What DYou Do?

King:

What do you do, when there’s nothing to do?

What do you say to take the blues away?

When you feel as low as a gopher's pinky toe?

What do you do when there’s nothing to do?

 

What do you play on a humdrum day?

It doesn't pay when the sky's all gray

What can be done when you’re plumb out of fun?

What do you do, when there’s nothing to do?

 

Perhaps you think I shouldn’t complain

When I’ve got more cash than a cloud has rain

Maybe you think I shouldn’t fret

When I’m as rich as a King can get

 

Servant:

But, oh, he's bored, bored with his hoard

With every dish on his smorgasbord

Oh, when your monarchy is in a minor key

What do you do, when there’s nothing to do?

What do you do, when there’s nothing to do?
