Doin' What Comes Natur'lly [From Annie Get Your Gun]

Doris Day

Folks are dumb where I come from
They ain't had any learning
Still they're happy as can be
Doin' what comes naturally
(Doin' what comes naturally)

Folks like us could never fuss
With schools and books and learning
Still we've gone from A to Z
Doin' what comes naturally
(Doin' what comes naturally)

You don't have to know how to read or write
When you're out with a feller in the pale moonlight
You don't have to look in a book to find
What he thinks of the moon and what is on his mind
That comes naturally
(That comes naturally)

My uncle don't pay taxes
His address never gives
They can't collect his taxes
For they don't know where he lives

Cousin Ben got angry
When they caught him stealing chickens
I'm within my rights said
He doing what comes naturally
(Doing what comes naturally)

Uncle Jed has never read an almanac on drinking
Still he's always on a spree doing what comes naturally
(Doing what comes naturally)

Sister Sal who's musical has never had a lesson
Still she's learned to sing off key doing what comes naturally
(Doing what comes naturally)

You don't have to go to a private school
Not to turn up your bustle to a stubborn mule
You don't have to come from a great big town
Not to clean at a stable in an evening gown
That comes naturally
(That comes naturally)

My uncle out in Texas can't even write his name
He signs his checks with x's
But they cash them just the same

Grandpa Dick was always sick but never saw a doctor
He just died at ninety three doing what comes naturally
(Doing what comes naturally)
