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
Saying I wish to the lord that I only could die.

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor De'Jung
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 drinking your cod liver oil.

Till a friend of me own came to see me one day
And he told me my wife was just pining away
But he afterwards told me that she would get strong
If I buy her a bottle from Dr De'Jung.

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor De'Jung
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 drinking your cod liver oil.

So I bought her a bottle, t'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
Till I owned she's got cod liver oil on the brain.

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor De'John
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 drinking your cod liver oil.

Me house it resembles a big doctor's shop
With bottles and bottles from bottom to top
And when in the morning the kettle do boil
You'd swear it was singing out cod liver oil.

Oh doctor, dear doctor, oh doctor De'John
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 drinking your cod liver oil.
