and dinner's cooking,
But Old Dan Tucker just stands there....looking.

Old Dan Tucker got on the bus.
The passengers all raised a fuss.
With boots on his head and a hat on the ground
Old Dan Tucker's dressed upside down!

Oh get out of the way, Old Dan Tucker!
You're too late to get your supper!
Supper's done and dinner's cooking,
But Old Dan Tucker just stands there........looking.

I've been singing songs and enjoying music with families, professionally, for more than a decade. I'm not so much a performer (I save that for my "grownup" music in the evenings) as I am a facilitator, encouraging and enabling people to sing and make music on their own. Listening to somebody else sing a song is fine, but singing on your own and with your family can be much more fulfilling and fun! ... more
