Lyrics

Her Elixir
©2012 jeff rauschl (words and music)

Mama needs some her elixir
and it'll fix her
and set her right right right
I recommend you stay away from her
until it gets here
later tonight.

Mama wasn't one for drinking
she called the G-Men 'bout papa's still
And she wouldn't call the bondsman
to get papa out of county jail

She said let this be a lesson
if you go messin'
well there 'll be no doubt
Cause I'm the one brought you in this world
and I just as easy 'll take you out.

Well after that was a struggle
a single mother
raising up three kids
Night and day she worked through back aches
her body twisted by the rheumatis

Then to town came a doctor
in a Sunday suit with a broad mustache
Givin' freely of the tonic he had concocted
no need for cash

He said, "I'd like to share with you
the formula, but it's a secret.
I hope you understand.

There's some extract from leaves
from Columbia and little flowers
grown in Thailand.

Well it's a magical solution
taken orally three times a day.
And if its got you feeling better right now
then we can work out a plan
for you to pay"

For a while things got better
mom would get up and smile each day
But if the medicine bottle was running out
we knew we better find a place to hide away.

Because
Mama needs some her elixir
and it'll fix her
and set her right.
I recommend you stay away from her
until it gets here
later tonight.

Better call the doctor
for more Elixir
right away
Cause mama needs it in a hurry
or there will be hell to pay

Oh.... her Elixir
There's nothing quicker
to set her right
I can't see much difference
from papas liquor...
oh from her elixir
oh mamas elixir...
she needs it!
Mama needs her elixir

Cute and quirky. Nice song.

Good groove, steady and soulfull.
