 Doctor, there's something wrong with me
  |                 |               |Eb       |
My health is not all that it used to be   
  |Fb             |              |Gb              |
My heart is out of beat, I've got chilblains on my feet
  |Eb                |               |Fb  |  |Gb   |  |Abm  |   |  |  |
My eyesight's getting dimmer, I can't see

Doctor thanks for seeing me today, I'm glad,
I've got every 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

|Ab             |               |Db     |  
 Doctor, doctor, doctor, make me well
    |Gb             |            |Cb     |
I've not got long to go now I can tell
|Ab             |               |Db   z\
 Doctor, doctor, doctor, make me well
    |Gb             |Fb      |Gb     |Fb
I've not got long to go I can tell
    |Gb             |Fb      |Gb  |Fb    Gb|Abm    |    |    |    |
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 foot four

I've been getting shivers lately, is it flu?
And though the bug is going round, what can I do?
And it's about to pick on me, I've still got the other three
Do you think if I caught smallpox I'd get through?

[chorus]
Doctor, doctor, doctor, make me well
I've not got long to go 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

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