Ivory Soap, my eyes light up when your bubbles fill the air.
They please me more than all the toys I played with anywhere.
Ivory Soap, oh Ivory Soap! With every breath I draw,
Ivory Soap, you fill my jaded heart with awe.
With liquid colors swirling like a ghost’s kaleidoscope,
Your globes of crystalline beauty made me ever upward grope.
But as I strove to chase the rainbows up the all too stony slope,
They vanished when I touched them in a burst of Ivory Soap.
When I’ve wallowed in the weariness that grownups come to know,
You wash me ’til I glisten, in your iridescent flow,
Until my long-forgotten innocence, the taste of excitement and hope
Come rushing to the surface like a bar of Ivory Soap.
