Check-up, check-up, ev'rybody needs a check-up now and then;
Big kids, little kids, women and the men;
Ev'rybody needs a check-up now and then;
Go to the doctor some bright sunny day
Ask the doctor, "Hey Doc, am I O.K.?"
Well the doctor will check you from head to toe;
If nothing is wrong, it's nice to know,
If something needs fixing the doctor can tell
What to do, where to go, to make you well,
With a check-up, check-up, ev'rybody needs a check-up now and then.
Are your ears as good as they should be?
Do your eyes see everything they should see?
Have you got the measles or a shakey knee?
Let's go with someone from the family
Check-up, check-up, ev'rybody needs a check-up now and then
Ev'rybody needs a check-up now and then!
