"Do Right" as written by and James R. Jr. Davies....
Won't make the bed up straight
I always stay out late
I never take you out
Ask what you're all about

I always smell like smoke
Everything's just a joke
I never look at you
When you come hear me sing

These are not all of the
Many simple things
You can find wrong with me
Once would you tell me please

What do I do What do I do right
I never talk to you
Be who you want me to
My music's way too loud

My friends are all so proud
Say I'm just wasted hope
I could not thread the rope
More than my pocket's broke

And you don't see a ring
These are not all of the
Infinitesimal things
You can find wrong with me

Once would you tell me please
What do I do What do I do right
Never wanted to play in this game
Yes, you're right

But losing the game doesn't mean
That we're losing the fight
What do I do what do I do, right
Won't make the bed up straight

I always stay out, great
But what do I do what do I do that is right

    General CommentDefinitely not a one-hit wonder djdan. I think all their songs rock, but some of the really good ones are This is not Hell, Slow Change, Milk, Outhouse and Dropping Anchor.

    General Commentthis song has an upbeat feel, but with the sour relationship lyrics that everyone can relate to.

    General CommentMan, Jimmie's Chicken Shack weren't even played here in New Zealand. But I'm glad I found them online. They are awesome!

    In my opinion this song is about a girl always complaining about what her boyfriend always does wrong [even the most trivial things]. The girl never seems to have anything positive to say about him, so he's asking her what is it that he does right at all.
