“Whatever” is a song recorded by American country music group The Statler Brothers. It was released in July 1982 as the first single from the album The Legend Goes On. The song reached #7 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. The song was written by Don Reid and Harold Reid. It is considered to be one of the rarest hits in the Statlers’ catalog, as the Legend Goes On album has never been issued on CD as of 2017, and the song had never appeared on any of the group’s compilation albums until 2010 when it was included on the 2-disc edition of their ICON Series release.

“Whatever” was the group’s first music video. However, original tenor Lew DeWitt, who performed on the track, had fallen ill and could not appear in it. His eventual replacement, Jimmy Fortune, substituted for him in the video.

The Statler Brothers – Whatever Lyrics

I’ll give you…
Whatever bangs your shutter,
Whatever melts your butter,
Whatever pops your corn
Or blows your horn.
Whatever peels your banana,
Whatever plays your piano,
Whatever, whatever mows your lawn,
Can’t go wrong.

Whatever it takes to make it better…for you
Whatever it takes to make you happy, I’ll do.

Whatever lights your candle,
Whatever turns your handle
Whatever, whatever fries your chicken.
Do a little pickin’…

Whatever cocks your pistol,
Whatever toots your whistle,
Whatever sails your boat
Or gets your goat.
Whatever plows your garden,
Whatever begs your pardon,
Whatever, whatever bakes your bread.
Go ahead.

Whatever you want you can always count on me.

Whatever you’re needin’ oh I will always be.

Whatever slays your dragon,
Whatever paints your wagon,
Whatever it takes to show your stuff,
That’s enough.
