I don't wanna do wrong
But you've been gone baby so long
And I hope I hope you'll understand
That it's really, it's really oh yes it is
It's out of my hands but I don't wanna do wrong
I don't wanna do wrong
But it's been so long it's been so long
I just can't help myself no
No, no, no

Since you been away
I been prayin' everyday
For God to make me strong till ya get back home
No, no, no, no I don't wanna do it
But my heart keeps tellin' me to
I know I tried with all of my might
Ah ha I think I've lost this fight

I don't wanna do wrong, I don't wanna do wrong
But it's been so long, it's been so long
I just can't help myself
I just can't ,no, no, no
Oh yeah, No I don't wanna
No I didn't wanna do it ooh, ooh, oh

But then again my dear
Time passed and I didn't hear
A comforting word from you to make me see
That you were still in love with me
So if by chance you've found ya' another girl
Love her and I wish ya' all the happiness in the world
'Cause I've found a new love and I can't break loose
I hope I can find happiness too

I don't wanna do wrong
I don't wanna do wrong
But it's been so long baby, baby, baby
I just can't help myself I just can't ,no, no, no
I just can't, I don't wanna do wrong
Don't wanna do wrong no
But it's been so long
Baby, baby, baby I just can't help myself
I just can't ,no, no, no
