Chorus: You remember Gretchen’s Lye Soap good for ever thing in the home, but the secret was in the scrubbing, it wouldn’t suds and couldn’t foam.
So let us sing, sing right out for Gretchen’s lye soap, let us sing all over the place.
The pots and kettles, the dirty dishes, and for your hands and for your face.
Little Early and cousin Curly had an aversion to washing their ears.
Gretchen scrubbed them with her lye soap and now they haven’t heard a word in years
Mrs O’ Tally down in the valley sufferd from olsers I understand.
She swallowed a cake of Gretchen’s lye soap and has the cleanest olsers in the land
Have a guy run on stage itching him self and tell another scout “I’ve got bad poison Ivy” The other scout gives him a bar of soap. Scout looks at soap puzzled. Then washes off after first chorus
