Dr.Jimmy Lyrics - The Who

Review The Song (3)



(Including John's theme, Is It Me?)

Laugh and say I'm green
I've seen things you'll never see.
Talk behind my back
But I'm off the beaten track.
I'll take on anyone
Ain't scared of a bloody nose,
Drink till I drop down
With one eye on my clothes.

What is it? I'll take it.
Who is she? I'll rape it.
Got a bet there? I'll meet it.
Getting High? You can't beat it.

Doctor Jimmy and mister Jim
When I'm pilled you don't notice him,
He only comes out when I drink my gin.

You say she's a virgin.
I'm gonna be the first in.
Her fellah's gonna kill me?
Oh fucking will he.
I'm seeing double
But don't miss me if you can.
There's gonna be trouble
When she choses her man.

What is it? I'll take it.
Who is she? I'll rape it.
Got a bet there? I'll meet it.
Getting High? You can't beat it.

Doctor Jimmy and mister Jim
When I'm pilled you don't notice him,
He only comes out when I drink my gin.

Is it me? For a moment
The stars are falling.
The heat is rising
The past is calling.

Is it me? For a moment
The stars are falling.
The heat is rising
The past is calling.

I'm going back soon
Home to get the baboon
Who cut up my eye,
Tore up my Levis.
I'm feeling restless
Bring another score around
Maybe something stronger
Could really hold me down.

What is it? I'll take it.
Who is she? I'll rape it.
Got a bet there? I'll meet it.
Getting High? You can't beat it.

What is it? I'll take it.
Who is she? I'll rape it.

Doctor Jimmy and mister Jim
When I'm pilled you don't notice him,
He only comes out when I drink my gin.

Is it me? For a moment
The stars are falling.
The heat is rising
The past is calling.

Is it me? For a moment
The stars are falling.
The heat is rising
The past is calling.

Doctor Jimmy and Mister Jim | Reviewer: Layla | 3/5/13

Definitely a stand-out on Quadrophenia and Roger Daltrey's vocal delivery as a well as the subject matter and musicality of the piece certainly all contribute to that. This is one of the songs on the album that truly reveals the angst of the protagonist. It also touches on the difference between the medicated protagonist and the protagonist on alcohol ("when I'm pilled you don't notice him)--neither of which seem to be able to completely represent this complex and confused protagonist with a personality disorder. This song really just adds depth to an already complex character, not to mention an incredibly complex, but beautiful, album.

Pete, Roger, John and Kieth. Supposedly Pete tried to work thier persona into the 4 faceted James Micheal Cooper, but abandoned it. I Listen to Quadropfenia every day here at work - have done so for the last 12 years. (Some kinda record?)and it gets better and better! Thank God for the Who!

Dr. Jimmy and Mr. Jim | Reviewer: Xander | 5/20/07

This song is one of the cleverest on the album Quadrophenia. The story of the album is about a Mod with an extreme case of schizophrenia - Quadrophenia, and this song is about how he reacts to Gin.

The clever part is in the chorus "Dr Jimmy and Mr Jim" This is an obvious connection with Dr Jeckil and Mr Hyde (also about schizophrenia) but it gest more interesting. John previously wrote a song called Dr Jekil and Mr Hyde, and this song includes Johns theme, so it's very clever

Well written throughout, and somehow takes up 8 minutes without ridiculously long spells of instrumentals, and the repetion of the theme (Is It Me...) and chorus (Dr Jimmy and Mr Jim...) is kept to a minimum, but still kept memorable.

One of the most advanced songs on the album, it also moulds slowly into the instumental "The Rock" after a hosrt space of "Love Reign O'er Me" sinthesisers.
