"Why Don't You Do Right?" as written by Jo Perry, Darren Lewis, Blair Nicholas Somer Mackichan, Di Barrand, Courtney Rumbold, Travie Mccoy, Jack Mcmanus and Iyiola Babalola....
You had plenty money, Nineteen-Twenty-Two
You let other women make a fool of you
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too

You're sittin' down wonderin' what it's all about
You ain't got no money; they will put you out
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too

If you had prepared twenty years ago
You wouldn't be wanderin' now from door to door
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too

I fell for your jivin' and I took you in
Now all you got to offer me's a drink of gin
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too
Why don't you do right like some other men do
Like some other men do?
