Fairport Convention – Sickness And Diseases lyrics
I do hate to see a rover crippled in the stones
Now he's one step nearer to the ground
And I do hate to see a hawker broken in the bones
[Chorus:]
Sickness and diseases pull you down, pull you down
Sickness and diseases pull you down
Everybody's got the sickness, everybody's down
Running to the doctor with a pound
"Doctor, doctor, do you have a needle big enough for me?"
[Chorus:]
[Chorus:]
My friend Billy, well he looks so ill, his face is white as milk
Everybody runs for miles when he's in town
He's got every known disease and some without a name
[Chorus:]
If you want to live to be a poor man or a prince
Pay good attention when evil times abound
Always listen to what your mother says and stay in bed at night
[Chorus:]
[Chorus:]
