I'll Be The Other Woman

These are the lyrics to the song "I'll Be The Other Woman" by Betty Wright a.k.a The Mistress Anthem :)


I'll be the other woman all your life 
Just as long as I'm the only one other than your wife 
Your wife, how would she feel if she caught us together? 
The same way I would feel if I caught you with another
 
Home, I know, comes first
And second to that I'll be 
But when you're not there with her
 I want you right here with me


Chorus: 
I'll be the other woman 
Just as long as I know
I'm the only other woman you make love to
I'll be the other woman 
But I've got to know
 I'm the only other woman you make love to


The neighbors are whispering, saying you don't care
 If you cheat on your wife for me, you'll on me for someone else
 I'll be your part-time love, but that's as far as I'll go 
To be your part-time fool would be stooping a little too low
 
Loving a married man 
This I really don't mind 
But a married Casanova
 Is a little out of my line


Chorus x2


I'll hold the doors for you baby
 Long as I know 
I'm the only other woman 
You make love to
 
I'll be your part-time love 
But I've got to know 
I'm the only other woman 
You make love to


Please please somebody tell me there aren't women who go about thinking this way??? Seven billion people in the world and you are having angst over a married man???

I do understand the sentiment behind this - mistresses are notoriously jealous, they already share a small part of the married man's life and wouldn't want another poacher - but Girlfriend!!l!!


p.s. reminds me of 'The Prayer of Mediocrity' from Atilola's Antonyms of a Mirage..lol

p.p.s. Thanks for sharing Prof
