Do What You Do Do Well    (1965)

He couldn't move a mountain
Nor pull down a big old tree
But my daddy became a mighty big man
With a simple philosophy

Do what you do do well boy
Do what you do do well
Give your love and all of your heart
And do what you do do well

Sometimes he'd kiss my mother
And hold her tenderly
Then he'd look across the top of her head
Then he'd wink and say to me

Do what you do do well boy
Do what you do do well
Give your love and all of your heart
And do what you do do well

Well he was a man of laughter
But a tragedy came by
The tears ran free and he'd say to me
Never be afraid to cry

Do what you do do well boy
Do what you do do well
Give your love and all of your heart
And do what you do do well

Today I still remember
Just like yesterday
'Bout a mighty big man with a mighty big heart
And a mighty few words to say

Do what you do do well boy
Do what you do do well
Give your love and all of your heart
