What Should I Do?
Song for Teaching About Ethical Decision Making
Linda K. Williams

What should I do? Oh, what should I do?
There are so many choices, and consequences, too!
What to do with my money, how to spend my time,
who to choose as my friends---oh, which choice should be mine?

I had so many decisions,
I didn't know how I could cope;
Then I learned some steps that cleared my head
and really gave me some hope.

So every problem that's bugging me,
I'll tackle it "1-2-3"---
I'll have some others think it through with me;
two heads can be better than one, you see!

(spoken) 1ST STEP: OPTIONS!

Well, what is the problem and what are my options?
Brainstorming gives me "umpteen" possible solutions!
---Got to step back, look at it inside-outside-upside-down!
People with experience can help take away my frown.

(spoken) 2ND STEP: WHAT IF'S!

For each possible solution that I'd seriously consider,
I'll picture in my mind what would happen if I did it;
What are all the pro's and con's of the options I have found?
If the list's a long one, I might even write it down!

(spoken) 3RD STEP: ACTION!

After lots of careful thinking, now I'm ready to make a choice.
The responsibility's scary, but I'm glad I had a voice.
So, with everything considered, I will choose the "best" solution,
hope I've chosen wisely, and then put it into motion.

So, now...I know what to do, yes, I know what to do,
though there are so many choices, and consequences, too.
And now I know how to think it through.
I might make a mistake or two, but that's okay; the best of us do.
And now that I've decided what to do, I feel a lot better!
