LyricsEdit

Katy lied, I was halfway crucified
I was on the other side of no tomorrow
You walked in, and my life began again
Just when I'd spent the last piaster I could borrow
All night long we would sing that stupid song
And every word we sang I knew was true

Are you with me, Doctor Wu
Are you really just a shadow of the man that I once knew
Are you crazy, are you high
Or just an ordinary guy
Have you done all you can do
Are you with me doctor
Can you hear me doctor

Don't seem right, I've been strung out here all night
I was waiting for the taste you said you'd bring me
Biscayne Bay, where the Cuban gentlemen sleep all day
I went searching for the songs you used to sing to me
And Katy lies, you can see it in her eyes
So imagine my surprise when I saw you

Are you with me, Doctor Wu
Are you really just a shadow of the man that I once knew
She is lovely, yes, she's sly
And you're an ordinary guy
Has she finally got to you
Can you hear me doctor
Can you hear me
