The Voice of My Doctor

Album: I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The songs on I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss are sung from the viewpoint of different characters. O'Connor told Uncut magazine about this track. "The song was inspired by a painting I came across, which had this giant stone head of a man and this tiny little Buddhist priestess leaning against him snuggling, and he had a big old tear running down his face," she explained. "I don't know whether it was the woman in a painting suddenly became the character or not, but the moment I saw it, I had the character."
