You Call Me Doctor
The title “Brother” once I wore,
But that can satisfy no more.
Since on my journey up to fame,
They added Reverend to my name.
Right Reverend, then twas Very Right,
Thrilling my soul with pure delight.
Now they call me Doctor, oh how I love it!
No other title is above it!!
Never was I thrilled like this before,
I got it at camp meeting and put it on my door.
They added Doctor to my name’
Now I know I will never be the same!
So call me Doctor, man alive
On my ego I must thrive,
At conventions and camp meetings I will shine;
Praise the Lord, the title’s all mine!
Once I was humble, now I’m so proud,
Walking erect with the Doctor crowd.
Surely the world hath need of me;
A man of the cloth with such a nice degree!
The Apostle Paul knew no such bliss’
For he never had a title equal to this!
I tell you brother, I’m not the same
Since they added Doctor to my name.
