Lyrics

(Chorus)
We’ll drink a drink a drink
To lily the pink the pink the pink
The saviour of our human race
For she invented, medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case

Mr freers had sticky out ears
And it made him awful shy
And so they gave him medicinal compound
And now he’s learning how to fly

Brother Tony was notably bony
He would never eat his meals
And so they gave him medicinal compound
Now they move him round on wheels

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
Mosr efficacious in every case

Old Ebenezer thought he was Julius Caesar
And so they put him in a home
Where they gave him medicnal compound
And now he’s emporor of Rome

Jonny Hammer, had a terrible st st st st stammer
He could hardly sssay a word
And so they gave him medicinal compound
Now’s he’s seen, but never heard

Chorus

Aunty Milly ran willy nilly
When her legs they did recede
So they looked on medicinal compound
Now they call her milipede

Jennifer Eccles, had terrible freckles
And the boys all called her names
But they gave her medicinal compound
Now he joins in all the games

Chorus

Lily the pink she turned to drink
She filled up with parafin inside
And despite her medicinal compound
Sadly piccalilli died

Up to heaven her soul ascended
All the church bells they did ring
She took with her medicinal compound
Hark the herald angels sing
