1960's, Doctor, Illness, Sick
Doctor, there’s something wrong with me.
My health is not all that it used to be.
My heart is out of beat,
I’ve got chilblains on my feet.
My eyesight’s getting dimmer,
I can’t see.

Doctor, thanks for seeing me today, I’m glad.
I’ve got ev’ry sickness there is to be had.
I had whooping cough last month,
And today I’ve got the mumps,
And tomorrow I’ll get chicken pox as well.

Doctor, doctor, doctor, make me well.
I’ve not got long to go now, I can tell.
Doctor, doctor, doctor, make me well.
I’ve not got long to go, I can tell.
I’ve not got long to go, I can tell.

Those pills I took had no effect at all.
Just the other day I had a nasty fall.
And I think I broke my jaw
When it hit the kitchen floor,
And I’m shrinking, last week I was five feet four.

I’ve been getting shivers lately. Is it flu?
Another bug is going ‘round. What can I do?
And it’s bound to pick on me,
I’ve still got the other three.
Do you think if I got smallpox I’d get through?


Do you think it’s time that I made out my will?
I’ll leave ev’rything to you to pay my bill.
Just how long is there to go?
Please tell me, I want to know.
But on second thought, don’t tell me.
I’m too ill.
