Hello?

Hi honey
It's me 
I want to see the doctor today
"Cause ever since you've been gone
I've had a pain deep down inside
He says there's nothing really wrong with me
I'm just missing my man, so honey
Please come on home as soon as you can

Doctor's orders say there's only one thing for me
Nothing he can do 'cause only you can cure me
Says in my condition love's the best physician
He's prescribed a potion full of warm emotion every day
A lovin' spoonful to be taken
It's the only way to stop this empty 
Heart of mine from breakin'

Won't get better till you're back again he told me
Doctor's orders need your loving arms to hold me
Darling now I know there ain't no doubt about it 
I'm so hooked on your love I can't live without it
You're away but please don't treat me like a stranger
Doctor's orders say one kiss from you and I am out of danger

Please say you understand how I feel honey
I know you've got a lot of things on your mind
Oh but I'm missing you so bad
Please oh please come on home

Doctor's orders say there's only one thing for me
Nothing he can do 'cause only you can cure me
Says in my condition love's the best physician
He prescribed a potion full of warm emotion 
Darling now I know there ain't no doubt about it
