"Jeremiah Peabody's Poly Unsaturated Quick Dissolving Fast Acting Pleasant

if you include
spacing and punctuation. The song hit #35 on the Billboard Top 40 in 1961,
providing Stevens with his first commercial hit. Ray Stevens even has his
own YouTube channel, where he has a cute little animation of himself
performing the song:
