vi subversa - what a life

 

Under the Doctor

You can try hard work, you can try making money
You can try to make success
You can try strong drink, take to acting funny
Or try some liberated sex
Try overeating, get a new job
Have another baby
Maybe you're an artist, lead a revolution
Take up yoga or just go crazy
Trancendental meditation, try a new diet,
Go to discos, start again.
Try religion, write a novel.
Buy some makeup, take up jogging
Or just blame it all on the men...

What I'm trying to say 
Is you gotta be strong
Cos nothing takes the pain away 
For long

I don't want to go under
Under the doctor
Under under under under under

And when it gets real heavy, and you start getting stroppy
They'll deal you out some mighty fine dope
Librium, Mogodon, Thorazine, Valium
They haven't got a pill called Hope
Thousands of us women have been cut down by lobotomy
Terrorized by ECT
Bullied into passivity, seduced into servility
I'm talking about you and me

What I'm trying to say 
Is you gotta be strong
Cos nothing takes the pain away 
For long

And I don't want to go under
Under the doctor
Under under under under under
