Lyrics

I wrote this song with Shel Silverstein
I made up the chorus, I never did have any verses for it
I sang it to him once so he mailed me this verse

What have you done for me lately
Is such a common attitude
What have you done for me lately
Is how old friends show their gratitude
Now just when you need a little support
Their faces get long and their memories get short
What have you done for me lately
Lately I've been doing without you

She was young and beautiful and drowning
And I was the only hero in the crowd
Gave her artificial respiration
Mouth to mouth resuscitation
Took her home and dried her out
Fed her lots of chicken soup and chocolate
And tucked her right in a feather bed
Nursed her through the night and with the
Morning light she rolled over, looked up
At me and said

What have you done for me lately
'Cause lately I've been doing without you
Now what have you done for me lately
Don't let me be misconstrued
Cast your bread on the water
What do you get? Some hard luck
Story and your bread gets wet
What have you done for me lately
'Cause lately I've been doing without you

Writer(s): Steve Goodman, Shel Silverstein
