Hoppin', hoppin' till I'm energized
'Cause I got something on my mind
(What is it, baby?)
So I, I said to my baby, leave the job early
'Cause I got a thing for you that's killin' me
(I like this stuff)

You really know just how to thrill me
You lay those pretty little words on me
So I'll be the doctor, let me work on you
(I'm ready)
And then I'll prescribe the things we gonna do
(Okay)

The doctor's orders said, get some love
Said you've been goin' without it long enough, long enough
So here I am, boy, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of
(Ooh, boy, my boy)

I love it when you get sentimental
You can't be a no way but sweet and gentle
You know what to do when the world falls in
You give me the sweetest kind of medicine
I'm wit' you, wit' you, baby

One kiss from you would be
The world sweetest kind of surgery
So you'll be the doctor, boy, won't you be
And write up a love prescription just for me
(I'm hangin' wit' you, baby Hang with me, baby)

I spoke to the main man at that love pharmacy
So let me just tell you, exactly what you need
I'll show you the directions but be sure you'll read the warnin'
(Say, what?)
Try two kisses and then call me in the mornin'
(Okay)

Doctor's order said, to get some love
(Yeah, get it, get it)
Said, you've been goin' without it long enough
So here I am, girl, to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of
(Ooh, girl, my girl)

Fever, fever has got a hold on you
I see a love fever and you can hardly make it
I got fever, fever about a hundred zero two
A love fever, fever and you don't think you can take it, help me

Oh, it's hot
(Say, oh, oh, oh)
Oh, I'm burnin' with the fever
(Oh, oh, oh)

(The doctor said)
What did he say?
(To get some love)
And
(And I'm so, I'm so, I'm so in love with you, baby)
You know you better be listenin' to what the doctor said

I feel better now, I don't know how
We did it, but we did
Will you keep huggin' me and workin' me?
And don't you ever quit it
(Ooh, boy)

So get out of bed the doctor said
'Cause you're the cure I need
For anything that's wrong with me
I'm hangin' wit' you, baby
(Hang with me, baby)

The doctor's order said, get some love
(Hang with me, baby)
Said, you've been goin' without it long enough
(Stay right in, hang with me, baby)

Here I am, boy, to hook you up
That's exactly what I'm dreamin' of
The doctor said, love, doctor said, love and get you some love
Get to my love, get to my love, got to be love
(Got to be love)

So here I am, boy to hook you up
And that's exactly what I'm dreamin' of, hey, hey
The doctor's order said to get some love
(When do you want it?)
Says you've been goin' without it long enough, long enough
(Oh, how do you want it)
