This song is good for illustrating the use of do and does:-

The boy does nothing

by Alesha Dixon

I (I've) got a man with two left feet
And when he dances down to the beat,
I really think that he should know
That his rhythms go go go.

I got a man with two left feet
And when he dances down to the beat,
I really think that he should know
That his rhythms go go go.

CHORUS
Does he wash up? He never wash(es) up
Does he clean up? No, he never cleans up
Does he brush up? He never brushes up
He does nothing the boy does nothing
(Repeat chorus)

Hey boy how 've  you been?
I got a thousand lines
Where do I begin?
And I, I been here, been there
Traveling
I saw you at the corner
My vibe kicked in.

And
Two tunes
I clock you
Wearing tight jeans
A real nice suit
You were smiling like you
Was (were) just seventeen,
I asked him for a dance
He said ‘yes please’.

Take a sip of dancing juice
Everybody’s onto you
To the left and to the right
Everybody hit the rhythm
It’s on tonight.
I’m gonna (going to)  feel the heat within my soul
I need a man to take control.
Let the melody blow you all away.

Here we go!

CHORUS
Does he wash up? Never wash(es) up
Does he clean up? No, he never cleans up
Does he brush up? He never brushes up,
He does nothing the boy does nothing.
(Repeat chorus)

Work it out now!
Work it, Work it out now!

Do the mambo
Shake it all around now!

Everybody on the floor
Let me see you clap your hands!

I wanna see you work!
I wanna see you move your body in turn!
I wanna see you shake your hips and learn!
I wanna see you work it, work it, work it out now!

I wanna see you work!
I wanna see you move your body in turn!
I wanna see you shake your hips and learn!
I wanna see you work it, work it, work it out now!

CHORUS
Does he wash up? He never wash(es) up
Does he clean up? No, he never cleans up
Does he brush up? He never brushes up,
He does nothing the boy does nothing.
(Repeat chorus)

And if the man can’t dance, he gets a second chance.
Do the mambo
Shake it all around now!

(Repeat x 4)
