Now he couldn't move a mountain or pull down a big oak tree
But my daddy became a mighty big man with a simply philosophy
Do what you do do well boy do what you do do well
Give your love and all your of heart and do what you do do well

Now sometimes he'd kissed my mama and hold her so tenderly
When he'd look across the top of her head then he'd wink and say to me
Do what you do do well boy...

Now he was a man of laughter but if tragedy came by
The tears ran free and he'd say to me never be afraid to cry
Do what you do do well boy...

Today I still remember just like it was yesterday
About a mighty big man with a mighty big heart and a mighty few words to say
Do what you do do well boy...
Do what you do do well do what you do do well
