lyrics

Here he comes taking life in his hands.
Here comes Doctor Lollipop.
Handing out cassettes of bands.
That’s just like Doctor Lollipop.
Stepping out into the traffic flow
with a stop sign that lets children go.

He’s the one they’ve all been waiting for.
Hits and flops and drops and swaps and so much more.
With the mop-heads he just wipes the floor
while behind his eyes he’s keeping music scores.

You can’t keep a good man down, he’s not meant for this town,
he won’t be staying round so make the most of Doctor Lollipop.

Late at night in his coffee cup
he sees his future somewhere else.
No need to talk about it much,
it’s written in the stars and shells
he kicks along the sea-front
as he’s walking to the pier.

He’s not sure how he came here to this
but in a way it is holiday bliss
as he records the sounds of sinking ships
and thinks about a future where he’ll reminisce
about being Doctor Lollipop.

He’s earnt his crust, he’s sung his song,
he knows which side the butter’s on, he won’t be staying long.

Here he comes with flyers in his hands.
Here comes Doctor Lollipop.
Looks to the right but left he stands.
Hear the cheers for Doctor Lollipop.
He spins his disc, the message clear,
you won’t start revolutions here.

It’s only time till he vacates
this bridge too far - they’ll have to wait

to discover
there’s not another
Doctor Lollipop.
