Duck Before You Drown

This song is by Dinah Washington and appears on the album Back to the Blues (1963).

I don't care whose it is
If it's not hers, it's his
That's the way this world goes around
You will know what to do
When it's your time
But you better duck before you drown

Never mind what you do
Or who you do it to
It's the same all over town
You'll be where it is
Bless your sweet soul, it is
But you better duck before you drown

Beware of the water
When you go swimming
See what gets a hold on you
Take care of what ails you
Every day your whole life through
You know just where to go
Just like I told you so
Take a peep in the lost and found
You will know what to do
When the hook hits you
You'd better duck before you drown
