Lyrics

Keep Doing What I Do

Written By: greg mcmorrow

KEEP DOING WHAT I DO
WAITING FOR THE SUN TO COME OUT
AND CHASE OFF ALL OF THAT RAIN
THE WEATHER GUY IN A TIE, FORECAST BLUE SKY
I’M NOT GONNA TRUST THAT BOZO AGAIN
SO WROTE THIS SONG AND IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG
WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE SOONER BUT THE PHONE RANG THREE TIMES
WORDS ON THE PAGE, WISDOM OF OUR AGE
I HOPE I CAN REMEMBER THE LINES
WHERE DID I GET THE NERVE, TO WRITE DOWN ALL OF THESE WORDS
IT’S A QUESTION, I MUST ANSWER TO
WHY OH WHY OH WHY DO I
KEEP ON DOING THE THINGS I DO
IF I KNEW BETTER YOU KNOW I’D GET A CLUE
BUT UNTIL SUCH TIME
I’M GONNA KEEP ON,
KEEP ON DOING WHAT I DO
I NEED HELP YES I NEED A FAVOR
TO MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME, AND PRIOR BAD BEHAVIOR
YOU’D HAVE THOUGHT BY NOW I’D KNOW BETTER
CUZ I’VE BEEN TRYING TO CHANGE AT LEAST FOREVER
CUZ IT’S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE, I’M NOT CURING CANCER
NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE TRUTH CUZ I DON’T HAVE AN ANSWER
I’VE GOT A LONG LIST OF THINGS I SHOULD DO BETTER
CHANGING ME IS LIKE TRYING TO CHANGE THE WEATHER
EVERYTHING THING I KNOW I LEARNED BEFORE THE AGE OF 7
THE GOLDEN RULE IS YOUR TICKET TO HEAVEN
BE HONEST AND DISCREET TO EVERYONE YOU MEET
PLAYING BY THE RULES MEANS NEVER CHEAT, YEAH YOU KNOW THAT’S TRUE
BUT I SEE SO MANY FLAWS WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR
THEY’RE PLAIN AS DAY COULDN’T BE ANY CLEARER
I COULD WRITE A BOOK ABOUT THE WRONG STEPS I TOOK
I DESERVE A 2ND CHANCE, I DESERVE A 2ND LOOK
I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WISE BY NOW,
SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHO WHAT WHERE AND HOW
THERE’S THIS QUESTION, THAT I OWE YOU AN ANSWER TO
YOU KNOW I REALLY DO
WHY OH WHY OH WHY DO I
KEEP ON DOING THE THINGS I DO
IF I KNEW BETTER YOU KNOW I’D GET A CLUE
BUT UNTIL SUCH TIME
I’M GONNA KEEP ON,
KEEP ON DOING WHAT I DO
