Well, I've got two lovers
And I ain't ashamed
Two lovers
And I love them both the same
Let me tell you about my first lover

He's sweet and kind
And he's mine all mine
He treats me good
Like a lover should
And makes me love him
I really, really, lov-ove part of him

Ho-ho-ho (ho-ho) I love him so
(Love him so)
And I'll do everything I can
To let him know

But I've got two lovers
And I ain't ashame
Two lovers
And I love them both the same
Let me tell you 'bout my other lover

Well, ya know he treats me bad
Makes me sad, makes me cry
But still I can't deny that I love him
I really, really, lov-ove part of him

Oh-oh-ooh (oh-oh) I love him so
(Love him so)
And I'll do everything I can
To let him know

Darling, well
Don't you know that I can tell?
Whenever, I look at you-ooo
That you think that I'm untrue
'Cause I say that I love two
But I really, really, do

'Cause you're a split-personality
(Split-personality)
And in reality (and in reality)
Both of them are you
(They both are you)
We can't change (they're you)

Well, I've got two lovers
And I ain't ashamed
Two lovers
And I love them both the same

FADES

Two lovers and I ain't ashamed.
