If lovin' you is wrong, I don't want to be right
If being right means being without you, I'd rather live a wrongdoing 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

Chorus:
If lovin' you is wrong, I don't want to be right
If lovin' you is wrong, I don't want to be right

Am I wrong to fall in love so deeply 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?

Chorus

Instrumental Interlude

Am I wrong to fall in love so deeply 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,
(Havin' got?) another loveless home that needs me just as much?

Chorus

I don't want to be right, if it means livin' without you
I don't want to be right, if it means doin' without you
I don't want to be right, if it means lovin' without you
I don't want to be right, if it means sleepin' without you

    Unfortunately, the lyrics to "when a man loves a woman" by percy sledge. Could not be found because of restrictions. I love the organ playing in the background and the trumpet played at the end.

    "i know exactly how it feels. "

    I'm listening to "when a man loves a woman" by percy sledge.

    Easy 93.1 continuous soft & easy favorites, because it is my favorite radio station. They have a lot of the old songs that i used to hear when i was a child. My family also heard a lot of these songs.
