The Lyrics

jan miner...1917-2004
thinkin' 'bout palmolive poured from a jar
thinkin' 'bout the ads that had made you a star
and i'm thinkin' 'bout your work at the manicure table

i know it was on broadway, you made your mark
the ads that you were on, you just did for a lark
but i know the cash they made, kept your bank account stable

yes, you took me by the hand and calmed me down
on the road to better skin, i'm bound
you said i'd have the softest hands around
palmolive was so well reknowned
yes, palmolive was so safe and sound

talkin' 'bout my nails...they look just like new
you always took your time...the best you could do
i'm soakin' in that stuff, everytime that i'm able

The sad part is---I'm old enough to have remembered Madge. :-D

Serendipity - Pippin and I were just discussing Madge and Palmolive yesterday as we were working them into an in-the-works parody! :-0

You really blended the original lyrics/rhymes with the parody well--a skill that I think is often underrated. Beautiful job.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane! Nicely done! There was one recurring line in every one of those commercials that always cracked me up... After Madge sings the praises of Palmolive, she says to her customer, "You're soaking in it." The customer pulls her hand out, looking horrified, and shouts "DISHWASHING LIQUID?!?" Madge reassures her by saying "Relax, it's Palmolive." Huh?
