C								                                  C7
I went to the doctor and the doctor said, "Son
You look older than me and I'm seventy-one.
C                                   G
You're fallin apart, and not living right."
C                              C7
I went to the doctor and the doctor said, " Loud,
You gotta stop hanging round with that old in crowd,
C                   G                    C
Living's a battle, and you're losing the fight."

I went to the doctor and the doctor said, "Boy,
your body's temple, its 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'd better get better, or else you gonna get worse."

Am     F                          C
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh , I went to the doctor. 
Am   F                         C     G
Oh-oh-oh-oh-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!
Its all positive, thats what every single test shows."
I went to the doctor and the doctor said, "Kid,
It was something that you ate or drank or something that you did.
And its spreading on down to your toes."

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh , I went to the doctor.    (Everybody does!)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh , I went to the doctor.

I went to the doctor and the doctor said, "Please
get on down to the drugstore and pick up some of these.
Than get on home, get into your bed."
I went to the doctor and the doctor said, "Shucks,
Thats about all, you owe me three hundred bucks.
And call me in the morning, thats if you're not dead."

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh , I went to the doctor.   (Just checkin up on ya)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh , I went to the doctor.
