OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well four ladies chain straight across the ring
You chain the ladies right on home you go
You join your hands, circle left go walking 'round the ring
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
We'll drink, a-drink, a-drink to Lily the Pink, the Pink, the Pink
Swing your girl and promenade her home
For she invented, medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the heads square thru count it four hand around you do
To the corner touch 1/4, scoot back and go
Boys run right, a right & left thru turn her tonight
Ladies lead in dixie style
Now the boys cross run, single hinge, scoot back
Swing your corner, promenade her home
For she invented, medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case


TAG

Swing with your girl
Most efficacious in every case

Lily The Pink

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

Mr. Frears 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
Most efficacious in every case

Old Ebeneezer thought he was Julius Caesar
And so they put him in a Home
Where they gave him medicinal compound
And now he's Emperor of Rome

Johnny Hammer had a terrible stammer
He could hardly say a word
And so they gave him medicinal compound
Now he's seen (but never heard)!

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

Auntie Millie ran willy-nilly
When her legs, they did recede
And so they rubbed on medicinal compound
And now they call her Millipede

Jennifer Eccles had terrible freckles
And the boys all called her names
But she changed with medicinal compound
And now he joins in all their games

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

Oooooooooooooooo Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'lll 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

Lyrics by John Gorman, Mike McGear and Roger McGough.
Recorded by The Scaffold.
