I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Son you look older than me and I'm 71
You're falling apart and not living right

I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Loud, you've got to stop hanging out
With that olden crowd
Living's a battle and you're losing the fight

I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Boy, your body is a temple, it's not a toy
Fill up this here paper cup and give it to the nurse
Don't spill it now

I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Friend this should be the middle
But it could be the end
You better get better or else you're gonna get worse

Oh, I went to the doctor. Oh, I went to the doctor

I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Sir we got back the x-ray everything's a blur
It's all positive that's what every single test shows

I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Kid it was something that you ate or drank
It's something that you did
And it's all in your head and
It's spreadin on down to your toes
Let's spread it around a little bit now

Oh, I went to the doctor. Everybody does
Oh, I went to the doctor

I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Please get on down to the drug store
And pick up some of these
After that get on home and get into your bed

I went to the doctor and the doctor said
Shucks that's just about all, you owe me 300 bucks
And you can call me in the morning
That is if you're not dead

2, 3, 4... Oh, I went to the doctor.
I was checkin up on you. Oh, I went to the doctor
