lyrics

Oh Doctor

© Faymusic Publishing Written and composed by Mike Silver

I arrived late for the party that night
Got lost on the way something like that
When I finally got in just didn’t feel right
There weren’t too many faces I knew
The usual suspects I’d heard of the names
Been aware of the hype in the magazines
Not many of them could have been said to befriends
Tho’ there were a few and you

You waded in with your elbows out
That big old cheesy grin on your mouth
Throwing your head back and laughing too loud
Digging other guys in the ribs
Weaving your way in and out of the crowd
Trying to get close to the people with clout
Secretly wondering what its all about
And sneaking a peak at the waitresses legs

Oh doctor I’m in a terrible fix
But I really don’t need you to come tome quick
Could you be the reason that I’m getting sick
Perhaps you should keep away
Oh doctor I’m feeling much worse
I think I’d be much better off with a nurse
Your bedside manner’s clearly over rehearsed
You always have too much to say
Oh doctor its time to call it a day

Whispering in the ear of a household name
Hoping that they’ll let you back in the game
They’ll only make sure that you miss the last train
And you won’t get a free ride home
Sup with the devil you get little to eat
You’ll be lucky if you even get offered a seat
You’d like to feel strong but you’ll only feel weak
You’ll be talking about getting back up on your feet
You’ll win a demon like this for every day of the week
Till you find yourself right back out on the street
And discover your cover is blown

Oh doctor I’m feeling much worse
I think I’d be much better off with a nurse
Your bedside manner’s clearly over rehearsed
You always have too much to say
Oh doctor its time to call it a day
