Shaving Cream (song)

Shaving Cream (song)

"Shaving Cream" is a song written by Benny Bell in 1946. Phil Winston (using the pseudonym, Paul Wynn) sang the original version. It is a novelty song which uses innuendo with the verses ending in a way that implies that the next word is "shit", while the refrain begins with the words "Shaving Cream," with exaggerated emphasis on the "sh" sound.

:"I have a sad story to tell you:It may hurt your feelings a bit:Last night when I walked into my bathroom:I stepped in a big pile of ...shhhhh . . . aving cream, :be nice and clean. . . .:Shave ev'ry day and you'll always look keen."

After the song began to be played on the the Dr. Demento radio show in the 1970s, Vanguard Records reissued the song in 1975, and it became a hit, peaking at #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. [ [] ] Bell recorded a new verse as a salute to Dr. Demento, following it with "You thought I was gonna say ---."fact|date=October 2008

Dave Van Ronk famously performed this song at his shows over the years, and a version is included on the CD of rarities, "The Mayor of MacDougal Street".
