She wore an S.E.G. when she came back home

Like the cat that ate the canary

And I stood befuddled, a chauvinist stud

With his mistress quite contrary

I was smack up against the moment

I was afraid I would face someday

But the truth is a wall that you can't blow down

And it won't be laughed away



You see, my old lady went and took herself

A young man last night

It got me crazy when she said

"Baby, don't you get uptight

I think maybe it's the time for you to see the light,"

She said, "It's alright now, boy, I'm yours tonight."



Now I admit my imagination's been

The sweetest sinner of all

Yes it lives like a snake in Eden

And it forgives each time I fall

So I've been Casanova

I've double-dated with Don Juan

And though I've been doing almost everything

I never dreamed she'd be carrying on



You see, my old lady went and took herself

A young man last night

It got me crazy when she said

"Baby, don't you get uptight

I think maybe it's the time for you to see the light,"

She said, "It's alright now, boy, I'm yours tonight."



She says that she still loves me

She says that last night was no big deal

She says, "Why can't a woman play the same damn game

And act out what she feels?"

She says she's going to take a bath

I hear her singing in the tub upstairs

While I'm sitting here spitting out chunks of my heart

Forced into being fair

While she's splashing round up there

I'm supposed to act like I don't care

I hear the devil laughing somewhere



You see, my old lady went and took herself

A young man last night

It got me crazy when she said

"Baby, don't you get uptight
