W:She does nothing all day only sits down and sigh W:"Oh I wish to the Lord that I only could die!" W: W:Then a friend of my own came to see me one day, W:and he said that my wife was just pining away, W:but he afterwards told me that she would get strong, W:if I'd buy her a bottle from Doctor De Jongh. W: W:Chorus: W:Oh doctor, oh doctor, oh doctor De Jongh, W:your cod liver oil is so pure and so strong. W:I'm afraid of my life I'll go down in the soil, W:if my wife don't stop drinking your cod liver oil. W: W:So I bought her a bottle - 'twas just for to try, W:And the way that she scoffed it, you would swear she was dry. W:I bought her another, and it went just the same, W:'til I own she's got cod liver oil on her brain! W: W:Chorus W: W:Now my house it resembles a big doctor's shop, W:with bottles and bottles from bottom to top, W:and when in the morning the kettle does boil, W:you'd swear it was singing out "Cod liver oil"! W: W:Chorus
