Reminds me of the Scaffold song......Lily the Pink.

"For she invented, medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case"

She (and Mr Kipling) helped inspire the title.

As you may know, Lily was based on Lydia Pinkum.

Here's a stanza from a song about her:

"Oh Mrs. Murphy (Oh Mrs. Murphy)
Was perturbed because she couldn't seem to pee
Till she took some of Lydia's compound
And now they run a pipeline to the sea!"

I had no idea about this.......I just assumed it was an original song and idea from the Scaffold. Brilliant :)
