You had a 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 sitting down wondering what it's all about
You ain't got no money they will 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 twenty years ago
You wouldn't be a-wanderin' now 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?

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

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too?

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Like some other men do?
