I've heard people say that love is maeant for two
But this old heart of mine knows that this ain't true
Three's a crowd they say but somehow something's wrong
I got one I hang around and one I love at home.

(Hanging on to one, and hangin' 'round the other.)
The one I hang around is more than just a lover
The one I love at home is a good wife and a mother
Hangin' on to one and hangin' 'round the other.

--- Instrumental ---

Now heartaches on the way the ending soon will come
But I can't stand the thought of losing either one
The truth I hide inside is more than I can stand
Me and her in misery a-walkin' hand in hand.

(Hanging on to one, and hangin' 'round the other.)
The one I hang around is more than just a lover
The one I love at home is a good wife and a mother
Hangin' on to one and hangin' 'round the other.

Hangin' on to one and hangin' 'round the other...
