If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If being right means being without you
I'd rather live a wrong doing life

Your mama and dad said
"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

Your friends tell you
There's no future in lovin' a married man
If I can't see you when I want you
I'll see you when I can

If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right

Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with you
Knowin' I got a wife and two little children depending on me too?
And am I wrong to hunger for the gentleness of your touch
Knowing I got someone else's home that needs me just as much?

If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right

Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with you
Knowin' I got a wife and two little children depending on me too?
And am I wrong to hunger for the gentleness of your touch
Knowin' another loveless home that needs me just as much?

If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right

I don't wanna be right if it means doin' without you
I don't wanna be right if it means livin' on my own
I don't wanna be right if it means lovin' without you, baby
I don't wanna be right if it means doin' without you
I don't wanna be
