do it up right lyrics – lynyrd skynyrd

do it up right

yeah she’s sittin’ at the table lookin’ down at her drink
she’s always on time – i’m always runnin’ late
yeah i was on my way…
but i got sidetracked

yeah gary called me up
said rickey’s in a jam
come on over brother – she’ll understand
meet me at the truck
we got some plannin’ to do

i’ve been bad
i’ve been good
don’t always do the things that i should
when i go – i go all night
but when i do it wrong
i do it up right

i looked at my watch – it was a quarter to three
i knew she’d be up there waitin’ on me
i-i-i-i got some explainin’ to do

i’ve been bad
i’ve been good
don’t always do the things that i should
when i go – i go all night
but when i do it wrong
i do it up right

so i headed straight home
i ain’t gonna lie
ain’t got no excuses
no alibi’s
i said i was sorry
she said i’ve heard it before
some come on over here boy

i’ve been bad
i’ve been good
don’t always do the things that i should
when i go – i go all night
but when i do it wrong…
i’ve been bad
i’ve been good
don’t always do the things that i should
when i go – i go all night
but when i do it wrong
i do it up right

baby i do it up right!

oh i’m gonna do it up right!

oh, i do it up right!
