I[G] went to the Doctor, I[C] felt as good as dead.
He gave me a check up and [D]to me he said.
Your [G]body is knackered,
You’re [C]in an awful [Am]state.
Then he[A7] asked me which pieces I’d [Am]like to do[G]nate.
My[G] heart is in [Bm]Holland, my [C]lungs are in New[Am] York,
My [A7]liver’s in London, my [D]brain is in Bangkok.
They [C]tell me my [D]kidneys are[C] somewhere in Sidney,
There’s[G] bits of me [Am]working all [D]over the[G] world.
I got a nice letter from China yesterday
To tell me my bladder is workin’ away.
And Ivan the Russian, they said he’s doing fine.
He’s workin’ in the Kremlin with my intestine.
Now I’ve never travelled outside of Ireland,
I love this old place and I think it is grand.
But wherever you wander, though far away or near,
You’re certain to find parts of me waiting there.
