lyrics

John:
Listen folks, I've got a brand new product out on the market today so lend and ear

A tonic made from blessed thistle, I sell elixirs you see
Cloves of richness, rub them on you, you'll be the only one not on your knees
Consume these berries for a fair price Miss, though they might make you sneeze
You'll be welcomed with quite famed inditement
Come on ladies let's show them please.

Temptresses and John:
Tonic for fervor, tonic for wealth, tonic for ailment, tonic thyself
Tonic for prosper, tonic for truth, tonic for wise men, tonic for you

John:
Flask of fortune, drink a drop sir and you'll never tire
I've got grogs and leaves and fruits and things that'll make you feel like a real surpriser
Wild flavors please your palette, doesn't cost much for health
(Here) Drink this bottle of this certified brandy, bathe in the oils of God himself

Smoke and John (from different perspectives):
Yes, you'll dance with fortune
With your right hand, drink it up
Pleasure, for just an ounce of your treasure
Come ladies, fill them up, fill them up!

Temptresses/John/Crowd:
Tonic for fervor, tonic for wealth, tonic for ailment, tonic thyself
Tonic for prosper, tonic for truth, tonic for wise men
