Oh doctor, I'm terrified out of my wits.
Poor Nancy, my daughter, is fallen into fits,
but you are come, are come just in the nick,
dear doctor, you're come just in the nick.

The first step in cases like this,
to be sure is breathing a vein.
I'll engage for the cure if you'll
let me but give her a prick.

Dear doctor make haste,
dear doctor there's no time to be lost.
To cure her we'll spare neither trouble no cost,
but whatever you do, do it quick.
