The Lyrics

There's always that one item
That will always skip my mind.
I never will remember it,
I'll just leave it behind.
I know that if I write it down,
I'll know to do it later on,
So I'll start that list which I call "To Do".

I don't know about y'all, but I know about me,
And uhh, it's the way that I jog my memory.
I don't know about y'all, but I know about me,
And uhh, it's the way that I jog my memory

I can't remember thoughts if I had those thoughts early in the day
'Cause then my memory will fail me
And then it will slip away.
I'll later rack my brain
And then be going insane,
So pen in hand, I make a "To Do" list.

CHORUS:
I've gotta remember to sew up my pants—
"To Do".
And I've gotta note the date of my old high school's alumni dance—
"To Do".
Even though it takes some effort, it's alright.
(It's alright, now, that's okay.)
And even if I have to think of these things while at work,
There's always my "To Do"!
"To Do", "To Do", "To Do", "To Do",
"To Do" list!
"To Do", "To Do", "To Do", "To Do",
"To Do" list!

Now, there's something I won't remember late at night,
And when I take the time to write it down,
I'll feel right. (That's for later.)
And if I think of something I need to do tonight (won't remember),
And even though there's some other known plans when I'm home,
I will always need "To Do".

Now, I remember that I need to pay bills,
But I also need to buy some stamps.
And I remember that I need to buy light bulbs
For my two living room 3-way lamps.
I better write it down now
So later I don't ask how
To remember what I should shop for.

CHORUS:
I've gotta remember to check which meds are low.
"To Do".
And my blood pressure has to be checked each day, you know.
"To Do".
Even though my health ain't perfect, it's alright,
(It's alright, that's okay.)
I will always be reminded of these things when I get home—
Praise my "To Do"!
"To Do", "To Do", "To Do", "To Do",
"To Do" list!
"To Do", "To Do", "To Do", "To Do",
"To Do" list!

CHORUS:
Oh, yes, I'll remember to call up my best friend.
"To Do".
I'll remember to count all of the money I have left to spend
"To Do".
Even though I'm on a budget, it's alright,
(It's alright, now, that's okay.)
I have to budget both my money and my time,
But I have plenty of "To Do"!
"To Do", "To Do", "To Do", "To Do",
"To Do" list!

I'll remember to count all of the money I have left to spend
'Til pay day.
Even though I'm on a budget, it's alright,
(It's alright, now, that's okay.)
I have to budget both my money and my time,
But I have plenty of "To Do"!

BRIDGE:
"To Do", "To Do", "To Do", "To Do",
"To Do" list!
"To Do", "To Do", "To Do", "To Do",
"To Do" list!

I don't know about y'all, but I know about me,
And uhh, it's the way that I jog my memory.
I don't know about y'all, but I know about me,
And uhh, it's the way that I jog my memory
