The Lyrics

Had to go
to the doctor
'cause it hurts
when I do this.
Doctor said
"So, don't do that!"
Sense of humor
quite amiss.
He asked, "Have you
had this before?"
I said, "Yes, Doc"
through my pain.
And he arched
both his eyebrows
said, "Well, you've... got it again!"

Running gag
not very funny
with a groan big as the sky.
Running gag
not very funny
with a joke that just won't die!

Saw a guy
with a briefcase.
"Where you going
you old sport?"
With a gleam
in his eye, he said,
"I'm taking my
case to court!"
Next day, said he
holding ladder,
"Goin' to higher court, it's true."
Later that day
with just a hanger
he said, "Mike... I lost the suit!"

Running gag
not very funny
with a groan big as the sky.
Running gag
not very funny
with a joke that just won't die!

Running gags
you shouldn't oughter
ever ever
do the same.
Jokes as old
as Uncle Miltie.
through the Berle-ing
scream I came.
Back to doctor
I was going.
Gags made me feel
a little off.
"Cough," he asked me.
Three or four times.
"How long have... you had that cough?"

Running gag
not very funny
with a groan big as the sky.
Running gag
not very funny
with a joke that just won't die!

Good job on a song that was in the cobwebs of my head somewhere. It has been awhile since I heard or thought about Running Bear.
