"Dr. Feelgood" as written by Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx....
Rat tailed Jimmy is a second hand hood
He deals out in Hollywood
Got a '65 Chevy primered flames
Traded for some powdered goods
Jigsaw Jimmy he's runnin' a gang
But I hear he's doin' okay
Got a cozy little job sells the Mexican mob
Packages of candy cane

He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He's the one that makes ya feel alright
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood

Cops on the corner always ignore
Somebody's getting paid
Jimmy's got it wired, law's for hire
Got it make in the shade
Got a little hideaway, does business all day
But at night he'll always be found
Selling sugar to the sweet
People on the street
Call this Jimmy's town

He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He's the one that makes ya feel alright
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He's gonna be your Frankenstein

I've got one thing you'll understand (Dr. Feelgood)
He's not what you'd call a glamorous man (Dr. Feelgood)
Got one thing that's easily understood (Dr. Feelgood)
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood oh yeah

He'll tell you he's the king of these Barrio streets
Moving up to Shangri La
Came by his wealth as a matter of luck
Says he never broke no law
Two time loser running out of juice
Time to move out quick
Heard a rumor going round
Jimmy's going down
This time it's gonna stick

He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He's the one that makes ya feel alright
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood
He's gonna be your Frankenstein

Let him soothe your soul, just take his hand (Dr. Feelgood)
Some people call him an evil man (Dr. Feelgood)
Let him introduce himself real good (Dr. Feelgood)
He's the only one they call feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)

I've got one thing you'll understand (Dr. Feelgood)
He's not what you'd call a glamorous man (Dr. Feelgood)
Got one thing that's easily understood (Dr. Feelgood)
He's the one they call Dr. Feelgood

Dr. Feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)
Dr. Feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)
Dr. Feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)
Dr. Feelgood (Dr. Feelgood)
Feelgood, Feelgood, Feelgood, Feelgood

    General CommentMy fav Crüe song. It's pretty obvious it's the story of a cocaine dealer in Los Angeles. And it's incredibly obvious if you watch the video. Which you must do right now...

    General CommentI mean I LOVE this song (which has an obvious meaning [Jimmy deals drugs to Mexicans in Los Angeles]) ... but why would someone post it in all caps?? Seriously???

    General CommentYeah this song is so great and the music video is too. Motley Crue is one of the greatest bands. Dr Feelgood works great as a screen name too.

    General CommentGood, powerful, sign-o-the-times songwriting. I think this song was written by Nikki Sixx, who wrote most of their songs.
