The Scaffold - Lily The Pink download album
Lily the Pink" is a 1968 song released by the UK comedy group The Scaffold. It is a modernisation of an older folk song titled "The Ballad of Lydia Pinkham". The lyrics celebrate the "medicinal compound" invented by Lily the Pink, and chronicle the "efficacious" cures it has brought about, such as inducing morbid obesity to cure a weak appetite, or bringing about a sex change as a remedy for freckles.
Album The Very Best of The Scaffold. Lily The Pink Lyrics. 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 Most efficacious in every case. Lily the Pink, she turned to drink She filled up with paraffin inside And despite her medicinal compound Sadly pickled Lily 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.
