You Married Men

Well she got mixed up with a married man
She was crazy 'bout him but she didn't understand
When he said he liked the married life
And he felt shook up cause he loved his wife.

He used to meet her at the oddest times
In the weirdest places for lover's crimes
It was thrillingly romantic till they felt the despair
That came from knowing it could go nowhere.

And it came as no surprise the night
She left him with tears in her eyes
She said you married men are so dedicated
But you make your lives so complicated.You Married Men

Well she got mixed up with a married man
She was crazy 'bout him but she didn't understand
When he said he liked the married life
And he felt shook up cause he loved his wife.

He used to meet her at the oddest times
In the weirdest places for lover's crimes
It was thrillingly romantic till they felt the despair
That came from knowing it could go nowhere.

And it came as no surprise the night
She left him with tears in her eyes
She said you married men are so dedicated
But you make your lives so complicated.

She made him promise to be her friend
But their days as lovers had to end
It was so much easier said than done
No matter what she said, she knew he was the one.

He said she'd always be his fantasy and
He'd never forget the girl he ran to see
But he felt like a fool for being untrue
It was something he never thought he could do.

And it came as no surprise the night
She left him with tears in her eyes
She said you married men are so dedicated
But you make your lives so complicated.

When she left town she never said a word
She wondered how he felt when he finally heard
Did he think of her in the middle of the night
Could he forget her now that she was out of sight?

He went back to how things were and
Eventually he told his wife about her
But sometimes he sees her in the back of his mind
And closes his eyes as if love were blind

And it came as no surprise the night
She left him with tears in her eyes
She said you married men are so dedicated
But you make your lives so complicated.
