My girlfriend thinks that I'm a nutter,
My parents say that I'm an utter fool,
For wasting my time on this.

But I'm not chasing my imagination,
I just can't help avoid my fixation,
Cos I know that he really exists.

But if you look through time then you will find,
So many artifacts have been signed with clues,
All pointing his way.

And though he may have different faces,
I think it's him in all the cases,
The man is an enigma,
Who knows where he is today.

Just have a look at what I've found and see,
Am I going crazy or is he following me,
You can find his legacy sketched throughout,
Though the history books always tend to leave him out.

He's called the Doctor
But Doctor What?
I think he's a Martian though I know that that's a long shot

Doctor
But Doctor When?
I'll check back to prehistoric times and there he is again

Well that's the Doctor
But Doctor How?
He saves the planet all the time but never stops to bow

Oh mister Doctor
But Doctor Who?
And most importantly Doctor, how can I find you?

He takes danger with him everywhere he goes
So if he does show up then we'll know
That something's not right

But I just can't help but think that I
Would make a good companion by his side
I'm pretty bright, always polite, oh Doctor take me up tonight.

I know that I should get a grip
But I need to see inside his ship
And have him take me everywhere he gone.

Or at least I'd like to meet the guy
To shake his hand and say goodbye
And thank him for all he's done

You can't deny aliens must be real
Well is it that hard to believe that some might be revealed to look like us
Well I know it's just all speculation but I feel I must
Try to trust in what I feel

He's called the Doctor
But Doctor What?
I think he's a Martian though I know that that's a long shot

Doctor
But Doctor When?
I'll check back to prehistoric times and there he is again

Well that's the Doctor
But Doctor How?
He saves the planet all the time but never stops to bow

Oh mister Doctor
But Doctor Who?
And most importantly Doctor, how can I find you?

I know that I must seem like some kind of Neanderthal
While you' re a flying cosmic genius and know-it-all
I'm just an insect, there's nothing I can do.
How could I expect that would ever meet you Doctor!

But Doctor What?
I think he's a Martian though I know that that's a long shot

Doctor
But Doctor When?
I'll check back to prehistoric times and there he is again

Well that's the Doctor
But Doctor How?
He saves the planet all the time but never stops to bow

Oh mister Doctor
But Doctor Who?
And most importantly Doctor, how can I find you?

    It is obviously from the viewpoint if Elton Pope. He follows the Doctor everywhere, and realizes he did so much for the world, and wants to thank him. His girlfriend, Jackie Tyler, thinks he is crazy for carrying a picture of Rose. His "parents", or caretakers, as a child thought he was crazy. I say caretakers because his mum died, and his dad left insane. He, and LINDA, thought the Doctor was a martian and this was showed true by Victor Kennedy/Abzorbaloff. He also checked through all of space and time and saw the blue box there. Or it could be Clive Flinch, the man from Rose who also had a family who thought him as crazy. He also had a picture of the Doctor in early times.

    It is just such a good song about charlie wanting to find the doctor, just to meet him and say thank you for all he has done, although he would like to be his companion, he would be content to just meet him. I love you charlie!

    It is someone who wants to meet the doctor but feels that they may not be important enough to (it's amazing how much this describes my life! ) i hope that he finds the doctor someday (i hope i meet him too)
