Lyrics
doctor samuels
[written feb/march 2013]
[Chorus]Doctor samuels missed my pneumonia and said,
Take this medicine you’re a long way from dead,
Hate to bother you but I feel close to the line,
Doctor samuels are we wasting your time.
[verse1] doctor doctor I’m short of breathe,
I’ve got no appetite and scared to death,
It’s not serious or so you say –
There’s gonna be another day.
[verse2] I got nervous tension all of the time,
I keep telling myself I must unwind –
There’s no improvement that I can see,
Is this how it has to be?
[Chorus]Doctor samuels missed my pneumonia and said,
Take this medicine you’re a long way from dead,
Hate to bother you but I feel close to the line,
Doctor samuels are we wasting your time.
[verse3] Just arriving and overdue –
I’m much alarmed by opinion two,
Questions still remain for sure,
Shouldn’t he have known before.
[Chorus]Doctor samuels missed my pneumonia and said,
Take this medicine you’re a long way from dead,
Hate to bother you but I feel close to the line,
Doctor samuels are we wasting your time.

[break]

Repeat chorus. [gasp]

Doctor Who?
I presume he's your GP...and not very good at his job either.
It's all just guess work based on a few symptoms...and frequently wrong.
Anyway..
great arrangement and is that Barry White on the lower register vocals?
Very deep and low.
What the hell is that on the solo?
Sounds like a slide guitar played with a bar of soap.
Great stuff as always
cheers

thank you Brendan
You are most observant my [adopted]Welsh buddy. You were nearly right on both counts - number one - yes it was Barry White, but two I'm afraid the instrument used in the solo on this was a Welsh pedal steel harp played with a fresh leak. There is only one in existence and I have it. In reality - a common synthesizer ! best to be honest.

I'm glad you liked it. John.

So close to death it feels good just to be alive... too slow a tempo was just right but the idea is maybe the thing should wobble?
Really difficult to make things that wobble... hear it that way?

hi there Daug
Pneumonia can make your mind wobble - they call it the merciful killer, reassuring stuff don't you think?

Thanks for listening.

Agree with Philip
Sounds Beatles-like. Very creative and catchy and that solo works well as a break. Love the pyramid of voices too.

Sounds like it's time for a new GP.

thanks Doug
I suppose I have been influenced by the Beatles over the years especially by their variety of styles and subjects. I hate to be trapped in one area, I love all types [or perhaps most] of music from old novelty things from the 1920's and 30's to rock'n'roll to classical. Thanks again for visiting. The GP has moved away.

Oh brother,
I felt so sorry for the malpractice. There is a bit of a forlorn-ness in that solo. But, overall, I think the patient will recover despite by ill treatment just because he can sing about it. This is unique and I loved the sound of it. Thanks.

Beatles...
Yes. The allusions are very clear musically and lyrically. But they work very well and provide the appropriate vehicle for this song. I think you've done a great job especially with the general sound of the vocals: kind of throaty and with that extra bass vocal gliding under everything else. Quite an intricate job with those vocals and they come off beautifully. Glad I caught this.

I used to know a doctor
The best way to annoy him if you met him socially was say "Dave, I've got this pain"

Brilliantly done John. True story?

Cheers

Wonderful writing! The rhythm and instrumentation bring the lyrics to life and your vocal delivery (and whatever you do to get that sound) make them hilarious! Great stuff!
