Some other versions of "Close the Door"


Close the Door, close the door, don’t let the doctor come in
Close the door and lock it tight
I’ve got no money for the doctor tonight
Three weeks I spent in the hospital
It left me with a stack of bills sky high
I’ll never be able to pay them I know
I wish I would have stayed there and died
La dee da dee da, la dee da dee dum…
Tell me why, please, tell me why
We must pay for the things that we need
While a doctor gets richer off me each day
I barely have the money to eat
So I’ll never go to the doctor no more
No matter how sick I get
No doctor will ever get my dough
‘Cause I work too damn hard for that
La dee da dee da, la dee da dee dum…
Oh, the doctor he sticks his needle in
He says just to take some blood
What he claimed it was not red but green
And boys he took all that he could
1st verse
La dee da dee da, la dee da dee dum…
