Doctor Of Physick - Lyrics by Fairport Convention


Lyrics
"
Take care daughter dear
Don't dream on many gallant men tonight
Take care daughter dear
For a doctor comes to steal your books in the dead of night"
Every ?sign? in here
So wear your relic near
Doctor Monk unpacks his trunk tonight"
Oh, father dear
I dreamed last night a man sat on my bed
And I fear
When I awoke I could not find my maidenhead"
Every ?sign? in here
So wear your relic near
Doctor Monk unpacks his trunk tonight
He'll have you all
You fine young ladies, pure as fallen snow
He'll have you all
If you think upon improper things, the doctor will know
Every ?sign? in here
So wear your relic near
Doctor Monk unpacks his trunk tonight
Doctor Monk unpacks his trunk tonight
