The Doctors they are gentlemen.

None better could be found.

For they all do their very best.

To keep you above ground.

12

Of course we get the best

     of food.

That ever men could have

one bottle of Beer with dinner

     (perhaps)

So you see thats not so bad

13

The Visitors to this hospital.

Are few + far between.

But then we do not grumble.

I"ll tell you what we mean.


 Right page: 

14

For the gifts they bring are costly.

But they do not care for that.

So long as they can help you.

To get well + grow fat.

15

and if they cannot come

     theirselves

Their servants they do send

So I know they do their utmost

To keep us on the mend

16

And when this war is over

There"ll be many a man that

     should

Bless Hosp Staff + Visitors

For the treatment + gifts so good
