It's a cheating situation
A stealing invitation
To take what's not really ours
To make it through the midnight hours
It's a cheating situation just a cheap imitation
Doing what we have to do
When there's no love at home

There's no use in pretending
There'll be a happy ending
Where our love's concerned
Sweetheart, we both know
We'll take love where we find it
Love and try to hide it
It's all we got
[It's a Cheating Situation lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]For we know they're not
Gonna let us go

It's a cheating situation
A stealing invitation
To take what's not really ours
To make it through the midnight hours
It's a cheating situation
Just a cheap imitation
Doing what we have to do
When there's no love at home

It's a cheating situation
When there's no love at home
