lyrics

Happy medicine day to you, dear blues
Can you penicillin me in right after the aspirin?
Happy medicine day to you, dear blues
Can you penicillin me in right after the aspirin?

I’ve done a good job of staying out of your world
Please stay out of mine now
And speaking of versatile, I’ve got a virtual arsenal.

Supernovacaine! Supernovacaine!
An aversion to pain, fingernails and nicotine.
So happy medicine day to you, dear blues.

So before you blow out the candles
Before you open that lid
Just make a wish
Make it good
Here’s some water
Are you ready? Yeah.
