Lily the Pink (McGear, McGough, Gorman) 1(a) Now here's the story--a little bit gory A little bit happy--a little bit sad-- Lily the Pink and her medicinal compound And how it drove her to the bad. (b) Ebenezer thought he was Julius Caesar And so they put him in a home And then they gave him medicinal compound And now he's Emperor of Rome. cho: We'll drink a drink a drink To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink The saviour of the human race For she invented medicinal compound And now he's Emperor of Rome. 2(a) Ripley Twinger, the opera singer, Would take a glass for his voice to save He rubbed his tonsils with medicinal compound Now they break glasses over his head. (b) Johnny Hammer had a t-t-terrible stammer He could hardly s-s-say a word And so they g-g-gave him medicinal compound Now he's s-s-seen but never heard. (Chorus) 3(a) Uncle Paul, he was very small, he Was the shortest man in town He rubbed his body with medicinal compound Now he weighs only half a pound. (b) Lily died and went up to heaven All the church bells, they did ring. She took with her medicinal compound; Hark the Herald Angels sing. (Chorus) Very popular among the drinking class in England, who don't seem to know about Lydia Pinkham RG Publisher: Felicia Music AS oct97
