Lyrics
Don't go so far away love, try to settle down
For losing you would be more than I could bear
Tho' I'm tied to another, I hope someday she'll set me free
For I don't want a cheap love affair

I knew we loved each other the night that we first met
It just happened there was nothing we could do
Let me stay with my children til they can understand
That I love them and they'll know I love you too

[Chorus]
So darling please forgive me, don't give me all the blame
Tho' I know that it doesn't seem so fair
When I'm free I'll make you happy if you'll only wait for me
But I don't want a cheap love affair

[Chorus]
