Lyrics



I don't need no doctor

'Cause I know what's ailing me

I don't need no doctor, no, no

'Cause I know what's ailing me


I've been too long

Away from my baby, ah

I'm coming down with a misery

(I don't need no doctor)

(I don't need no doctor)


I don't need no doctor

For my prescription to be filled

(I don't need no doctor)

(I don't need no doctor)


I don't need no doctor

I tell you now

For my prescription to be filled

(I don't need no doctor)

(I don't need no doctor)


Only my baby's arms, ah

Could ever take away this chill

(I don't need no doctor)

(I don't need no doctor)


Now the doctor say I need rest

(Hey, hey)

But all I need

Is her tenderness


Put me on the critical list

(Hey, hey)

When all I need

Is her sweet kiss


He gave me a medicated lotion

But it didn't soothe

(It didn't soothe)

My emotion


I don't need no doctor

I don't need no doctor


I don't need no doctor

For my hope to live is gone

(I don't need no doctor)

(I don't need no doctor)


I don't need no doctor, no, no

Whoa, my hope to live is gone

(I don't need no doctor)

(I don't need no doctor)


All I need is my baby

Baby, please

Won't you please come on home

Log on to kill this message


You know what I'm talking 'bout

(I don't need no doctor)


I don't need no aspirins

(I don't need no doctor)

I don't need no lotion

(I don't need no doctor)


I say, "I don't need no vitamin pills"

(I don't need no doctor)

I don't need
