If lovin' you is wrong
I don't want to be right
If being right means
Bein without you
I'd rather live wrong than right

Your Mama and Daddy
Say, it's a shame
It's a downright disgrace
But long as I got
You by my side
I don't care what your people say

My friends tell me it's no future
In lovin' a married man
If I can't see you when I want
I'll have to see you when I can

If lovin' you is wrong
I don't want to be right
If lovin' you is so wrong, baby
I don't want to be right

Am I wrong to fall
So deeply in love with you
Knowing you have a
Wife and two little children
Dependin' on you too

Am I wrong to hunger for
The gentleness of your touch
Knowing you have
Someone else at home
Who needs you just as much

Am I wrong to give my
Love to a married man
And am I wrong for trying to hold on
To the best thing I ever had

If loving you is wrong
I don't want to be right
If loving you is wrong
I don't want to be right, baby

No, baby, uh uh
Tell me baby
Am I wrong to give my
Love to a married man
Am I wrong for tryin' to hold on
To the best thing I ever had

If lovin' you is so wrong
I don't want to be right
If loving you is wrong, baby
I just can't be right

I don't wanna be right, no, baby
I don't wanna be right, oh, baby
I been lovin' you a little bit too long
I can't give up on your loving now
