"Me And Mrs. Jones"

(As recorded by Billy Paul)
KENNY GAMBLE
LEON HUFF
C. GILBERT

Me and Mrs. Jones
We got a thing going on
We both know that it's wrong, but it's much too strong
To let it grow now

We meet every day at the same cafe, six-thirty
I know, I know she'll be there
Holding hands, making all kinds of plans
While the jukebox plays our favorite song

Me and Mrs.
Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
We got a thing going on
We both know that it's wrong, but it's much too strong
To let it grow now

We gotta be extra careful
That we don't build our hopes up too high
'Cause she's got her own obligations
And so, and so, do I

Me and Mrs.
Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
We've got a thing going on
We both know that it's wrong, but it's much too strong
To let it grow now

Well it's time for us to be leaving
It hurts so much, it hurts so much inside
Now she'll go her way and I'll go mine
Tomorrow we'll meet the same place, the same time

Me and Mrs.
Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
Got a thing going on

We gotta be extra careful
We can't afford to build, our hopes up too high
I wanna meet and talk with you
At the same place, the same cafe, the same time
And we're gonna hold hands like we used to
We're gonna talk it over, talk it over
We know, they know, and you know and I know that it was wrong
But I think it's strong
We gotta let 'em know now
That we gotta thing goin' on, a thing goin' on
