The Doctor’s Office
While waiting in the doctor’s office,
as you look around,
people all are watching you,
at least that’s what I found.
I wonder what is wrong with them
and what they’re doing here;
Until I know what’s going on,
don’t want to go too near.
Although some people look quite well,
some others look real sick.
It makes you want to finish up
and get out really quick.
Some people have a real bad cold;
they cough and cough and choke.
