Tell Me What To Do -single

by John Hunter Combo



Asking what will win love. Quirky humour.


Well, I watch you each day as I look for some way to make you realise I exist
But each scheme I invent never goes how it’s meant and another opportunity’s missed
I’m a cake without the icing, you’re my puzzle’s missing part
Desperately I ask you please, “How can I win your heart?”

Could I persuade you with song to love me right or wrong and never be
parted from me

So though I trekked through the Andes or sailed up the Ganges when I reached the
River’s’ source there you’d be

Like Robin and Maid Marion, Napoleon and Jo(sephine)
Or Like Mary and her little lamb
Where you are I must go

Should I write you a song, bring a small band along, throw roses till they pile at your feet
Or get a plane, learn to fly, write your name in the sky every day – would you think that was neat?
Should I write Nobel Prize novels and dedicate them all to you
Take your pick or all of this but tell me what to do!

‘Cos I watch you each day as I look for some way to make you realise I’m around
But every scheme I devise never seems very wise; on the day it never gets off the ground
I’m a lot like little David if Goliath had not come
One more time I ask you please what is it you want done?

Like Robin and Maid Marion, Napoleon an Jo(sephine)
Or like the teacher and little Mary’s lamb perhaps you’ll ‘tell me where to go’.
