Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Haha
Yeahh
Straps? Bring the hook in
Doctor won't you come and help me take this pain away, away away.
Ohhh

Doctor give me what I need to get me through the day the day the day
I want that feel good, that feel good, that real good yeahhh x2
Doctor feel good help me
Lately I been beside myself and disenlikely to hide myself

It's not like I like being by myself
I wanna see the world but decide myself
Whether or not to get up off this couch
Whether or not to get up out this house

I wanna know what it's like to feel real good
Is there something you could perscribe dr feel good
I mean he's so happy she's so free
Doctor what in the world is wrong with me

I just need some ressurance
I know my carrier won't be insurrin' this
If you could just be ernest
Oops I meant honest and make this promise

If any of this makes sense doc I know I wasn't crazy just thoroughly convinced
Go

[Chorus]
She got a set of lips like a sedative
Everytime I kiss her it's like medicine
Somethin's? nope don't let it?
Cause everytime I do I end up upset again
Haha
And then it's back to the waitin' room
Waitin' patiently for them to bring another patient to him
Anything is possible especially when you see it in the hospital
I hope dr feel good can fix me and help me find?

I made a detour quickly I tailed it to the exit door quickly before they could get me
It didn't take much to loose 'em
But before I got home I came to a conclusion
If feelin' means another appointment take?
And don't expect to call in the morning





[Chorus: x2]
