Cod Liver Oil
Traditional
I'm a young married man and I'm tired of me life
For lately I married an ailing young wife
She does nothing all day only sits down and sigh
Sayin: "I wish to the lord that I only could die"

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor de Jongh
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I'm afraid of me life, I'll go down in the soil
If me wife don't stop drinkin' your cod liver oil

Til a friend of me own came to see me one day
And he told me me wife was just pining away
But he afterwards told me that she would get strong
If I'd buy her a bottle from doctor de Jongh

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor de Jongh
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I'm afraid of me life, I'll go down in the soil
If me wife don't stop drinkin' your cod liver oil

So I bought her a bottle it was just for to try
And the way that she scoffed it, you'd swear she was dry
I bought her another, it went just the same
Til I own she's got cod liver oil on the brain

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor de Jongh
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I'm afraid of me life, I'll go down in the soil
If me wife don't stop drinkin' your cod liver oil

My house it resembles a big doctor's shop
With bottles and bottles from bottom to top
And when in the morning the kettle's a-boil
You'd swear it was singin' out: Cod Liver Oil

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor de Jongh
Your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong
I'm afraid of me life, I'll go down in the soil
If me wife don't stop drinkin' your cod liver oil
