(s. oliver/j. young)

When I was a kid, about half past three
My ma said daughter, come here to me
Says, things may come and things may go
But this is one thing you ought to know

(chorus1)
Ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it (x3)
That's what gets results

Ain't what you do, it's time that you do it (x3)
That's what gets results

You can try hard, don't mean a thing
Take it easy, easy, in the jive'n swing

Ain't what you do, it's the place that you do it
Aint what you do, it's the time that you do it
Ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it
That's what gets results

You've learned your abcs, you've learned your dfgs
But this is something you don't learn in school
So get your hip boots on, and then you carry on
But remember not to try too hard or it don't mean a thing

(chorus)

Ain't what you do, it's the time you do it (2x)
Ain't what you sing it's the way that you sing it
That's what gets results (2x)
