A song that Steve Martin (as Navin R. Johnson) sang to his beloved Marie (Bernadette Peters) while in the bathtub, in The Jerk. My father used to sing this to my mother when someone mentioned Thermoses. She hated it. It made me laugh though.

(Loudly and off-key, while splashing)
I'm picking out a Thermos for you
Not an ordinary thermos for you
But the extra best thermos you can buy
with vinyl
and stripes
and a cup built right in!

I'm picking out a Thermos for you
And maybe a barometer too.
And what else can I buy,
so on me you will rely,
a rear-end thermometer too.

Remember when Steve Martin was funny? Oh, those were the days...
