Lily the Pink
[G7] We'll [C] drink a drink a drink, To Lily the [G7] pink the pink the pink,
The saviour of, our human [C] race,
For she invented, medicinal [G7] compound,
Most efficacious, in every [C] case
Mr. [C] Freers, had sticky out [G7] ears, and it made him awful [C] shy,
So they gave him, medicinal [G] compound, and now he's learning how to [C] fly.
Brother [C] Tony, was notably [G7] bony, he would never eat his [C] meals
And so they gave him, medicinal [G7] compound, now they move him round on [C] wheels.
Old Ebe-[C]nezer thought he was Julius [G7] Caesar, and so they put him in a [C] home
Where they gave him, medicinal [G7] compound, and now he's emperor of [C] Rome.
Johnny [C] Hammer, had a terrible st st st st [G7] stammer, he could hardly s-s-say a [C] word,
And so they gave him, medicinal [G7] compound, now he's seen, but never [C] heard.
Auntie [C] Milly, ran willy [G7] nilly, when her legs they did [C] recede,
And so they rubbed on medicinal [G7] compound, now they call her Milly [C] Peed.
Jennifer [C] Eccles, had terrible [G7] freckles, and the boys all called her [C] names
But she changed with medicinal [G7] compounds, now he joins in all the [C] games
Lily the [C] pink she turned to [G7] drink, she filled up with paraffin [C] inside
And despite her medicinal [G7] compound, sadly Pickled Pily [C] died
Up to [C] heaven her soul [G7] ascended, oh the church bells they did [C] ring
She took with her medicinal [G7] compound, Hark the herald angels [C] sing
