Do Your Duty Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
If I call three times a day
Come and drive my blues away
When you come, be ready to play
Do your duty
Verse 2
If you want to have some love
Give your baby your last buck
Don't come quackin' like a duck
Do your duty
Verse 3
I heard you said you didn't love me
Down at Mrs. Brown
I don't believe a word they say
She's the lyinest woman in town
Verse 4
When I need attention at home
I'll call you on the phone
Come yourself, don't send your friend Jones
Do your duty
Verse 5
If my radiator gets too hot
Cool it off in lot of spots
Give me all the service you've got
Do your duty
Verse 6
If you don't know what it's all about
Don't sit around my house and pout
If you do you'll catch your mama tippin' now
Do your duty
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
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
