B.B. King – I Know The Price lyrics

When you are lovin' somebody's lover
Then you gotta understand
Take a chance and love her
Love her when you can
That's how it is, I know the price
'Coz I'm payin' the bill

Oh, lovin’ somebody's girl
Keeps you mighty, mighty uptight
Seems the one that you love
Go somewhere else at night
That's how it is, I know the price
'Coz I'm payin' the bill

To make it some one lover
You gotta be mighty weak or strong
Knowin' in the midnight hour
When you're all alone
Now the one you're loving
Is takin' care of business at home

Oh, lovin' somebody's lover
You have to take what you can
I swear it makes you feel sometimes
Like a handout from the welfare man
That's how it is, I know the price
'Coz I'm payin' the bill
