The Lyrics

Well, now she's quit her show...which means it's time for more Dr. Laura parodies! Dr. Laura's fate is almost like karma; she had very little sympathy for her listeners, and nowadays very few people have sympathy for her.
They used to call her up on the radio
If you're feeling masochistic, you could always go
Call Dr. Laura
D-R Doctor Laura
La-la-la-la Laura

She'd give you "advice", then she'd rip you apart
Criticize you to pieces and then break your heart
That's our Laura
La-la-la-la Laura, la-la-la-la Laura

Well Jade's not the world's most sensitive soul
But when her hubby and his friends treated her like mold
She called Laura
La-la-la-la Laura, la-la-la-la Laura

Well if Laura's not dumb, then I don't understand
Why she dropped the "n" bomb just cause rappers can?
M.C. Laura?
La-la-la-la Laura, la-la-la-la Laura

Well I know she's got a P. H. D.
But it's in physiology
She spent her college dissecting rats
Maybe she should stick to talkin' bout _that_?

Well now she's quit her show, 'cause she's under attack
And she wants to get her First Amendment back
Silly Laura
La la la la Laura, la la la la Laura

She's going away
She's nagging no more
They've shown her the door
I wonder who will take her place?

Well that's the lesson that you've all got to learn
If you like to light fires, then one day you'll burn
Like Dr. Laura
La la la la Laura, la la la la Laura

If you can't show sympathy, this much is true
No one's gonna have any sympathy for you
Or Dr. Laura
La la la la Laura

Well she must've had no social grace
To say "don't date outside your race
And if you do, they're gonna call you 'N'
But you should just suck it up and hold it in"

Well she blamed Obama and she blamed HBO
But she's only got herself to blame now, this much we know
Poor Dr. Laura
La-la-la-la Laura, la-la-la-la Laura
I'm currently single, but I know enough to know that I'm _not_ going to be like Jade's husband. It doesn't matter what race or ethnicity my girlfriend or wife is or will end up being; if you put her down, racially or otherwise, I _will_ defend her and you'll wish you'd kept your mouth shut. That's what men are supposed to do. Jade's husband needs to grow a spine. And Dr. Laura? Well, don't get me started....

Well, I'm not (quite) the world's most liberal guy, but I'm glad she's gone, and your rating's high, fives for "Laura." Doc, Doc, Doctor Laura.

Who can replace her - Osama Bin Laden? Once I wrote a letter about her to a local newspaper criticizing her for bashing other self help authors. The paper printed an angry retaliation from her.

Very good parody, and Dr. L deserves all of the criticism and spoofing that she is getting. But the 8 or 10 times I have heard her, I thought she gave good advice - not for the caller - but for the listeners. It seemed to me that usually the callers did not want to take her advice and usually deserved her criticism.

Women don't like her because she used to be a feminist and then she turned against them. She says women have to get married and have to stay at home and have kids. There's nothing wrong with marriage, but women have the right to live the way they want.
