You ask me not to wear cologne,
She'll know you've been with me alone.
And you can't take our secret home
So you ask me not to wear cologne.
You can wipe the makeup off,
The lipstick or a little gloss;
But fragrance lingers on
And on so you ask me not to wear cologne.
You leave my bed and go to hers leaving me alone and hurt.
I love you whether right or wrong
And you ask me not to wear cologne.
I'm not out to hurt someone,
Not you, not her, not anyone.
But I've got heartaches of my own, why,
I can't even wear cologne. Oh,
But I never meant for this to be,
It wasn't in my heart to cheat.
Love has a nature all it's own
So I willingly gave up cologne.
Oh, and every time you come to me,
I realize I'm in too deep.
I know you love us both
And I keep holdin' on you ask me not to wear cologne;
You say don't wear cologne.
Oh, whatever am I gonna do 'cause I am so in love with you.
I know you love us both, but where do I belong?
You ask me not to wear cologne?
You ask me not to wear cologne,
She'll know you've been with me alone.
And you can't take our secret home
So you ask me not to wear cologne.
Oh, how do I walk away from the greatest love I've known?
You ask me not to wear cologne.
Oh, you ask me not to wear cologne.
You ask me not to wear cologne.
She'll know you've been with me alone
And I'm a scent you can't take home.
But will I ever get to wear cologne?
