Timo_Tuokkola Lyr Req: Cod Liver Oil (30) RE: Lyr Req: Cod Liver Oil 04 Sep 08


I'm a young married man and I'm tired of life
Ten years I've been wed to a pale sickly wife
She's nothing to do only sit there and cry
Praying and praying to God she would die

A friend of my own came to see me one day
He told me my wife, she was pining away
He afterwards told me that she would get strong
If I'd get a bottle from dear doctor John

Chorus:
Oh doctor, oh doctor, oh dear doctor John
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I''m afraid of my life I'll go down in the soil
If my wife don't stop drinking your cod liver oil

I bought her a bottle well just for to try
and the way that she drank it you'd think she might die
I bought her another, it vanished the same
And then she got cod liver oil on the brain

I bought her another, she drank it no doubt
And then she began to get terrible stout
And when she got stout well of course she got strong
And I became jealous of dear doctor John

Chorus:
Oh doctor, oh doctor, oh dear doctor John
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I''m afraid of my life I'll go down in the soil
If my wife don't stop drinking your cod liver oil

My house it resembles a great doctor's shop
It's covered in bottles from bottom to top
When early in the morning the kettle dors boil
You would swear it was singing of cod liver oil

Chorus:
Oh doctor, oh doctor, oh dear doctor John
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I''m afraid of my life I'll go down in the soil
If my wife don't stop drinking your cod liver oil

So all you young fellows where'er you may be
I hope you will heed this fair warning from me
From sickly women I pray you recoil
Or you'll find yourself swimming in cod liver oil

Chorus:
Oh doctor, oh doctor, oh dear doctor John
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I''m afraid of my life I'll go down in the soil
If my wife don't stop drinking your cod liver oil
