Song Description

A warning about the dangers of overprescribed medication, sung from the perspective of the arrogant physician who is aware of the "malpractice" but places the blame on the patient, the pharmaceutical company ads, and his own lack of time for patient interaction.

Story Behind the Song

As a physician myself, I have appreciated this enormous problem firsthand.


do as I say not as I do
i have been trained to provide for you
take all these pills the pain goes away
don't fret the price someone will pay


do as I say not as I do
i've always known what's best for you
take all these pills and fly away
i've only got seven minutes today

take all these pills rainbow chemistry
look here's the one that you saw on tv
take all these pills and go back and play
your precious health will be maintained this way

do as I say not what you do
i can't afford to rely upon you
take all these pills be safe and sound
don't let your dog eat your scripts this time around
