You Can't Do Me
Off-Broadway Musical (2010)
The Scottsboro Boys - You Can't Do Me


HAYWOOD
YOU CAN’T DO ME
LIKE YOU DONE ME
LIKE YOU DID ME BEFORE
DO NOT POKE ME
OR PROVOKE ME
I AIN’T GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE
I WON’T STAND STILL
MY HANDS IN MY POCKETS
WHAT WAS A WHISPER
IS NOW A ROAR
YOU CAN’T DO ME
LIKE YOU DONE ME
LIKE YOU DID ME BEFORE

ALL
WE WON’T STAND STILL
OUR HANDS IN OUR POCKETS
WHAT WAS A WHISPER
IS NOW A ROAR

HAYWOOD
THEY CAN’T DO US
LIKE THEY DONE US
LIKE THEY DID US BEFORE

GUARD #2 (MR. BONES)
Move on! You got another twenty years.
You’re gonna lie in jail, and die in jail!
The only thing left is how people will remember you.
IF they remember you.
