How 'bout a waltz?


Take a blue one, a pink one, a red one, a yellow
Whatever may ail you there's a pill for that fellow
Swallow it dry or down with the whiskey
'Till the Shambles are dancing and the girls are getting frisky

Tell me good sir, do you want to see the world?
From the mountains to the canyons and the winds as they swirl
Well I've got what you need, it'll do just the trick
All your dreams and desires all in one lick

At Mr. Medicimo's Medicine Show!

A round one a square one in all shapes and size
Take one, take another, take three, four, or five
This one cures headaches and this one your mind
From heartaches to mistakes and pains of all kind

Dear boy, come close, do not be shy
One by the mouth takes you higher than high
To the treetops where we swing low and the cannonball skies
Where we float on the clouds and the sun burns your eyes

At Mr. Medicimo's Medicine Show!

Your eyes they will widen, your heart it will pound
Oh your mind it will race and your head it will sound
All this will make for the time of your life
It will bend you, and break you, and cure you from strife

Good woman, come here, I mean you no harm
I swear it won't hurt just a prick in your arm

At Mr. Medicimo's Medicine Show!
