Verse:
Ev -'ry -bod -y gets the blues now and then, and don't know what to do.
I've had it hap -pen man -y man -y times to me, and so have you.
But those days have gone and past, I found out what to do at last,
When I feel all in, down and out, you will hear me shout:
 
Chorus:
Oh, hel -lo cen -tral, give me Doc -tor Jazz,
He's got just what I need, I'll say he has.
When the world goes wrong, and I got the blues,
He's the man who makes me get out both my danc -ing shoes.
The more I get, the more I want, it seems.
I page old Doc -tor Jazz in all my dreams,
When I'm trou -ble bound and mixed, He's the guy that gets me fixed,
Hel -lo cen -tral give me Doc -tor Jazz.
