Doctor's Orders

Doctor's Orders

Luther Vandross

Hoppin', hoppin' till I'm energized
'Cause I got something on my mind
So I-I said to my baby, leave the job early
'Cause I got a thing for you that's killin' me

You really know just how to thrill me
You lay those pretty little words on me
So I'll be the doctor, let me work on you
And then I'll prescribe the things we gonna do

The doctor's order said
Get some love
Said you've been goin' without it
Long enough, long enough
So here I am, boy, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of

I love it when you get sentimental
You can't be a no way but sweet and gentle
You know what to do when the world falls in
You give me the sweetest kind of medicine,
I'm wit' you, wit' you, baby

One kiss from you would be
The world sweetest kind of surgery
So you'll be the doctor, boy, won't you be
And write up a love prescription just for me
Hang with me, baby

I spoke to the main man at that love pharmacy
So let me just tell you,
Exactly what you need
I'll show you the directions
But be sure you'll read the warnin'

Try two kisses
And then call me in the mornin'

The doctor's order said
Get some love
Said you've been goin' without it
Long enough, long enough
So here I am, boy, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of

Fever, fever has got a hold on you
I see a love fever and you can hardly make it
I got fever, fever about a hundred zero two
A love fever, fever and you don't think you can take it, help me

Oh
It's hot
Oh, I'm burnin' with the fever
The doctor said
To get some love
And I'm so, I'm so,
I'm so in love with you, baby
You know you better be listenin'
To what the doctor said

I feel better now, I don't know how
We did it, but we did
Will you keep huggin' me and workin' in me
And don't you ever quit it
So get out of bed the doctor said
'Cause you're the cure I need
For anything that's wrong with me
I'm hangin' wit' you baby

The doctor's order said
Get some love
Said you've been goin' without it
Long enough, long enough
So here I am, boy, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of

You need to hear what the doctor said
Love and get you some love
Get to my love, get to my love,
Got to be love
So here I am, boy
To hook you up
And that's exactly
What I'm dreamin' of, hey, hey

The doctor's order said
Get some love
Said you've been goin' without it
Long enough, long enough
So here I am, boy, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of
