Lily The Pink

  • (Trad / Iain C. MacKintosh / Hamish Imlach)

    Oh we'll drink, we'll drink, we'll drink
    To Lily the Pink, the Pink, the Pink
    The saviour of the human race
    She invented medicinal compound
    Most effective in every case

    Auntie Minnie was thin and skinny, all flat and nowhere round
    Then they gave her medicinal compound, and now she weighs five hundred pounds

    Maggie Thatcher, our money snatcher, making trouble all the time
    Then they gave her medicinal compound, she even loves the Argentine
    And she's working down a mine

    President Ronnie won't ban the bomb, he doesn't want no peace at all
    Then they gave him medicinal compound, he sings the Internationale

    Sylvester Stallone was skinny and boney, and his muscles never grew
    Then they gave him medicinal compound, now he's Rocky XXII

    Maggie Thatcher, no one can match her, she used to hate St Patrick's Day
    Then they gave her medicinal compound, and now she's joined the IRA

    Comrade Gorbachev was always sore because he only drank tea from his samovar
    Then they gave him medicinal compound, Whack fol the daddy o
    Whack fol the daddy o, there's vodka in the jar

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh and Hamish Imlach)
