From the '70's, I think. I remember some of the lyrics. The song starts:

Oh I have always been a timid soul afraid of having fun I've let my golden chances slip away But now my ways have all been changed, a new day has begun And it happend in a most peculiar way.

The refrain has the line:

Drink Dr. Jekyl's cola and you'll never have to hide ....

Isn't he the one who said, "We have nothing to hide but hide itself?" :>))

Sounds like a larky tune, wish I knew it!

I have the record and lyrics at home, but I'm going to be too busy to dig it out for a couple of weeks. Still, if nobody else comes up with it sooner, I'll put them up.

Hollowfox-

Looks like you the best hope! It is, as said, a larky tune.

From a directory on my computer full of song lyrics I got from a friend. Need to learn this one someday myself. (Probably not for Getaway though. Already too many songs I'm trying to cram into my brain.)

DR. JEKYLL'S COLA
(Bill Steele)

Well, I've always been a timid soul, afraid of having fun.
I let my golden chances slip away.
But now my ways have all been changed, a new life has begun,
and it happened in a most peculiar way.

This man came up to me one day and whispered in my ear
"I've got something you'll be awfully glad you tried.
It will free your inhibitions, it will banish all your fears.
We call it Dr. Jekyll's Cola 'cause you'll never have to hide!"

Chorus:
He said "Drink Dr. Jekyll's Cola and your world will open wide.
You will satisfy those urges that have always been denied,
You will liberate the swinger that was buried deep inside.
If you drink Dr. Jekyll's Cola then you'll never have to hide!"

Well, I handed over fifty bucks and bought a case right there.
You know, he didn't even give me change.
He popped a bottle open and said "Drink it if you dare!"
I did and started right in feeling strange!

My shoes turned into sandals, and my slacks to tie-dyed jeans.
My shirt and tie just vanished in the air.
Emblazoned on my t-shirt was a word I'd found obscene,
And suddenly I noticed I was growin' longer hair.

Chorus: If you drink …

I made some money selling pot, and leased a swingin' pad.
Invited over all the girls I knew.
I went and bought a Berkley Barb and I answered every ad.
That kept me busy for a week or two.

I joined the Sexual Freedom League, but found them much too tame,
So I searched around for other games to play.
I moved into the "jet-set" and achieved some minor fame
By workin' out a method for seducin' Doris Day.

Chorus: When you drink …

If you want the formula, the best way to begin
Is with those things the preachers have proscribed.
I bought a book the church put out to warn us against sin
And practiced each perversion it described.

At first I thought I might run out of pleasures to embrace,
But endless was the list of things denied.
So I go to bed each morning with a smile upon my face.
I'm usually exhausted, but I'm always satisfied!

Chorus: If you drink …
