Dr. Feelgood
Aretha Franklin Lyrics


I don't want nobody
Always
Sittin' around me and my man
I don't want nobody
Always
Sittin' right there
Lookin' at me and that man
Be it my mother, my brother or my sister
Would you believe, I'll get up, put on some clothes
Go out and help you find somebody for dissolving that pain
Yes I will

Now I don't mind company
Because company's alright with me
Every once in a while,
Yes it is, ah
I tell you I don't mind company
Because company's alright with me
Every once in a while,
Yeah
But oh, when me and that man get to lovin'
I tell you girls
I dig you but I just don't have time
To sit and chit and sit and chit-chat and smile

Don't send me no doctor
Fillin' me up with all of those pills
I got me a man named Doctor Feelgood
And oh, yeah, that man takes me off all o' my pains and my ills
His name is
Doctor Feelgood in the mornin'
And taking care of business
Is really this man's gain
And after one visit to Doctor Feelgood
You'll understand why Feelgood is his name
Oh, yeah, oh good God of mine
And the man sure makes me feel real, good

It's funny how all the songs and musicians I hated as a kid, (the ones I dreaded hearing on Saturday mornings because I knew it meant cleaning the house) are at the top of my playlist now. I'm glad my grandmother instilled REAL music in me at a young age.

My mom, who is now deceased, exposed me to Aretha via vinyl records when I was a kid in the 70s. This was one of those records I always heard my mom playing on our family record player while she was in the kitchen cooking breakfast. I would wake up in the morning to the sound of Aretha and the smell of bacon. Good memories. These days, I often listen to Aretha to channel memories of my mom. Music is very powerful in that it can transport you back in time and evoke positive memories.

My mother must have played this song over and over again when I was a baby living in Garden Hills in Cincinnati, Ohio back in the day.....may she RIP
