What do I do

What do I do, oh what do I do?

The sun shines so bright and there’s house work to do.

The dishes aren’t done and the floor is not mopped,

And I want to go to the coffee shop.

I don’t see the papers that need to be filed,

The bills to be paid can wait just a while.

The sun shines so bright and it’s lovely outside,

I know what to do – I’ve just got to get out.

I call up my friend, say I’ll meet her for tea,

Or coffee and cake at Java Bean.

We talk and we laugh and we have a nice time.

Now, it’s eight in the evening.

But I’m in the mood To wash the dishes and mop the floor,

To do all the things that need to be done.

I’ve had a nice day and I did it my way,

I’m happy to work at the end of the day.
