IRISH ROVERS


Lily The Pink Lyrics

We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the pink the pink the pink
The savior of (the savior of) the human race.
She invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case


Here's a story, a little bit gory
A little bit happy, a little bit sad
Of Lily the Pink and her medicinal compound
And how it slowly drove her to the bad


Meet Ebenezer, thought he was Julius Caesar.
So they put him in a home.
And then they gave him medicinal compound,
And now he's Emperor of Rome.


We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the pink the pink the pink
The savior of (the savior of) the human race.
She invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case


And Freddie Clinger, the opera singer,
Who could break glasses with his voice they said.
So on his tonsils he rubbed medicinal compound,
And now they break glasses over his head.


Meet Johnny Hammer had a t-t-terrible s-s-stammer.
He could b-barely say a word.
So they gave him medicinal compound,
And now he's seen, but never heard.


We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the pink the pink the pink
The savior of (the savior of) the human race.
She invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case


And Uncle Paul, he was very small. He
Was the shortest man in town.
So on his body he rubbed medicinal compound,
And now he's six foot, but it's underground.


Lily died and went up to heaven.
Oh, the church bells they did ring.
She took with her medicinal compound.
Hark the herald angels sing.


We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the pink the pink the pink
The savior of (the savior of) the human race.
She invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case


We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the pink the pink the pink
The savior of (the savior of) the human race.
She invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case
