Duty not desire Lyrics by Jeannie C. Riley
Duty not desire by Jeannie C. Riley
For a long long time I've known what's goin' on
His pretending hasn't fooled me for a minute
And it's duty not desire that brings him home
My heart is a foot stool he uses and he only takes advantage of my love
The woman in me he abuses cause it's duty not desire that brings him home
[ piano ]
Oh does he think I'm such a fool that I don't notice
The changes that have taken a place in him
Where once a love was pession now there's coldness
And the love once burnin' bright now burns so dim
My heart is a foot stool...
Yes it's duty not desire that brings him home
