Accidentally I saw you this morning you were lovely dressed in your wedding gown
And they say that you married a stranger to me that had drifted to our old hometown
Accidentally you've met him one evening and you say it was love at first sight
Accidentally on purpose you've married accidentally on purpose for spite
Cause I saw out cheating and running around
And I was just a fool with a heart of a clown
Accidentally you were mistaken that night accidentally on purpose for spite

Cause I saw out cheating
