I don't want to 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 and I don't want to do wrong
I don't want to do wrong but it's been so long, oh, it's been so long
I just can't help myself, no, no, no, no

Since you've been away, I've been prayin' everyday
For God to make me strong till you get back home
No no, no no, I don't want to do, no, but this old heart keeps tellin' me to
And though I've tried with all of my might, I think, I've lost this fight
I don't want to do wrong, it's been so long
And I just can't help myself, no, no, no

No, I don't wanna, no, I didn't want to do it
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 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, no, no

I don't want to do wrong but it's been so long, yeah
I just can't help myself, no, no, no, I don't wanna, it's been so long
I just can't help myself, no, no, no

No, I don't want to do wrong but I just can't help it, baby
I don't want to do wrong
