Doctor Do-Little by Eva Buchholz

Why little? Belittle? Do little?
Do little harm!
I’m wishing for a doctor who does little
Little enough
Enough little little
But doctor, please
Do little harm
I’m on my knees
Just LISTEN a little
But do little harm to me, doctor
That would be grand
Do little harm to me
Do little harm
