lyrics

Doctor it looks bad, you're as pale as a sheet
And trying hard to put me in a bed
You want to bargain with it; it wants me dead
I just want to stay on my feet

If it's consumption
It'll never stop
I'll fight the fever 'til I drop

Doctor I protest I am very much alive
Dead men don't cough this loud
It'd be a sensible gurney if only I wasn't
So stuck up, stubborn and proud

I was never good
At doing what I'm told
I'll fight the fever til I'm cold

I'm still here...

Doctor I forbid you to say another word
Or stick me with your pins anymore
Just keep your hands disinfected, keep your stethoscope connected
And kindly show me the door

No use for needles
No use for beds
I'll fight the fever 'til I'm dead

I'm still here...
