Our Duty Lyrics


Rachel, you know I've never felt right about Anne giving up college to stay home and care for me

If you came to live at green gables I could manage just fine


This is just charity Marilla




Rachel you know me better than anyone

We've been Friends for a century

You know the pain

that I feel at the sacrifice

Dear Anne Shirley has made for me

Oh it's hard for me to ask for help

So the only thing that I can do

is remind you, Rachel

of the way we were raised

and the things your mother

often said to you

You always told me

that your mother told you

What her mother told her before

She'd say the same thing to you

that she'd say

to a son who was going to war

For some do well

some do wrong

the laggards look for beauty

But we presbyterian women know that what we do is our duty

Our duty,our duty

What we do is our duty

There's wax on the floor

and there's jam in the pantry


Company has to have tea

We won't go to bed

till the dishes are done


and we've no time for fiddle-dee-dee


And when we hear a cry for help

We always heed the call

we presbyterian women place

our duty over all


Our duty, our duty

Our duty over all


Thomas would want to stay in Avonlea

Thomas would surely understand

I can hear him saying

"Stop your blathering Rachel

and go give Marilla a hand"

You always told me

that church was impotant


But neighborliness is the core


We stick together

We do for each other


Cause that's what old friends are for


You'll be my eyes

when lights are dim


I am good company


We presbyterian women find

The strength in unity

Our duty, our duty

what we do is our duty

Our duty, our duty

Saved by our sense of duty


Marilla you know there's one thing more

my sainted mother said

you're never safe from suprises

till you're dead
