​Why Don't You Do Right?

This song is by Carolina Chocolate Drops and appears on the album Genuine Negro Jig (2010).

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 outta here, and
Get me some money, too.

You sitting down wondering what it's all about.
You ain't got no money that would put you out.

Why don't you do right?
Like some other men do.
Get outta here, and
Get me some money, too.

If you had prepared twenty years ago.
You wouldn't be wandering now from door to door.

Why don't you do right?
Like some other men, like some other men do.
Get outta here, and
Get me some money, too.

I said get outta here.
Give me some money, too
I said get outta here.
Give me some money, too
