​Why Don't You Do Right?

This song is by Shirley Horn and appears on the album You're My Thrill (2001).

You had plenty money back in 42
You've 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 sitting 'round wondering what it's all about
If you ain't got no money gonna 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 many years ago
You wouldn't be wandering on 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

If you had prepared many years ago
You wouldn't be wandering on 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
Get out of here and get me some money too
Get me some money too, get me some money too
Get me some money, get me some money, get me some money too
