Me and Mrs. Jones

There are certain songs that when you hear them, you just want to sing out loud.

Here is one of them. ” Me and Mrs. Jones” (1972) by Billy Paul.

“Me and Mrs. Jones” was a number-one single originally performed by Billy Paul, recorded and released in 1972 on CBS Records’ Philadelphia International imprint. The single, included on the album 360 Degrees of Billy Paul, was written by Cary ‘Hippy’ Gilbert, Kenny Gamble, and Leon Huff. It describes an extramarital affair between a man and his lover, Mrs. Jones. (From Wikipedia.com)

Here are the lyrics, just in case you don’t remember them.

 

Me And Mrs. Jones
By Billy Jones

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 cool down
We meet every day at the same cafe
Six-thirty I know, I know she’ll be there
Holding hands, making all kinds of the 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 cool down
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, 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 cool down
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, me and Mrs., Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Jones
We got a thing going on
We gotta be extra careful
We can’t afford to build our hopes 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’ll make it strong, we gotta let them know now
That we got a thing goin’ on, a thing goin’ on

Even though Michael Bublé released his version in 2000. There is nothing like the original.
