"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
1922
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
And 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
A-wanderin'
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
