About Two Lovers

"Two Lovers" is a single released in 1962 by Mary Wells on the Motown record label. The song was the third consecutive hit to be both written and produced by Smokey Robinson of The Miracles and recorded by Mary Wells, the two previous charters being "The One Who Really Loves You" and "You Beat Me to the Punch." The song's cleverly devised lyrics at first appear to be about a girl singing to one lover who is "sweet and kind" and a second who treats her bad and makes her sad; eventually, the girl reveals that the two lovers are actually the same person. The song became Wells's most successful release to date, reaching #1 on the Billboard R&B chart and #7 on the Billboard pop chart. Its success would be eclipsed two years later by the singer's most successful release ever, the signature tune "My Guy."

Well, I've got two lovers and I ain't ashamed
Two lovers, and I love them both the same

Let me tell you 'bout my first lover
He's sweet and kind and he's mine, all mine
He treats me good like a lover should
And makes me love him
I really really love him
I love him so (love him so)
And I'll do everything I can to let him know

But, I've got two lovers and I ain't ashamed
Two lovers, and I love them both the same

Let me tell you 'bout my other lover
Well you know, he treats me bad, makes me sad
Makes me cry, but still I can't deny
That I love him
I really really love him
I love him so (love him so)
And I'll do everything I can to let him know

Darling, well
Don't you know that I can tell
Whenever I look at you
That you think that I'm untrue
'Cause I say that I love two
But I really really do
'Cause you're a split personality (personality)
And in reality (reality)
Both of them are you baby (they both are you)

Well, I've got two lovers and I ain't ashamed
Two lovers, and I love them both the same
Two lovers, and I ain't ashamed

Mary Wells

Mary Esther Wells (May 13, 1943 – July 26, 1992) was an American singer who helped to define the emerging sound of Motown in the early 1960s. Along with The Miracles, The Temptations, The Supremes, and the Four Tops, Wells was said to have been part of the charge in black music onto radio stations and record shelves of mainstream America, "bridging the color lines in music at the time." more »
