If loving you is wrong, I don't want to be right.
If being right means being without you,
I'd rather live a wrong-doing life.
Your mama and daddy say it's a shame.
It's a downright disgrace.
But long as I got you by my side, 
I don't care what your people say.

My friends tell me it's no future in loving a married man.
If I can't see you when I want,
I'll have to see you when I can.
If loving you is wrong, I don't want to be right.
If loving you is so wrong, baby, I don't want to be right.

Am I wrong to fall, oooh, oooh, oooh, so depply in love with you
Knowing you have a wife and two little children depending on you too.
Am I wrong to hunger for the gentleness of your touch
Knowing you have someone else at home who needs you just as much.

Am I wrong to give my love to a married man.
And am I wrong for trying to hold on to the best thing I ever had.
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right, baby.
Ooohaaow!

No, baby.  Heh, eh, eh, eh.  Uh, uh.

Tell me, baby,
Am I wrong to give my love to a married man.
Am I wrong for trying to hold on to the best thing I ever had.
If loving you is so wrong, I don't wanna be right.
If loving you is wrong, baby, I just can't be right.
Ohaaow!

I don't wanna be right.  No, baby.
I don't wanna be right.  Oh, baby, heh.
Ohaaow!  I've been loving you a little bit too long.
I can't give up on your loving now.
I love you, want you, need you, got to have you.
Heeeeeeeeeeey!  Good god almighty, baby.
I love you.  Mmmm, hmmm, hmmm, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm.
I need you.  Let me have you.  Mmmm.
