lyrics

You go down King Street on the sixpenny side
Look for the house that ain’t a coffin length wide
If you see shadows dancing in the hall
It’s just the people from the paper on the wall
Spirits in the know this is where they go
To get some healing from the Doctor to the Dead

You know the doctor says the air is alive
More ghosts a-buzzin’ than bees in the hive
All through the churchyard you can hear a sad cry
Another lonely soul who don’t know how to die
Souls who can’t rest search out the best
They find they’re welcomed by the Doctor to the Dead

Some say love is like a hole in the ground
And death will never set you free
Go to the doctor, you know he’ll be around
He can set you right for eternity

Doctor got a sweetheart she’s so gentle and fair
A yellow ball gown and pearls in her hair
But she’s been dead for two hundred years
And every night the lover’s gotta shed the same tears
Cause he’s a slave to love’s eternal grave
It ain’t a cakewalk being Doctor to the Dead

Some say love is like a hole in the ground
And death will never set you free
Go to the doctor, you know he’ll be around
He can set you right for eternity

You go down King Street on the sixpenny side
Look for a house that’s a coffin length wide
You see the shadows dancing in the hall
It’s just the people from the paper on the wall
Seek and you find a love to last all time
Walking slowly with the Doctor to the Dead
He’s a Doctor to the Dead
It’s not just in your head
Doctor to the Dead
