LILY THE PINK (3)

Brother Tony,
Was known to be bony,
He would never eat his meals,
So they gave him medicinal compound,
Now they move him round on wheels.

Johnny Hammer,
Had a teribble st-st-st-stammer,
He could hardly s-s-say a word,
So they gave him medicinal compound,
Now he's seen but never heard.

Jennifer Eccles, had terrible freckles
And the boys all called her names
So they gave her medicinal compound
Now she joins in all their games

Mr Frears, had sticky out ears
And it made him awful shy
So they gave him medicinal compound,
Now he's learning how to fly

Old Ebenezer,
Thought he was Julius Caesar,
So they put him in a home,
And they gave him medicinal compound,
Now he's Emperor of Rome

Lily the pink, she
Turned to drink, she
Filled up with parafin inside,
So they gave her medicinal compound
But sadly pickled Lily died.

Lily died and went up to heaven
All the church bells, they did ring.
She took with her medicinal compound;
Hark the Herald Angels sing.

Note: the chorus is the same as the other version.
