Today we have Jim, guest hosting the SLS challenge, as Helen is taking a much needed break for awhile. Thanks so much, Jim, for stepping in as host.

Hope to see you back really soon, Helen. I don’t recommend you go to this Dr. Feelgood, though! Hope you enjoy the song! 🙂

Instrumental break]
[Verse 1]
Yeah yeah
Rat-tailed Jimmy is a second hand hood
Deals out in Hollywood

Got a ’65 Chevy, primered flames
Traded for some powdered goods

Jigsaw Jimmy he’s the one in the game
But I hear he’s doin’ okay

Got a cozy little job selling the Mexican mob
Packages the candycane

[Chorus]
He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He’s the one that makes ya feel all right
He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood

[Verse 2]
Cops on the corner always ignore
Somebody’s getting paid
Jimmy’s got it wired, law’s for hire
Got it made in the shade

Got a little hideaway, does business all day
But at night he’ll always be found

Sellin’ sugar to the sweet
People on the street
Call this Jimmy’s town

He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He’s the one that makes ya feel all right
He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He’s gonna be your Frankenstein

[Hook]
I’ve got one thing you’ll understand
(Dr. Feelgood)
He’s not what you’d call a glamorous man
(Dr. Feelgood)
Got one thing that’s easily understood
(Dr. Feelgood)
He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood
Oh yeah

[Verse 3]
He’ll tell you he’s the king
Of these barrio streets
Moving up to Shangri-la

Came by his wealth as a matter of luck
Says he never broke no law

Two time loser running out of juice
Time to move out quick

Heard a rumor going round
Jimmy’s going down
This time it’s gonna stick

He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He’s the one that makes ya feel all right
He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He’s gonna be your Frankenstein

[Hook]
Let him soothe your soul, just take his hand
(Dr. Feelgood)
Some people call him an evil man
(Dr. Feelgood)
Let him introduce himself real good
(Dr. Feelgood)
He’s the only one they call Feelgood
Guitar!

[SPOKEN]
Listen to Jimmy
Come play with Dr. Feelgood…

[Hook]
I’ve got one thing you’ll understand
(Dr. Feelgood)
He’s not what you’d call a glamorous man
(Dr. Feelgood)
Got one thing that’s easily understood
(Dr. Feelgood)
He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood

Dr. Feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)
Dr. Feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)
Dr. Feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)

  1. I remember liking this song when it came out. I might consider it my favorite song of theirs, though I’m admittedly not a very big Crue fan. Their best work was the video for their cover of “Smoking in the Boys Room.” The guy they got to play the principal in that video was absolutely hilarious!

    • I looked at the video for this one and didn’t really like it. I liked some of their songs back then, but don’t know if they are still working together or not, now. I saw Vince Neil on a celebrity reality show a few years ago.
