I'm a specialist, baby -
I'm the one you should see.
I said I'm a specialist -
I'm the one you should see.
When every doctor lets you down
it is time to try me.

They can x-ray you, baby,
to see if you broke a bone.
Oh, they x-ray you, baby,
to see if you broke a bone.
But I'm the one who can help you
when you feel all alone.

They can write you prescriptions
that no one can read.
They may write those prescriptions
that no one can read.
But I am legible, baby,
and I have what you need.

They will give you an appointment
that is six months away.
Well, they give you an appointment
and it is six months away.
But I can see you right now,
without any delay.

So forget all those doctors
when you're feeling blue.
Yes, forget all about them
when you're feeling blue.
I'm a specialist, baby,
and my specialty is you.
Regular blues. There's always one more.

like it... sounds a little like old Jimmy Jones' "Handiman" or what'sit... before Strait ever had his own song along the same lines...

Cool, the house is officially listed for sale. As soon as that is complete, it will be new computer time and some learning about recording and mixing multiple tracks. I've been carrying the lyrics in my pocket for days now, with no time to reread them. lol. I will do so tonight.
