Just a Spoonful of Sugar


Bowl of SugarIcky Medicine
In ev'ry job that must be done
There is an element of fun.
You find the fun and snap!
The job's a game.
And ev'ry task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake,
A lark, a spree,
It's very clear to see-

Icky MedicineBowl of Sugar
That a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
The medicine go down, medicine go down.
Just a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
In a most delightful way!
A robin feathering his nest
Has very little time to rest,
While gathering his bits of twine and twig.
Though quite intent in his pursuit,
He has a merry tune to toot;
He knows a song will move the job along-
Icky MedicineBowl of Sugar
For a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
The medicine go down, medicine go down.
Just a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
In a most delightful way!
The honeybees that fetch the nectar from
The flowers to the comb
Never tire of ev'ry buzzing to and fro,
Because they take a little nip
From every flower that they sip
And hence they find their task is not a grind-
Icky MedicineBowl of Sugar
For a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
The medicine go down, medicine go down.
Just a spoonful of sugar
Helps the medicine go down,
In a most delightful way!
