The Lyrics

Long time ago I heard this Asian plant was good for the memory. Just can't remember who told me.
Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo biloba (loba)

My thoughts are random, and my mem’ry short
And now I can’t deny that I need support
I don’t like to grovel, here’s a tenner dear,
Will you help me out, cause I need to get some Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo biloba

Its nootropic goodness for nootropic fans
Just an Asian plant that helps you understand
A drug assisting with the mind’s details
Take away the fog with a healthy dose of Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo biloba (loba)

I’ve been taking doses for a year or two
And I swear, without it, I would come unglued
Don’t you go believing all those patient trials
Science so unsound to the properties of Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo biloba

I don’t mean to frighten, so I’ll be polite,
Do they call you Michael? Is it simply Mike?
See I can’t remember, things aren’t really clear,
So for goodness sake, can you tell me what’s this Ginkgo biloba?
Ginkgo biloba?

Ginkgo biloba?
Ginkgo biloba? (loba)

Great! Amazing how many people pronounce this wrong (I've heard them say "bilobo".) Anyway, great parody, as I recall

Good write. I never could get my tongue around the name, so I call it "Rocky Balboa". ;D

Thanks all. I wasn't sure anyone would get the joke at the end, so I appreciate the v/c's!
