When your gal gets home, she wants to be alone,
She's left a little work undone at home,

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

Whenever you're doing whatever you should,
Just do your best to do it good.

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

When you have a fight, and you didn't win,
Buy a shot gun, start over again.

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

If your gal comes home, she's feeling tight,
She wants some loving that very night,

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

If you're feeling bad 'cause you're on the shelf,
Get some rope, go hang yourself.

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

If your gal needs money, how bad you'll feel,
Go get some money if you have to steal.

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

If your wife leaves home every time you do,
Somebody outside knows more than you.

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

When your pal buy your gal a Coca-Cola,
You can bet your life he's playing her victrola.

Do it right,
Do it right,
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.

The elephant said, when he swallowed the cat,
"Got a mouth full of kitty, and it's tight like that."

Do it right,
He did it right!
Whatever you're doing, go on, do it right.
