You had plenty money, Nineteen-Twenty-Two 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 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 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 (Orchestral Break) I fell for your jivin' and I took you in Now all you got to offer me's 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 ************************** LATER, ALTERNATE 1st VERSE: You had plenty money, Nineteen-Forty-One You lost it all and then away did run Why don't you do right like some other men do? Get out of here and get me some money too
