Mustard plant and lizard toes,

Snakes eyes and garlic,

Mix them well with a cockle shell.

Then drink this blasted tonic!

 

Call me after the next full-moon

If a breath is still within you.

If it doesn't take, for pity sake,

Then we'll try something new.

 

These remedies are hit and miss

Sense no-one's sure what ails you.

We've tried bat's ears and troll tears

In that swamp-water brew.

 

Yes, I'm trying to cure you

You ungrateful big buffoon.

Not all bodies change, or rearrange.

On the nights without a moon.

 

I suspect that you have Opposite-itus

But we won't know 'til you drink this Mix.

Then the next full moon, coming soon,

Will show us if we've found a fix.

 

Your case is such a trying one

For your diet is so atrocious

Don't eat so fast, make it last,

And stop acting all ferocious.
