Will Oldham – Do What You Will Do lyrics

Do what you will do
I will watch with you
Though I'm charged to wait awhile
I will wait for you in style
With you as a guide
I stay awhile
Watch with me

I won't ask you to be friends with me
Nor to stand by and protect
I can't ask you to lay hands on me
Just to show me some respect

Do what you will do...

And in rough times I can be with you
Laying early in my bed
And in time I go to sleep and you
Lay a kiss upon my head

Do what you will do...

If an end comes it is good to be
In the presence of a few
With a few friends is how it should be
When everything is through

Do what you will do...
