Patti LaBelle – Shoe Was On The Other Foot lyrics

Sorry to disturb you,
But I have to get this off my chest,
I know you gotta get money,
I don't got time for emotional stress,
Taking care of home,
Means more than just rent,
It means calling now and then on occasions stopping in,
And sometimes having flowers sent,
What if I stayed out late and didn't even call,
Wasn't there to pick you up whenever you fill,
If I didn't smile and compliment you when I should,
Baby what would you do,
If the shoe was on the other foot,
I think you take for granted that I'm always gonna be here,
This is your final notice soon I'm gonna be out of here,
Now I'm not asking for a whole lot just think of me now and then,
Years from now I don't want you saying how this love could have been,
What if I stayed out late and didn't call,
Wasn't there to pick you up whenever you fall,
If I didn't smile and compliment you when I should,
Baby what would you do,
If the shoe was on the other foot,
You should do unto others as you would have them do to you,
You reap what you sow that's how it goes,
So be careful what you do,
Ain't no good gonna come to you,
What if I stayed out late and didn't even call,
Wasn't there to pcik you up whenever you fall,
If I didn't smile and compliment you when I should,
Baby what would you do,
If the shoe was on the other foot
