The I.P.D.

  • (Sue Edmonds / Lian Tanner)
  • It's the I P D, the I P D
    It may not feel too good to you but it's not hurting me
    So every time the pain begins to fill your eyes with tears
    Remember I put up with it for years

    I'll sing you all a song about a wondrous new device
    The nation's latest contraceptive plan
    That funny little object they call the I U D
    Has recently been changed to fit a man

    They tested it on whales and they tried it out on mice
    They used it in the poorer parts of town
    It's the cleverest invention since the automatic lift
    Guaranteed to never let you down

    It was proven to be safe for the average human male
    Though testing showed some minor side-effects
    There were two died from infection and six were sterilised
    But only ten per cent were too depressed - from

    But you know, some people are never satisfied
    So scientists are working once again
    They've got something even better than the good old I P D
    It's called the morning-after pill for men

    Final chorus:
    It's the pill, it's better than the I P D
    It may not be too safe but we'll just have to wait and see
    So put away your worries and put away your fears
    And remember I put up with it for years

    (as sung by Judy Small)
