Song Lyric Sunday: Doctor/Health/Medicine – ‘Doctor! Doctor!’

First of all, best wishes to Helen while she takes a break from hosting Song Lyric Sunday and thanks to Jim at newepicauthor for stepping into the breach. Definitely the right man for the job.

This is the first song that came to my mind when I saw this week’s prompt. I note that other participants have posted songs titled ‘Doctor Doctor’ but I haven’t seen this one, which was a hit in the UK in 1984 for the Thompson Twins. Back then, I spent a lot of time on British Airways’ 747s between London and the USA (one of the ‘perks’ of working for the Thundering Herd), and this always seemed to be on the in-flight entertainment playlist. Catchy little number, with a great hook.

I saw you there
Just standing there
And I thought I was only dreaming, yeah

I kissed you then
Then once again
You said you would come and dance with me

Dance with me
Across the sea
And we can feel the motion of a thousand dreams

Doctor! Doctor!
Can’t you see I’m burning, burning
Oh Doctor! Doctor!
Is this love I’m feeling?

Ships at night
Give such delight
But we all leave before the morning light

Please don’t go
No, please don’t go
Cause I don’t want to stay here on my own

Oh Doctor! Doctor!
Can’t you see I’m burning, burning
Oh Doctor! Doctor!
Is this love I’m feeling?

Doctor! Doctor!
Can’t you see I’m burning, burning
Oh Doctor! Doctor!
Is this love I’m feeling?

Fever breathe your love on me
Take away my name
Fever lay your hands on me
Never be the same

Oh Doctor! Doctor!
Can’t you see I’m burning, burning
Oh Doctor! Doctor!
Is this love I’m feeling?

Doctor! Doctor!
Can’t you see I’m burning, burning
Oh Doctor! Doctor!
Is this love I’m feeling?

Come with me
And make believe
We can travel to eternity

  1. Thanks Deadhead this choice works well. It was supposed to be linked to my Guest Host post, not my Get Well Helen, but this was a confusing week, so I will put the pingback there for you.
