What Do I Do

Words and music by Ruth Pelham

What do I do when my sister is crying?
What do I do? I don’t know what to say
You take your sister in your arms
And you hug her
You take your sister in your arms
And you love her

What do I do when my brother is crying?
What do I do? I don’t know what to say
You take your brother in your arms
And you hug him
You take your brother in your arms
And you love him

What do I do when my friend is crying?
What do I do? I don’t know what to say
You take your friend into your arms
And you hug her
You take your friend into your arms
And you love him

What do I do when I am crying?
What do I do? I don’t know what to say
You go deep into your heart
Love will find you
You go deep into your heart
Love will find you

What do I do when the whole world is crying?
What do I do? I don’t know what to say
You take the world into your heart
And you love us
You take the world into your heart
And you love us

What do I do when I am crying?
What do I do? I don’t know what to say
Well, you can climb into my arms
 And I’ll hug you
Yes, you can climb into my arms
And I’ll hold you
Yes, you can climb into my arms
Because I love you
