1. Go hang yourself, you old M.D.!
You shall not sneer at me.
Pick up your hat and stethoscope,
GO wash your mouth with laundry soap:
contemplate a joy exquisite
I’m not paying you for your visit.
I did not call you to be told
My malady is a common cold.
2. By pounding brow and swollen lip;
By fever’s hot and scaly grip;
By those two red redundant eyes
That weep like woeful April skies;
By racking snuffle, snort, and sniff;
By handkerchief after handkerchief;
This cold you wave away as naught
Is the damnedest cold man ever caught!
3. Bacilli swarm within my portals
Such as were ne’er conceived by mortals,

In some Olympic laboratory;

With feet of fire and heads of ice
Who never interrupt for slumber
Their stamping elephantine rumba.
