Linda Ronstadt – Do What You Gotta Do lyrics

Written by Jimmy Webb
Copyright 1967 Charles Koppelman Music/ Martin Bandier
Music/ Jonathan Three Music Co. (Bmi)

Man I can understand how it might be kinda hard to love a girl like me
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
I love you better than your own kin did from the very start
It's my own fault for what happens to my heart
You see I've always known you'd go

But you just do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
Though it may mean I'll never kiss your sweet lips again
Pay that no mind
Just find that dappled dream of yours
Come on back and see me when you can

Well I know they make you sad
They make you feel so bad
They say you don't treat me like you should
Folks got ways to make you feel no good
I guess they got no way to know
I've had my eyes wide open from the start
And boy you never lied to me
And the part of you they'll never see
Is the part you've shown to me

So you just do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
Though it may mean I'll never kiss those sweet lips again
Pay that no mind
Just find that dappled dream of yours
Come on back and see me
Come on back and see me
Come on back see me when you caa............. Aaaaan oh oh
