All together now.."I see cuts and bruises/broken bones, burnt fingers". I even like the silliness bits near the end, "Say aaah" etc.

How did this song ever end up on 'Spellbound'?...or for that matter, its parent album?...it sounds more like a novelty number than anything serious...it has to be the weakest selection on an album subtitled 'The Very Best Of Split Enz'.
I'm really fond of Doctor Love. To my ears, the vocal melodies of the verses in Doctor Love and Don't Dream It's Over are in the same vein. In Doctor Love, I can hear Neil's songwriting heading towards Don't Dream It's Over.
