George Formby – Auntie Maggie's Remedy lyrics

Now there's all sorts of medicines that you can buy
No matter what ailment youve got
But I know a special one you ought to try
Youll find it's the best of the lot
Its my Auntie Maggies home made remedy, it's guaranteed never to fail
That's the stuff that will do the trick
Its sold at every chemist for "one and a kick".
Now if youve got lumbago, rheumatics or gout, or a pain in your Robert E. Lee
Don't kick up a shindy, you'll never get windy with Auntie Maggies Remedy
If you set your alarm clock for eight in the morning
Youre bound to wake up I'll agree
But I'll bet you by heaven, you'll wake up at seven
With my Auntie Maggies Remedy
In a young ladys bedroom I went by mistake
My intentions were honest you see
She shouted with laughter, "I know what you're after
Its my Auntie Maggies Remedy. "
Oh my Auntie Maggies home made remedy, it's guaranteed never to fail
That's the stuff that will do the trick
Its sold at every chemist for "one and a kick".
Now if youve got lumbago, rheumatics or gout, or a pain in your Robert E. Lee
Don't kick up a shindy, you'll never get windy with Auntie Maggies Remedy
Now when the baby starts crying, there's always a reason
And if you inspect him you'll see,
The poor little chappy has covered his nappy
With Auntie Maggies Remedy
Now I went to a doctor, I wasn't too well
And he made me lie on a settee
He said "there's trouble brewing, youve been overdoing
Your Auntie Maggies Remedy. "
Now I know a girl who was putting on weight,
In a spot where it just shouldn't be
So I said to Nellie, "Now you rub your ankle, with Auntie Maggies Remedy."
Additional Verse
Now one day at the races, the hors that I backed
Could have won it was easy to see
But the trai

    All about sex. Formby was clever at hiding the real meaning of his lyrics. It was like a game of cat and mouse between him and the censors at the BBC and he loved it. It wouldn't surprise me if one and a kick (1/6d) was the price of a pack of condoms in those days.
