About the song: Originally titled “Under a Ladder,” this song was started in 2003 and revised half a decade later. It is dedicated to all those who, ironically, have absolutely no idea that this song is about them. Do better.

 

Lyrics:

Tossin’ cigarette butts outta’ the window
The world is yours, to have and to hate
Your hat in your hand, entitled to windfall
And counting on a permanently gratified state

Your shopping cart sits in the best parking spaces
Someone else’ll clean it up — you really don’t care
You must feel like you are ahead of us a few paces
Jimmy Buffett was right – there are fruitcakes everywhere

Don’t drag your heels and tell me you’re runnin’
Don’t run me ‘round and say I’m a square
Don’t serve me dirt and say it’s delicious
Just do better
Just do better

You think the editor needs at least one more letter
On something that you know very little about
With that off your chest you’re sure to feel better
As for the issue at hand, let someone else sort it out

Another in the long line of internet dwellers
Proving customers aren’t always gonna’ be right
Another target for the tabloid newspaper sellers
The people that see common sense and then pick a fight

Don’t drag your heels and tell me you’re runnin’
Don’t run me ‘round and say I’m a square
Don’t serve me dirt and say it’s delicious
Just do better
Just do better

What is it you wanna be? What do you want from me?
I offer only peace – I am not your enemy
Maybe you’d row awhile and pull us both
Cause it’s heavy … man, you’re heavy

Don’t drag your heels and tell me you’re runnin’
Don’t run me ‘round and say I’m a square
Don’t serve me dirt and say it’s delicious
Just do better
Just do better
