The Doctor's Wife Verse 1 Doctor: Am Monday the twenty-sixth of March Bb Dm F Am The patient's passing seizures are becoming more pronounced by the day Am The underlying cause Bb Dm F Am Seems to be some slow progressive decay Am If I don't find a cure Bb Dm F Am I fear my patient must surely fade away C C#m But I swear I'll apply my science C C#m To the cause, brooking no defiance C C#m I'll deliver her from this malady D Ab She'll dance again Eb Em And I'll never forget when we first were courting Eb Em And she faced me, and her eyes were gleaming Eb Em In the moonlight, and she spoke so sweetly Chorus Wife: F Am Don't let me go, my darling F Am Hold me safely 'til the morning F Am Promise, when the lights are fading F Am You'll save me. DOCTOR Tuesday the seventeenth of May A worrying symptom has reared its head this week She's been bed bound for a month And now the patient is no longer able to speak She tries to utter sounds But the grip of the illness is strong and the patient is weak On the bed, in a cold sweat Like a corpse, but she'll live yet When I find the cure, I can surely promise She'll laugh again As she did on our wedding day When we danced, and laughed the world away Even now I can hear her say WIFE Don't let me go... DOCTOR Sunday the twenty-third of June The patient no longer responds to stimuli of any kind She's now my only charge I clothe her and feed her, and nightly I read by her side For though she's paralyzed I know that inside there must still be a functioning mind Neatly laid on the bed sheet I can still hear her fading heart-beat I'll keep her stable and continue my research She'll smile again And I must bring her back to me In her eyes I can see the gleam In my mind I can hear her pleading WIFE Don't let me go... DOCTOR Tuesday the eighteenth of July My latest apparatus is the only thing that's keeping her alive I had to stop her heart The mechanical replacement will ensure the other organs will survive Her body is destroyed But what nature has neglected the fruit of modern science shall provide And I've broken every code of practice But for my love I'd shift the planet's axis She'll return to me when she's been repaired She'll live again And I swear I can see the gleam In her eyes amidst the new machines And at night I can hear her whisper WIFE Don't let me go...
