      Aren't there more ceramic yard madonnas per square mile in Somerville than in any other city in America? This is gonna take him forever.

      Bathtub Mary

      By on

      I lived for two years in Catholictown, Iowa (i.e. Dubuque), and the local theatre troupe was doing a retrospective which involved the song "Bathtub Mary", sung to the tune of "Plastic Jesus":

      Bathtub Mary
      Bathtub Mary
      Sittin' near my front porch on my lawn
      I don't care if I'm fat and hairy
      Long as I got my bathtub Mary
      Sittin' near my front porch on my lawn!

      I don't remember the rest of the words, for which I'm sure you are all grateful.
