Thread Name: Lyr Add: Lily the Pink
Subject: RE: LYR ADD - Lily the Pink
In addition to the verses listed by Steve Parkes, the Irish Rovers had a version of Lily the Pink, on they're "Years May Come, Years May Go" cassette, which included the following:

Now here's a story, a little bit gory,
A little bit happy, a little bit sad.
Of Lily the Pink and her medicinal compound,
And how it drove her to the bad.

Freddie Klinger, the opera singer,
Could break a glass with his voice, they said.
Rubbed his tonsils with medicinal compound,
Now they break glasses over his head.

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.
