Original song 'Firmer Hand / Do Right' performed by Stephen Lee Anderson (Daddy Murphy), Dee Hoty (Mama Murphy) from the Broadway musical Bright Star.

Daddy Murphy:
Where where where’ve you been?
You should’ve been here helpin’ in the kitchen
Where, where, where do you go? no daughter of mine ought to worry me so

Ensemble:
You’re the black sheep a little lost lamb

Daddy Murphy:
Should’ve raised you with a firmer hand

Ensemble:
Black sheep a little lost lamb

Alice:
All you ever do is reprimand

Mama Murphy:
Shame shame shame on you
There ain’t no limit to the trouble you brew

Daddy Murphy:
Shame shame shame on me
You make a mockery of the family

Ensemble:
You’re the black sheep a little lost lamb

Alice:
When ya gonna love me just the way i am?

Mama Murphy:
I pray that you will change your ways

Alice:
I don’t know why a girl can’t have fun around here.

Daddy Murphy:
Why why why on earth
Have you been so hardheaded since the day of your birth?

Mama Murphy:
Why why in the world don’t you do us all a favor be a good little girl

Ensemble:
You’re the black sheep a little lost lamb

Daddy Murphy:
Should’ve raised you with a firmer hand

Ensemble:
Black sheep a little lost lamb

Mama Murphy:
Always up to your shenanigans

Daddy Murphy:
You gotta start toeing the line.

Alice:
That’s all i ever do around here is toe the line!
You’re always saying
Do right do right do right do
Right for me
You’re always saying
Step in line better mind do or die
Do right for me
You’re always saying
Do right do right do right do
Right for me
And what’s right for me is bad for the family

Daddy Murphy:
I swear I’m going to have to rein you in!

Alice:
You’re always saying

Alice/Ensemble:
Do right do right do right for me

Alice:
You’re always saying

Daddy Murphy/Ensemble:
Step in line

Mama Murphy/Ensemble:
Better mind

Daddy Murphy/Ensemble:
Do or die

Mama Murphy/Daddy Murphy/ Ensemble:
Do right for me

Alice:
And what’s right for me

Mama Murphy/Daddy Murphy/ Ensemble:
Is bad for the family

Daddy Murphy:
Black sheep

Mama Murphy:
Little lost lamb

Mama Murphy/Daddy Murphy/ Ensemble:
Should’ve raised you with a firmer hand

Daddy Murphy:
Black sheep

Mama Murphy:
Little lost lamb

Daddy Murphy:
Should’ve raised you with the back of my hand
