Why Don't You Do Right? is an American blues and jazz influenced pop song – now a standard – written in 1936 by Kansas Joe McCoy and recorded by Peggy Lee. It is a twelve-bar minor key blues form with a few chord substitutes, it is considered a classic "woman's blues" song.

The song was performed in the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit by Jessica Rabbit at the Ink and Paint Club. Although Kathleen Turner provided the speaking voice for the character, the vocal performance of the song was performed by Amy Irving.

Lyrics

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,
Get me some money too,


You're sittin down and wonderin' what it's all about,
If 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,
Get me some money too

Now if you had prepared 20 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,
Get me some money too

Get out of here,
Get me some money too

Why don't you do right,

Like some other men do?

You had plenty of 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,
Get me some money too


Now if you had prepared 20 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,
Get me some money too

Get out of here,
Get me some money too

Why don't you do right,

Like some other men do?
