Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
He has proved it for many miles around.
He done proved it!
He vaccinated Sister Hannah last Sunday morn;
When her husband came home, she had packed and gone.
Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!

Now, our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
What kind of man is that?
"Don't vaccinate me on my arm, I wash and iron," said Miss Brown.
Heh, heh!
"Where can I vaccinate you?" said the doctor with a frown.
She said, "Well, doctor, it's seldom I sit down."
Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!

Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
Yes, Lord!
He's some vaccinator, yes, he's a vaccinatin' hound;
When he sticks his needle into your skin,
You can tell the world it's too bad, Jim.
Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!

Now, our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
Tell the truth!
Don't none of you sisters turn our good doctor down!
He vaccinated Sister Lou and Sister So-and-so,
Every time they seen him, they wanted some more!
Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!

Now, our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
Yeah?
He's so easy he never makes a sound,
No, no, he don't!
He take his big needle, put it in his hand,
He knows how much each sister can stand.
Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!

Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
It looks like all the women just run him down.
Sure enough!
He told Sister Jenkin and Sister Mary Brown,
If you miss his vaccinatin', may not be nothing to be found.
Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!

Now, our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
Don't laugh at him, because he ain't no clown.
If you don't think his vaccinatin' is tight,
Just call 'round his office 'most any night;
Our family doctor is the best vaccinator in town!
