It had to be done

via Daily Prompt: Pink

After seeing the Prompt my immediate thought was of the Scaffold. No, not scaffolding, the Scaffold and their hit novelty number Lily the Pink (not to be confused with the model Lily Pink), a number which has frequently​ spawned many conspiracy theories as to what the ‘medicinal compound’ is, with many saying Speed or LSD. The truth may surprise you….

 

The song is in fact based on the Ballad of Lydia Pinkham which was a film/drinking song about Lydia E Pinkham’s E Vegetable Remedy, a herbal alcoholic remedy for woman designed to treat period and menopausal pain.
