Billy Paul - Me and Mrs. Jones
Tekst en muziek: Kenny Gamble en Leon Huff
(1973)






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 go now
We meet ev’ry day at the same cafe
Six-thirty, I know, I know she’ll be there
Holding hands, making all kind 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 go 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 got a thing going on
We both know that it’s wrong
But it’s much too strong to let it go 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
Mr. Jones, we got up think going home
We gonna be extra careful
We can’t afford the bill
Oh, hold up too high
I wanna meet and talk with you
At the same place, the same cafe, the same time
And we gonna hold hands like we used to
We 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 gonna let him know now
That we got a thing going on
A thing going on
