Doctor Lyrics

Doctor can you help me please
I'm laying on the floor
I need a glass of something
Like you gave me once before
I'll send my little messenger
He'll bring the money to you
He'll slowly make his way back home
There'll be no horror show today my friends
And me well be up and get away
If I fill your every need
You won't feel so empty
In my web I'll bet your life
You're dead before you're thirty
Doctor can you help me please
I trust you like my mum
I know that you won't stop me turning
All the whole world on
You know that I'll always come to you
When everything goes wrong
You pick me up, don't let me go down
To the horror show today my friend
And me well be up and get away

  • This song was inspired by someone Martin Turner and his brother Glen knew from Torquay, where they grew up. According to bass player and vocalist Martin Turner in the band's official biography: "The first time I saw her she really looked like a witch". She was a heroin addict and "used to send someone round to the doctor to plead for an extra prescription because she was lying on the floor with withdrawal symptoms" - which wasn't true. When she got the drug she used to share it with her junkie friends.
  • In October 2008, he expanded on this in his on-line question and answer forum:
    "Doctor", he said, "was from an idea I had back in the 60s before WA. Musically a bit Who-ish again. The lyric was about my brothers girlfriend circa 67/68 whom I have to confess to having spent a crazy night or two with. She was a state registered heroin addict being treated with Methedrine or Methadone as it its called now. Beautiful girl, a successful model at only 16, but boy was she heavy duty. Had a bunch of young lads staying in her flat all of whom had run away from home, Mark Emery (Hobbit) would remember her. She blazed a trail and made it to her 30s but has been gone a long time now. Thanks for the song babe."
