  Her: Oh doctor, I'm in trouble.
  Him: Well, goodness gracious me.
  Her: For every time a certain man
  Is standing next to me.
  Him: Mmm?
  Her: A flush comes to my face
  And my pulse begins to race,
  It goes boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
  Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom,
  Him: Oh!
  Her: Boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
  Him: Well, goodness gracious me. 
   Him: How often does this happen?
  When did the trouble start?
  You see, my stethoscope is bobbing
  To the throbbing of your heart.
  Her: What kind of man is he
  To create this allergy?
  It goes boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
  Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom,
  Him: Oh!
  Her: Boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
  Him: Well, goodness gracious me. 
   Him: From New Delhi to Darjeeling
  I have done my share of healing,
  And I've never yet been beaten or outboxed,
  I remember that with one jab
  Of my needle in the Punjab
  How I cleared up beriberi
  And the dreaded dysentery,
  But your complaint has got me really foxed.
  Her: Oh. 
   Her: Oh doctor, touch my fingers.
  Him: Well, goodness gracious me.
  Her: You may be very clever
  But however, can't you see,
  My heart beats much too much
  At a certain tender touch,
  It goes boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
  Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom,
  Him: I like it!
  Her: Boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
  Him: Well, goodness gracious me. 
   Him: Can I see your tongue?
  Her: Aaah.
  Him: Nothing the matter with it, put it away please.
  Her: Maybe it's my back.
  Him: Maybe it is.
  Her: Shall I lie down?
  Him: Yes.
  Her: Ahhh... 
   Him: My initial diagnosis
  Rules out measles and thrombosis,
  Sleeping sickness and, as far as I can tell,
  Influenza, inflammation,
  Whooping cough and night starvation,
  And you'll be so glad to hear
  That both your eyeballs are so clear
  That I can positively swear that you are well,
  Ja-ja, ja-ja-ja-ja. 
   Her: Put two and two together,
  Him: Four,
  Her: If you have eyes to see,
  The face that makes my pulses race
  Is right in front of me.
  Him: Oh, there is nothing I can do
  For my heart is jumping too.
  Both: Oh, we go boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
  Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom
  Boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom,
  Her: Goodness gracious,
  Him: How audacious!
  Her: Goodness gracious,
  Him: How flirtatious!
  Her: Goodness gracious,
  Him: It is me.
  Her: It is you?
  Him: Ah, I'm sorry, it is us.
  Both: Ahhh!
