You didn't know I wasn't free
When you fell in love with me
And with all your young heart, you learned to care
It brought you shame and disgrace
The world has tumbled in your face
Because they call our love a back street affair.

They say you wrecked my home
I'm a husband that's gone wrong
They don't know the sorrow that we've had to bear
For the one that I'm tied to
Was the first to be untrue
And yet they call our love a back street affair.

We have each other now
That's all that matters anyhow
For the judgement of gossip's never fair
We'll just be brave and strong
Then some day they'll see they're wrong
So let 'em call our love a back street affair.

We'll be free to love someday
When all the talk has died away
And the happiness we hoped for then we'll share
I'll climb a mountain high
And then the world can hear me cry
That our love's not a back street affair...
