From the MGM Picture \”The Band Wagon\”

Music by Arthur Schwartz; Lyric by Howard Dietz

Performed by Nanette Fabray, Fred Astaire and Jack Buchanan

but we first heard it performed by John Lithgow (and like his performance better) on his CD:

Singin’ in the Bathtub

Three little unexpected children

Simultaneously the doctor brought us in

you can see we’ll be three forever and

A E I O You wouldn’t know how agonising being triple can be

Each one is individually the victim of that clinical day (?)

…We do everything alike

We look alike

We dress alike

We walk alike

We talk alike

and what is more we hate each other very much

We hate our folks

We’re sick of jokes on what an art it is to tell us apart!
