If I cal three times a day baby
Come and drive my blue away
When you come, be ready to play
Do your duty

If you want to have some love
Give your baby your last buck
Don't come quackin' like a duck
Do your duty

I heard you said you didn't love me, baby
Dowm at
I don't believe a word she said
She's the lyinest woman in town

Oh babe, when I need attention at home
I'll just call you on the telephone
Come yourself, don't send your friend Jones
Do your duty

If my radiator gets too hot

Cool it off in lots of spots
Give me all the service you've got
Do your duty

If you don't know what it's all about
Don't sit around my house and pout
If you do you'll cath your mama tippin' now
Do your duty

If you make your own bed hard
That's the way it lies
I'm tired of sleepin' by myself
But you're too dumb to realize

I'm not tryin' to make you feel blue
I'm not satisfied with the way you do
I've got to help you find somebody too
Do your duty
Do your duty
