Whoa, oh, oh

Your other love
Buys you pretty clothes
And all the fine things
Heaven only knows
That I wish I could

Your other love
Dances and he sings and
He swings and says
All the witty things
That a playboy should

He's got money, he's got charm
When you're walking arm in arm
It hurts me so but I just
Want you to know

That it's not easy
Heaven knows I tried
To wish the best to you
Push myself aside

Well, it takes the greatest love
That you'll ever find
To let you walk away
Leaving me behind
And that's the greatest love
Yes, it is

Your other love, he's got the power
To entertain each and every hour
Of the day and night

Your other love, he's got the ways
And the means to show you all
The wild scenes where the
Lights are bright

Lord should never be possessed
So don't you cry and be depressed
You're free to go but I just
Want you to know

That it's not easy
Heaven knows I tried
To wish the best to you
Push myself aside

Well, it takes the greatest love
That you'll ever find
To let you walk away
Leaving me behind
And that's the greatest love
