Words and Music by J. P. Skelly,

We all have troubles, more or less, that makes us ill at ease,
But now of worry I've excess, though I'm not hard to please.
If to my friends I should complain of fortune's cruel play,
They'll at me stare, and with an air mysterious will say:

You'll be all right when the doctor sees you,
You'll be all right when the doctor sees you,
Don't you worry now, old man, get along the best you can,
You'll be all right when the doctor sees you.

Now what they mean I'd like to know; I have no glaring ills;
The doctors all I would forego, likewise their pills and bills,
Yet if I say the day is cold or that we'll soon have rain.
With anger I can scarcely hold I hear those words again:- Chorus.

While in a crowded car one day a woman raised a cry:
Some one had snatched her purse away, on me she had her eye.
A big policeman took me in tho' I in rage rebelled;
He gave my arm a tighter pin while in my ear he yelled: - Chorus.

I started on a journey long and made the greatest haste,
But things delighted to go wrong and precious moments waste;
I readied the station just in time to see the train depart,
'Twas then I heard those words absurd that nearly broke my heart;- Chorus.

I thought among the Wall street men I'd like to speculate,
I walked into the lion's den and there I met my fate;
My fortune soon away was blown, none knew the reason why,
I asked them through the telephone and th was their reply - Chorus.
