How Do You Do?

from the album

Now’s the time when you turn to your neighbor,
Test out the water,
And say Howdy Stranger,
With a tip of your hat,
Or a pat on the back,
It’s time to say How Do you Do?

Hey stranger it’s sure great to meet ya,
Was gonna buy me a soda and I’d sure like to treat ya,
I recommend that we both be friends,
so I say How Do You Do?

Now friends, this song is obviously gonna work much better if turn to do the person next to you and say “Howdy neighbor, my name is…” and you insert your name there “…and who might you be?’

Now that there device
is called breaking the ice
and for meeting new people
it sure does work nice.
Let’s try it again
With our newfound friend
Let’s say HOW DO YOU DO?

Hey stranger it’s sure great to meet ya
Was gonna buy me soda and I’d sure like to treat ya
and I recommend that we both be friends
so I saw How Do You Do?

Now boys and girls, I’m sure your parents have told you about talking to strangers,

So let’s not be careless,
This world can be perilous,
It’s crazy what people will do,
So use common sense,
and ask your parents,
and then say How Do You Do?
