Intro: E 


   E
My girlfriend thinks that I'm a nutter,
   C
My parents say that I'm an utter fool,
   D                           E
For wasting my time on this.


    E
But I'm not chasing my imagination,
    C
I just can't help avoid my fixation,
    D                            E
Cos I know that he really exists.


    E                                           C
But if you look through time then you will find, 
                            D
So many artefacts have been signed with clues, 
                     E
All pointing his way.


              E
And though he may have different faces, 
  C
I think it's him in all the cases, 
    D
The man is an enigma, 
          E
Who knows where he is today.


     G              D                   E
Just have a look at what I've found and see, 
G          D              E
Am I going crazy or is he following me, 
        G           D            E
You can find his legacy sketched throughout,
           G       A            B  
Though the history books always tend to leave him out.


                E      G      
He's called the Doctor
    D      A
But Doctor What?
  E            G                D                  A    A
I think he's a Martian though I know that that's a long shot


E      G
Doctor
    D      A
But Doctor When?
           G                             A
I'll check back to prehistoric times and there he is again

                E      G
Well that's the Doctor
    D      A
But Doctor How?
   E                G                D              A
He saves the planet all the time but never stops to bow

          E      G
Oh mister Doctor
    D      A
But Doctor Who?
    G                       A                     E
And most importantly Doctor, how can I find you?

         E                             C 
He takes danger with him everywhere he goes
                                 D
So if he does show up then we'll know
                       E 
That something's not right

      E
But I just can't help but think that I
             C
Would make a good companion by his side
    D                             E
I'm pretty bright, always polite, oh Doctor take me up tonight.


  E
I know that I should get a grip
      C
But I need to see inside his ship
    D                              E
And have him take me everywhere he gone.


      E 
Or at least I'd like to meet the guy
   C
To shake his hand and say goodbye
    D                      E
And thank him for all he's done


          G    D      E
You can't deny aliens must be real
           G            D            E
Well is it that hard to believe that some might be revealed to look like us
G                D        E                        G
Well I know it's just all speculation but I feel I must
       A               B
Try to trust in what I feel


                E      G      
He's called the Doctor
    D      A
But Doctor What?
  E            G                D                  A    A
I think he's a Martian though I know that that's a long shot

    D      A

           G                             A

                E      G

    D      A

   E                G                D              A

          E      G
Oh mister Doctor
    D      A
But Doctor Who?
    G                       A                   
And most importantly Doctor, how can I find you?


G                              A
I know to you I must look like some kind of Neanderthal
G                             A
While you' re a flying cosmic genius and know-it-all
G                   A
I'm just an insect, there's nothing I can do.
G                       A            B        E     G
How could I expect that I would ever meet you Doctor! 


    D      A
But Doctor What?
  E            G                D                  A    A
I think he's a Martian though I know that that's a long shot
