Donna's video below is actually based on a folk song included on Oscar Brand's compilation Bawdy Songs Goes to College. It sings the praises of
Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, a magical elixir for whatever ills that plagued you. You can still buy the stuff today, albeit paregoric (or whatever the magical ingredient was) -free. The song is "Four For Three", which you can hear here. Hear, hear!
