Lyrics:

Sometimes the feeling is right

You fall in love for the first time

Heartbeat, and kisses to sweet

Summertime love in the moonlight

Ah yippie yi yu

Ah yippie yi yeah

Ah yippie yi yu ah ah

Now that the summer is gone

You had to go back home

Please come and see me again

I’ve never felt more alone

(Baby I am missing you)

I want you by my side

(And I hope you’ll miss me too)

Come back and stay

(I think about you every day)

I really want you too

(You swept my feet right off the ground

You’re the love I found)

Doctor Jones, Jones

Calling Doctor Jones

Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones

Get up now

(Wake up now)

Doctor Jones, Jones

Calling Doctor Jones

Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones

Wake up now

(Wake up now)

Ah yippie yi yu

Ah yippie yi yeah

Ah yippie yi yu ah ah

Ah yippie yi yu

Ah yippie yi yeah

Ah yippie yi yu ah ah

All I think of is you,

And all of the things we had

Doctor, what can I do?

Why does he have to be like that?

(baby I am missing you)

I want you by my side

(and I hope you’ll miss me too)

Come back and stay

(I think about you every day)

I really want you too

(You swept my feet right off the ground

Youre the love I found)

Doctor Jones, Jones

Calling Doctor Jones

Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones

Get up now

(Wake up now)

Doctor Jones, Jones

Calling Doctor Jones

Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones

Wake up now

(Wake up now)

Ah yippie yi yu

Ah yippie yi yeah

Ah yippie yi yu ah ah

Ah yippie yi yu

Ah yippie yi yeah

Ah yippie yi yu ah ah

Please, please, cure me

Please, please, cure me

Please, please, cure me

Please, please, cure me

Doctor Jones, Jones

(Wake up now)

Doctor Jones, Jones

(Wake up now)

Doctor Jones, Jones

(Wake up now)

Doctor Jones, Jones

Wake up now

Ah yippie yi yu

Ah yippie yi yeah

Ah yippie yi yu ah ah

Ah yippie yi yu

Ah yippie yi yeah

Ah yippie yi yu ah ah

Doctor Jones, Jones

Review:

I grew up with Aqua as a pop band I listened to during junior high and high school.  This song is quite nostalgic and is even on my personal “getting ready mix” for when I need to be psyched up to go outside.

Overall it is a solid pop song from the 1990s full of repetitive lyrics that occasionally don’t make sense but still is one of those that is super catchy and will get stuck in your head.  I absolutely love this song however to be objective it isn’t great… but I still LOVE it!

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
