The song with lyricsEdit

“The Buzzing From the Bathroom” from "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

“The Buzzing From the Bathroom” from "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

Lyrics:

[Broadcast version opening]
Josh: Just feel like I’m faking it.
Paula: Tim, you have never given your wife an orgasm.
Rebecca: Fake being satisfied?
Mrs. Hernandez: Sounds like a vibrator.
Rebecca: You’re doing it wrong.
Paula: Not even once.

[Song start]
Tim:
Such profound humiliation.
Such all consuming shame.
The buzzing from the bathroom
has finally been explained.

That was no electric toothbrush.
No facial scrub device.
And now I finally know the meaning
of the words ‘Tim, that was nice.’

We used different positions
every other Sunday night.
All her writhing, moaning, sighing...
I thought I was doing it right.

But as I drifted off to slumber
thinking I had brought her joy
she would slink off to that bathroom
with that blasted plastic toy!

Oh that buzzing, cursed buzzing!
That damn, incessant hum!
I used to think I was a hero
can’t believe she didn’t come...
to tell me that she needed
so much more than I could give.

Now that buzzing from the bathroom
tells the lie that we both live.

What is pleasure but a union.
When with ones soul another joins,
yet I’m haunted by
the buzzing from the bathroom
like Tinnitus is of the loins.


TriviaEdit

HomageEdit

The song is likely inspired by the similar song "Empty Chairs and Empty Tables" from the musical "Les Miserables.”
Les Miserables - Empty Chairs at Empty Tables

Broadcast versionEdit

The opening sequence featuring snippets of dialogue from various characters on the show is not on the official release release of the song. Instead of that protracted introduction the song starts almost immeditaly without preamble and Tim starting to singing.
