Doctor Who

about

A few months ago I recorded a cover of They Might Be Giants' "Doctor Worm" for a TMBG tribute project for multiple reasons. One, because I love the song, and two, because I wanted to use the backing track we made for that cover for a parody I've had in mind for a couple of years.

I premiered this song live at FuMPFeST 2016, so here's the studio version.

lyrics

They call me Dr. Who.
Allons-y. How are you? I'm Dr. Who.
I'm interested in things.
I am a real doctor,
But my name's not Dr Who;
Everyone calls me The Doctor.
I live in a box.

I like to save the world.
I think I'm getting good,
But I can handle criticism.
I'll show you what I know,
And you can tell me if you think I'm getting good at world saving.
I leave the TARDIS un-locked 'cause there
Is no doorbell

When I get into it I can't tell if you are
Waiting for me to ReGen.
When I get the signal, I will
Crank out a sweet gui-tar solo!

Some day somebody else besides me will
Call me by my real name, but they
Call me Dr. Who.
Allons-y how are you, I'm Dr. Who
I'm interested in things.
My name's not Dr. Who,
But I am a real Time Lord;
I am an actual Time Lord.
I live in a box.

I like to save the world.
I think I'm getting good,
But I can handle criticism.
I'll show you what I know,
And you can tell me if you think I'm getting good at world saving.
My name is just The Doctor,
But they call me Dr. Who!
