CeltArctic Ewan macoll - any Humourous songs? (35) RE: Ewan macoll - any Humourous songs? 18 Sep 06


Didn't Leon Rosselson write a 'Pill' song - maybe not the one mentioned above. The chorus goes:

Pills, pills, pills and pills
Pills to take the pain away,
Just swallow 3, 4 times a day,
You'll be as good as new.

I have yellow, pink and orange ones—
