Lyrics to I Wanna be Doctor Who

Written by Baden Smith and Michael Spargo
Copyright 1980

I don't know the answer to the secret
of creation and what it means
But I'd give it all away for a twenty foot scalf
and a pocket full of Jelly Beans (You mean babies)

I wanna be Doctor Who
I wanna be a time lord to
I'd jump in my tardis
Thump up the Darleks
And come and pick up you

I wouldn't worry 'bout the zygone menace
and the Cyberman problem aint mine
Why would I bother with it when I've got you
here as well as K9 (Bow-wow)


I can't be me on Galifrey
and there's even less chance for you
To roam around the galaxy
with me when I'm Doctor Who

Yeah, Doctor Who
Doctor Who
Doctor Who
Exterminate pursue

Oh yeah, I'd have enemies for sure
but that wouldn't worry me much
'Cos when I'm Doctor Who you know
I have that magic touch


I'd jump into time and space no worries
and have some dimensional fun
And then I'd get ready to come see you
five, four, three, two, one (lets go)


I know I aint got sophistication
but that won't matter a bit
'Cos all I'll need is a floppy hat
a lot of luck and wit

Yeah, I'd go anywhere I wanted to
anywhere in time or space
And when I'm tired of flying around
I'd come back to your place

I could be a galactic hero
you know, and save the day
And when it gets too much
I'll get my tardis to take me away

But, I won't need a police box honey
to make my call to you
You'll get my message clear enough
when I'm Doctor Who
When I'm Doctor Who
Doctor Who
