Mr. Medicine

Album: Eliza Doolittle (2010)
  • Oh, Mr Medicine
    I'm so happy you came here
    You went from 'Every man'
    To 'Every man savior'

    When we all took to Everest
    We were lookin' for change, sir
    More those who start to open
    The cycle has now been broken

    First drop and you get up
    There's a pile of dirty laundry
    I know you'll clean it up
    You're the man to do it for me

    I trust your judgment
    I like the things you say
    It's common sense
    I could take three times a day

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I will take anything
    What do you recommend?

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I need my vitamins
    Will I feel better then?

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I feel so much better
    My friend's a pessimist
    But you still impress her

    If you need evidence
    Then I'll write you a letter
    I'll lick the stamp and post it
    Just so that you can notice

    First drop and you get up
    There's a pile of dirty laundry
    I know you'll clean it up
    You're the man to do it for me

    And then I saw
    That the patient has improved
    Calling sick
    Has become a lame excuse

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I will take anything
    What do you recommend?

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I need my vitamins
    Will I feel better then?

    This untidy table's turning
    You used the best detergent
    Now it's shiny, it's not dirty
    And we know that it is working

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    (Oh, Mr Medicine)
    Oh, Mr Medicine
    (Oh, Mr Medicine)

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I will take anything
    What do you recommend?

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I need my vitamins
    Will I feel better then?

    Oh, Mr Medicine, oh, Mr Medicine
    Oh, Mr Medicine, oh, Mr Medicine
    Oh, Mr Medicine, oh, Mr Medicine
    Oh, Mr Medicine, oh, Mr Medicine

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I will take anything
    What do you recommend?

    Oh, Mr Medicine
    I need my vitamins
    Will I feel better then? Writer/s: JOHN ROBERT BECK, ELIZA SOPHIE N CAIRD, STEVEN CHRISANTHOU
