Peggy Lee was an American jazz and traditional pop singer, songwriter, and actress.

Her most famous performances include Black Coffee, Big Spender, Fever, and Why Don’t You Do Right.

On the silver screen, Peggy Lee acted in many musicals including the voice for Darling, and the Cocker Spaniel in Lady And The Tramp.

During her career, Peggy Lee was nominated for twelve Grammy Awards. In 1995, she bagged the Grammy Lifetime Achievement award.

Why Don’t You Do Right

Why Don’t You Do Right is a minor jazz/blues standard that was first released under the name Weed Smokers Dream, in 1936.

In 1942, Peggy Lee sang it under its new name and made Why Don’t You Do Right a worldwide hit. Since then, many other famous singers have performed the song regularly.

In 1988, it again became one of the biggest songs around when Jessica Rabbit sang it in the animated blockbuster Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

My version is an acoustic guitar arrangement based on the “original” Peggy Lee version.

Never know how much I love you, never know how much I care.

When you put your arms around me.
