If loving 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 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

Your friends tell you it's no future
In loving a married man
If I can't see you when I want to
I'll see you when I can
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right

Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with you
Knowing 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 somebody else at home
Who needs me just as much?

Are you wrong to give your love
To a married man?
And am I wrong trying to hold on
To the best thing I ever had?
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right

Are you wrong to give your love
To a married man?
And am I wrong trying to hold on
To the best thing I ever had?
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right
If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right

I don't wanna be right
If it means sleeping alone at night
I don't wanna be right
If it means coming home at night
I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna never, never, never be right
