Aretha Franklin – Doctor's Orders lyrics

Hoppin', hoppin' till I'm energized (Oh yeah)
'Cause I got something on my mind (What is it, baby)
So I-I said to my baby, leave the job early (Mmm, hmm)
'Cause I got a thing for you that's killin' me (I like this stuff)

You really know just how to thrill me {Uh-huh}
You lay those pretty little words on me (Uh-huh)
So I'll be the doctor, let me work on you {I'm ready}
And then I'll prescribe the things we gonna do {Hmm, okay}, uh-huh

The doctor's order said "Get some love" (Oh, yeah)
Said you've been goin' without it long enough, long enough
So here I am, boy, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of (Ooh, boy, my boy)

I love it when you get sentimental (Oh, baby)
You can't be a no way but sweet and gentle
You know what to do when the world falls in
You give me the sweetest kind of medicine, I'm wit' you, wit' you, baby

One kiss {Hmm} from you would be (Be)
The world sweetest kind of surgery (Uh-huh)
So you'll be the doctor, boy, won't you be (Be)
And write up a love prescription just for me
{I'm hangin' wit' you, baby} Hang with me, baby

I spoke to the main man at that love pharmacy {Yeah}
So let me just tell you, uh-huh, exactly what you need
I'll show you the directions (Ooh) but be sure you'll read the warnin' (Say what)
Try two kisses {Okay} and then call me in the mornin'

Doctor's order said to "Get some love" {Yeah, get it, get it}
Said you've been goin' without it long enough {Long enough}, oh, oh
So here I am, girl, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of {Ooh, girl, my girl}

Fever, fever has got a hold on you
I see a love fever {Uh-huh} and you can hardly make it
I got fever, fever {Ooh} (Uh-huh) about a hundred zero two
A love fever, fever and you don't think you can take it, help me

Oh {Oh... Oh... Oh...}
It's hot {Say oh... Oh... Oh}
Oh, I'm burnin' with the fever {Oh... Oh... Oh...}
The doctor said (What did he say)
To get some love (And)
And I'm so, I'm so, I'm so in love with you, baby
You know you better be listenin' to what the doctor said

I feel better now, I don't know how
We did it, but we did
Will you keep huggin' me and workin' in me
And don't you ever quit it (Ooh, boy)
So get out of bed the doctor said
'Cause you're the cure I need
For anything that's wrong with me
I'm hangin' wit' you baby (Hang with me, baby)

The doctor's order said "Get some love" (Hang with me, baby)
Said you've been goin' without it long enough (Stay right in, hang with me, baby)
Here I am, boy, to hook you up (Oh, yeah)
That's exactly what I'm dreamin' of {Hey, hey}

You need to hear what the doctor said love and get you some love (Ooh)
Get to my love, get to my love, got to be love (Got to be love)
So here I am, boy {To hook you up} to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of, hey, hey (Hang with me, baby)

The doctor's order said "Get some love" (When do you want it)
Says you've been goin' without it long enough, long enough (Oh, how do you want it)
Here I am to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of
