Doctor!

Tell me how to make others love me!

Said the Doctor,

Take this pill twice a day

and stop eating fats

Others will come to love you

when your body has changed,

I did as the doctor said

and felt no different

he still passed me by

So I asked the preacher,

Father preacher!

Tell me how to make others love me!

Said the preacher,

Open your heart to God

He is the one

who will lead you to love

Pray child pray

and others will come to love you,

I prayed

Oh how I prayed

But God remained silent

and he didn’t even look at me

as he walked by

I asked the fashion magazine next,

Please,

Fashion Magazine,

tell me how to make others love me!

Said the magazine,

Change everything about yourself

forget what the doctor said

Health will do you no good

forget what the preacher said

God can’t hear you over the wars

Change everything about yourself,

So I changed myself

and tried to be someone new

and he looked at me for the first time

but he didn’t stay to talk

like he knew what I had done

and mocked me for it

leaving me lonelier than I had ever been

in my despair I called to my heart,

Oh heart!

Tell me how to make others love me!

Said my heart,

Love yourself first.
