A song of hopeful uncertainty this. The singer is doing what looks right, but is never quite sure. A nice accident made for an interesting end. In the course of recording this track a second...
I hope I'm doin' right
when I make a cup of coffee,
when I turn out the light.
I hope I'm doin' it right.
It seems so easy to make a mistake.

Get up in the morning to put my shoes on.
Sometimes my left is right,
my right is wrong.
I need something to help me wake up
Pour out some coffee into my teacup.
Just when things begin to happen
I find myself so ill prepared.
Nothing and no one shows up.
It don't bother me, no, cause I'm not scared.

I hope I'm doin' it right
when I walk into the room,
when I begin to take a bite.
I hope I'm doin' it right.
Sometimes you never know until it's too late.

My salt shaker is full of pepper.
My butter dish holds my margarine.
My dentist is always ready and waiting.
My doctor's out when I come in.
When my turn comes I usually take it.
Still, I sometimes wait in line.
To get ahead it takes some patience.
I often lose what I can't find.

I hope I'm doin' it right,
When I can't see it,
when it's right there in sight.
I hope I'm doin' it right.
Sometimes you never know until it's too late.

Always wondering what you should hold.
Often a question of what to let go.

It's better to be safe than sorry.
I'm not sure what that entails.
Someplace else things could be quite different.
Ring up the service if all else fails.

I hope I'm doin' it right,
When I come home this morning,
When I go out tonight.
I hope I'm doin' it right
Seems so easy to make a mistake.

I hope I'm doin' it right,
when it's in color,
when it's in black and white.
I hope I'm doin' it right.
Sometimes you never know until it's too late.

I hope I'm doin' it right.
