Doctor's Orders
Hello?
Hi, honey, it's me
I went to see the doctor today
'Cause ever since you've been gone
I had a pain deep down inside
He said there's nothing really wrong with me
I'm just missing my man
So, honey, please come on home as soon as you can

Doctor's orders say
There's only one thing for me
Nothing he can do
'Cause only you can cure me

Says in my condition
Love's the best physician
He's prescribed a potion
Full of warm emotion

Every day
A loving spoonful to be taken
It's the only way
To stop this empty heart of mine from breaking

Won't get better till
You're back again, he told me
Doctor's orders
I need your loving arms to hold me

Darling now I know
There ain't no doubt about it
I'm so hooked on your love
I can't live without it

You're away
But please don't treat me like a stranger
Doctor's orders say
One kiss from you and I am out of danger

Please say you understand how I feel, honey
I know you've got a lot of things on your mind
Oh, but I'm missing you so bad
Please, oh, please come on home

Doctor's orders say
There's only one thing for me
Nothing he can do
'Cause only you can cure me

Says in my condition
Love's the best physician
He's prescribed a potion
Full of warm emotion

Doctor's orders say
There's only one thing for me
Nothing he can do
'Cause only you can cure me

Says in my condition
Love's the best physician
He's prescribed a potion
Full of warm emotion

Darling, now, I know
There ain't no doubt about it
I'm so hooked on your love
I can't live without it
