Hollies – Do The Best You Can lyrics

When you come across
The guy who thinks he's boss,
Yet never knows the reason why.
He won't let you pass,
Won't answer things you ask.
He's got his orders, do or die.

Someone said to me
If you tip the doorman heavily,
His doors will open wide for you.
Goes to show what money can do.
Win again, lose again,
Don't feel sad when things go bad,
You just do the best you can,
Do the best you can.

Please be kind to those
Who fail to comprehend.
And in time, who knows,
You'll maybe make a friend.

If you leave your car,
And you're not going far,
Remember what time to be back.
If it slips your mind,
I'm sure in time you'll find
A Rita waiting in a mac.


Win again, lose again.
Don't feel sad when things go bad,
You just do the best you can,
Do the best you can,
Do the best you can.
