Listen to song while you read lyrics!

We’ll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the pink the pink the pink
The savior of the human race.
She invented medicinal compounds.
Most efficacious in every case.

Now here’s a story
A little bit gory
A little bit happy
A little bit sad
Of Lily the pink and
Her medicinal compounds.
And how it drove her to the bad.

Ol’ Ebenezer
Thought he was Julius Ceasar
So they put him in the home.
There they gave him medicinal compound,
Now he’s Emperor of Rome.

Freddy Klinger.
The opera singer
Could break a glass with his voice
‘Tis said.
Rubbed his tonsils
With medicinal compounds
Now they break glasses over his head.

Johnny Hammer
Had a t-t-terrible stammer.
He could hardly s-s-say a word.
So they g-g-gave him
Medicinal compounds.
Now he’s s-s-seen
But never heard.


Uncle Paul, he
Was very small, he
Was the shortest man in town.
Rubbed his body
With medicinal compounds.
Now he weighs only half a pound.

Lily died and
Went up to heaven.
All the church bells
They did ring.
She took with her
Medicinal compounds.
Hark the herald angels sing.
