The Lyrics

PICTURE THIS: Ricky finds out about the Veeta-vita-vegimine caper. It backfires on Lucy (as usual) and he steals the recipe, bottles it as "Ricardo's Spirits" and builds an empire geared TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD! . . .
There is no Lucile Ball solution
To to the Ricardo revolution
The Rumba's in the constitution
There is no Fred Mertz evolution

Ricardo's Spirits, own the material world
Ricardo's Spirits, own the material world
Ricardo's Spirits, own the material world

So Ethel tries to speak
The Ricardos try to jail her
Then Lucy starts to weep

Crocidile tears, they just fail her

Ricardo's Spirits, own the material world
Ricardo's Spirits, own the material world
Ricardo's Spirits, own the material world

Babalu was just a lie
Selling tonic die or pay
Built Ricky's empire in the sky
And poor Lucy paved the way

Ricardo's Spirits, own the material world . . .
Stop by and visit me; we'll spin a yarn or two. PrimeTap Magazine: Ol' John Brown's Funny Pages
