The Weed Smoker's Dream
Hugh Laurie and the Copper Bottom Band Lyrics


Sitting on a million, sitting on it everyday
Can't make no money giving your stuff away
Why don't you do like, like the millionaires do
Put your stuff on the market and make a million too

Face of a betting women, she bets on every hand
She's a tricking modafunkyou everywhere she lands
Why don't you do now, like the millionaires do
Put your stuff on the market and make a million too
May's a good looking frail, she lives down by the jail
On the back though she got hot stuff for cell
Why don't you do now, like the millionaires do
Put your stuff on the market and make a million too

Sitting on a million, sitting on it everyday
can't make no money giving your stuff away
Why don't you do now, like the millionaires do
Put your stuff on the market and make a million too
Put your stuff on the market and make a million, too

Traduçao pro português
Sentado em um milhão
Sittin' on a million

Sentado nele todos os dias
Sittin' on it every day

Não posso ganhar dinheiro entregando suas coisas
Can't make no money givin' your stuff away

Por que você não faz o certo
Why don't you do right

Como os milionários fazem
Like the millionaires do

Coloque suas coisas no mercado
Put your stuff on the market

E fazer um milhão também
And make a million too

Fay é uma mulher de apostas
Fay's a betting woman

Ela aposta em todas as mãos
She bets on every hand

Ela é uma mãe enganadora para você em todos os lugares que ela pousar
She's a trickin' mother for you everywhere she land

Por que você não faz agora
Why don't you do now

Como os milionários fazem
Like the millionaires do

Coloque suas coisas no mercado
Put your stuff on the market

E fazer um milhão também
And make a million too

May é uma boa aparência frágil
May's a good lookin' frail

Ela mora perto da prisão
She lives down by the jail

Nas costas, embora ela tenha coisas quentes à venda
On her back though she got hot stuff for sale

Por que você não faz agora
Why don't you do now

Como os milionários fazem
Like the millionaires do

Coloque suas coisas no mercado
Put your stuff on the market

E fazer um milhão também
And make a million too

Sentado em um milhão
Sittin' on a million

Sentado nele todos os dias
Sittin' on it every day

Não pode ganhar dinheiro dando suas coisas
Can't make no money giving your stuff away

Por que você não faz agora
Why don't you do now

Como os milionários fazem
Like the millionaires do

Coloque suas coisas no mercado
Put your stuff on the market

E fazer um milhão também
And make a million too

Coloque suas coisas no mercado
Put your stuff on the market

E fazer um milhão também
And make a million too

Why Don't You Do Right?" first appeared in 1936 as "The Weed Smoker's Dream", composed by McCoy and recorded by his band, the Harlem Hamfats. The song was subtitled "Why Don't You Do Now" on the original release. McCoy later rewrote the song, refining the composition and changing the lyrics entirely. The new tune was titled "Why Don't You Do Right?" and was recorded by Lil Green in 1941 (with guitar played by Big Bill Broonzy). The recording was an early jazz and blues hit.

V. C. T.

And just a year or so later Benny Goodman made a Big Band arrangement of the Lil Green version because Peggy Lee loved singing it in her dressing room while they were doing a movie together. That version of course was a big hit and became a staple of Peggy's career.

Hugh Laurie’s piano work and Gaby Moreno’s vocals are absolutely chilling. Such a beautiful piece of music.
