Many years ago my dad said, 'Honey
Lady Luck may never come your way
If it's love you want not only money'
This is what my daddy used to say

Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself

Waitin' around for someone who can help you
Oh, someone who can help you find your way
Then if you think there's no one you can turn to
Well, there's someone just a lookin' glass away

Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself

Wishin' and hopin' for your fortune
Prayin' that you'll see your lucky day
[Prayin' that you'll see your lucky day]
If you're lookin' for some inspiration
This is what my daddy used to say

Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself

[Prayin' that you'll see your lucky day]

Do-do-do
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself

Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself

Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself

Well, if you want it, go out and get it
You got to do it yourself, do-do-do, do it yourself
