Young man, young man, what will you do with your life?

Young man, young man, will you turn left or right?

Because you did the right thing

You done it, yes you did it

She not gettin’ with him
B                         E
So glad you did the right thing
     B
When nobody was lookin’
  F#m
Didn’t go take the cookie    
    B                         F#m
I’m so glad you did the right thing
                  B
And this is why I sing (this is why I sing)

Look at the joy that you bring

Princess, princess, which direction will you choose?
Princess, my princess, girl will you go to work or just cruise?
So many options and so many ways
For you to spend your days
I just want you to spend them wisely

I, recognize the things you do


Chorus: (E, B, F#m, B)
Because you did the right thing
You done it, yes you did it
She not gettin’ with him
So glad you did the right thing
When nobody was lookin’
Didn’t go take the cookie
I’m so glad you did the right thing
You done it, yes you did it
She not gettin’ with him
So glad you did the right thing
When nobody was lookin’
You didn’t go take the cookie, yeah
‘Cause you did the right thing
Look at the joy that you bring
When you do the right thing
Look at the joy, look at the joy, look at the joy
When you do the right thing, when you do the right thing
