Ray Stevens - Jeremiah Peabody's Polyunsaturated Quick-Dissolving Fast-Acting Pleasant-Tasting Green And Purple Pills Lyrics




Do you have that rundown feelin', does your head go reelin'?
Are you nervous, jumpy or on the edge?
Is it neuritis, neuralgia, a head cold or stress?
Or maybe it's your sinus drainage.

Do you have tired blood, beriberi?
Or maybe you're a little overweight?
You better make some correction in all this infection,
Just send in one dollar ninety eight.

Get ridda that runny nose (sniiiff), that naggin' cough (cough), that sneeze (achoo),
That wheeze (gasp) and other injuries.
Take the wonder drug that cures all your ills,
Take Jeremiah Peabody's polyunsaturated, quick dissolvin', fast actin',
Pleasant tastin' green and purple pills.

Oh yeah!

Well, it won't upset your stomach, it's good for arthiritis,
It soothes all your aches and pains.
Get ridda those hammers in your head,
Don't be a hyprakrondriac,
Start feelin' better again.

Clear up that fungus amongus;
It's good for every ailment, includin' water on the knee.
And it's guaranteed to be just what you need
For quick, fast, speedy relief.

Get ridda that runny nose (sniiiff), that naggin' cough (cough), that sneeze (achoo),
That wheeze (gasp) and other injuries.
Take Jeremiah Peabody's polyunsaturated, quick dissolvin', fast actin',
Pleasant tastin' green and purple pills.

Oh, yeah! Little green and purple pills,
Oh, yeah, little green and purple pills...

  4. jobucktu

    This is actually my all time favorite. Thanks Ray for keeping me well entertained through out my life.

  5. 1985OldSkool

    Wow! Thirteen words. Now, that's what I call the longest song title ever (not counting medley hits).

  6. Sunny Brooks

    I need me some

  7. ablestmage

    I've got most of Ray's collection on vinyl and used to listen to them as a kid, and I must honestly say, I much prefer those particular recordings that these re-release versions. He sang in a much funnier way, such as saying, "that cures aww yo ills" instead of enunciating "that cures all your ills" and seemed quite a bit sillier. How about releasing versions of the old recordings, without any animation so our own imaginations can do the work, like back in the day?

  8. Kathleen Cook

    It brought more than a smile out of me. It made me laugh. His videos are terrific.

  9. CrazyCat Lady

    Thank you for the high quality memory! I had this on 8-Track in my 58 Chevy Delray.

  10. CheckMate657879

    Man! This song was the lick! Thanks for posting a clear, digitally-mastered version.
