Well, I'm a man who lives in the city.
I'm a man who lives in the street.
From F. L. A. up to Frisco bay and ev'rywhere in between.
Well, coast to coast there's a question ev'rybody's always askin' me.
People wanna know ev'rywhere I go what can the answer be.
I tell 'em music is the doctor, makes you feel like you want to.
You gotta listen to the doctor just like you ought to.
Music is the doctor of my soul.
 
Well, it seems that when I travel and I'm out there on the road, 
the freedom I need is the freedom I leave in my good time rock and roll.
There's a healing in those guitars and a spirit in the song.
no matter what condition your rhythm is in the message goes on and on.
 
Music is the doctor makes you feel like you want to.
Yo`u gotta listen to the doctor just like you ought to.
Music is the doctor of my soul.
 
If you ever wonder just how to shake your blues 
just follow this prescription and get the cure for what is ailing you.
Yeah yeah yeah.
 
Music is the doctor, (music is the doctor)
feel like you want to, (feel like you want to)
listen to the doctor (listen to the doctor)
like ya ought to. (just like ya ought to)
Music is the doctor of my soul.
 
Music is the doctor, (music is the doctor)
feel like you want to, (feel like you want to)
listen to the doctor (listen to the doctor)
like ya ought to. (just like ya ought to)
