Michael Rizzo (Chessman) - Words and music to Why don't you do right

Why don't you do right
by Mr. Peggy Lee

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 
wonderin' what it's all about 
You ain't got no money 
they will put you out 


If you have prepared 
20 years ago 
You wouldn't be wanderin' 
now from door to door 


I fell for you jiving 
and I took you in 
Now all you've got to 
offer me is a drink of gin
