Softly and Soothingly sweet on my skin,
Sliding so smoothly it’s almost a sin.
Scratches and grazes, sting, sore and spot
Sing the solution that Savlon has got.
Don’t tarry with calamine, pink and effete,
its action wears off in a minute, my sweet,
And iodine stings just as bad as a cut,
And stains you all yellow! Oh use nothing but.
The purest of ointment, so sweet and so white,
if you’re visited by a bed bug in the night.
Or if you should slam your poor hand in a door,
Just shout for the Savlon to over it pour;
Next day you’ll be glad when your injuries show
Not a sign of a twinge or a nasty red glow.
So whatever they say, and wherever you go,
it’s best to take ten tubes of Savlon you know.
