A rough translation from the record.

GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME - Peter Sellers and Sohia Loren (Kretzmer/Lee)

(she) O Doctor, I'm in trouble
(he) Well, goodness gracious me.
(she) for every time a certain man
      is standing next to me.
(he) mmm?
(she) a flush comes to my face
      and my pulse begins to race
      it goes boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boom-de-boom.
(he) ohhh?
)she) boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
(he) Well, goodness gracious me.

(he) How often does this happen,
      when did the trouble start?
      You see, my stethoscope is bobbing
      to the throbbing of your heart.
(she) What kind of man is he
      to create this allergy?
      it goes boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boom-de-boom.
(he) ohhh?
)she) boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
(he) Well, goodness gracious me.

(he) From New Delhi to Darjeeling
      I have done my share of healing
      and I've never yet been beaten
      or outboxed(?)
      I remember that with one jab
      of my needle in the Punjab
      how I cleared up Berri Berri
      and the dreaded dysentary
      but your complaint has got me
      really poxed(?).

(she) Oh Doctor, touch my fingers
(he) well, goodness gracious me.
(she) you may be very clever
      but, however, can't you see.
      My heart beats much too much
      at a certain tender touch
      it goes boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boom-de-boom.
(he) ohhh?
(she) boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
(he) Well, goodness gracious me.

Spoken
(he) Can I see your tongue; nothing the matter with it; put it away, please.
(she) Maybe it's my back?
(he) Maybe it is.
(She) Shall I lie down?
(he) Ahhhh!

(he) My initial diagnosis
      rules out measles and thrombosis,
      sleeping sickness and as far
      as I can tell,
      influenza, inflammation
      whooping cough and night starvation
      and you'll be so glad to hear
      that both your eyeballs are so clear
      that I can positively swear
      that you are well.

(she) Put two and two together,
      if you have eyes to see,
      the face that makes my pulses race
      is right in front of me.
(he) Oh there's nothing I can do
      for my heart is jumping too
      it goes
(together) boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boom-de-boom.
      boom-boody-boom
      boody-boom-boody-boom
   
(she) goodness gracious
(he) how audacious
(she) goodness gracious
(he) how flirtatious
(she) goodness gracious
(he) it is me.
(she) It is you?
(he) ah sorry, it is I!
She) ahhhhh.
