Doctor Told Me

This song is by J.J. Cale and appears on the album Guitar Man (1996).

Well, my heart ain't in it, my mind is blank
Can't seem to function, can't seem to think
Doctor told me cure your ills
Get yourself a woman, boy, that'll pay your bills

Have her clean your house, make your bed
Rub your bottom down, hold your head
Get yourself a lover, a friend and a wife
Get yourself a woman boy, get yourself a life

Doctor told me, doctor told me
Doctor told me get yourself a life

Well, I got out on the street and I looked around
Here come a woman, she was fine and brown
I said, "Come here baby, my name is Bob
I'm a long, tall lover, but I ain't got no job"

Doctor told me (I told her) Doctor told me
Doctor told me get yourself a life

Well, she looked at me with a sparkle in her eye
Told me I was crazy, told me I was high
"Get outta here", she said, "or I'll cut you with my knife"
You better be gone boy, get yourself a life

Doctor told me, doctor told me (I told her)
Doctor told me get yourself a life

Here I am standin' 'round a lonesome old house
Ain't got nobody, ain't got no spouse
I sure fell bad, I sure feel blue
One thing I sure feel, I'm sure needin' you

Doctor told me, doctor told me
Doctor told me get yourself a life
