(If Loving You is Wrong) I Don't Want to be Right

© Songwriters: Banks, Hampton and Jackson

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

My 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 my people say

My friends tell me there's no future
In loving a married man
If I can't see you when I want
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 you got a wife and two little children
Depending on you too

And am I wrong to hunger, for the gentleness of your touch
Knowing you got someone else at home
Who needs you just as much

Am I wrong to fall in love
With 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

Am I wrong to give my 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
