  • 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' there and 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 a-wanderin' 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 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 Writer/s: MCCOY, TONY MORAN
