"Dr Feelgood (Love Is A Serious Business)" as written by and Aretha/white Franklin....
I don't want nobody
Always
Sittin' around me and my man
I don't want nobody
Always
Sittin' right there
Lookin' at me and that man
Be it my mother, my brother or my sister
Would you believe, I'll get up, put on some clothes
Go out and help you find somebody for dissolving that pain
Yes I will

Now I don't mind company
Because company's alright with me
Every once in a while,
Yes it is, ah
I tell you I don't mind company
Because company's alright with me
Every once in a while,
Yeah
But oh, when me and that man get to lovin'
I tell you girls
I dig you but I just don't have time
To sit and chit and sit and chit-chat and smile

Don't send me no doctor
Fillin' me up with all of those pills
I got me a man named Doctor Feelgood
And oh, yeah, that man takes me off all o' my pains and my ills
His name is
Doctor Feelgood in the mornin'
And taking care of business
Is really this man's gain
And after one visit to Doctor Feelgood
You'll understand why Feelgood is his name
Oh, yeah, oh good God of mine
And the man sure makes me feel real, good

    Lyric CorrectionI don't want nobody, always sittin' around me and my man;
    I don't want nobody, always sittin' right there lookin' at me and that man...
    Be it my mother, my brother, my sister,
    Would you believe, I get up, put on some clothes
    Go out and help them find somebody for theyself if I can? Yes, I will!

    Now I don't mind company,
    Because company's alright with me every once in a while...
    Yes it is...
    I tell you, I don't mind company,
    Because company is alright with me every once in a while...
    Yeah...

    But oh, oh! When me and that man get to lovin',
    I tell ya, girls, I dig ya, but I just don't have time
    To sit, and chit, and sit and chit-chat and smile....

    Don't send me no doctor, filllin' me up with all of those pills;
    I got me a man named Doctor Feelgood,
    And oh! Yeah! That man takes care of all my pains and ills...
    His name is Doctor Feelgood In The Morning;
    To take care of business is really this man's game...
    And after one visit to Dr. Feelgood,
    You'd understand why Feelgood is his name!
    Oh! Yeah! Ooh! Good God almighty, the man sure makes me feel real... gooo-hood!

    General CommentIs startlingly confident, infused with a sexuality rarely heard before in a black female artist.
