I Don't Do Duets
by Patti LaBelle



I did it again, I always make the same mistake
When it comes to men I fall for the guys with the bedroom eyes
It starts out great but before too long
Mr. Right turns out to be Mr. Wrong

He said, "I love you baby, you're the best I ever knew
But I'm not ready for anyone like you
This is as far as it goes and as close as it gets"
He said, "You sure sing pretty but I don't do duets"

He walked in the room and all he had to do was smile
Waitin' in his arms, a fool would have known was a danger zone
His talk was so sweet but let there be no doubt
While I was movin' in, he was movin' out

He said, "I love you baby, you're the best I ever knew
But I'm not ready for anyone like you
This is as far as it goes and as close as it gets"
He said, "You sure sing pretty but I don't do duets"

Said I wish that I could lose my mind
For the faithful, ready, steady kind
He's out there singin' on his own
And like me, he's tired of doin' it alone, oh yes he is

I did it again, I always make the same mistake
When it comes to men I fall for the guys with the bedroom eyes
It starts out great but before too long
Mr. Right turns out to be Mr. Wrong

Enough of, "I love you baby, you're the best I ever knew
No more, "I'm not ready for anyone like you"
Not gonna fall for those lines, the lies and regrets
Not gonna sing so pretty, if he don't do duets

I don't wanna make the same mistake again

Not gonna sing so pretty, if he don't do duets
Not gonna sing so pretty, if he don't do duets
Not gonna sing so pretty, if he don't do duets
Not gonna sing so pretty, if he don't do duets
Not gonna sing so pretty, if he don't do duets
Not gonna sing so pretty, if he don't do duets
