Paul, Billy - Me And Mrs. Jones Lyrics



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 every day at the same cafe
6:30
I know, I know she'll be there
Holding hands, making all kinds 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
But tomorrow we'll meet the same place
The same time

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 to you
At the same place, the same cafe, the same time
And we're 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 it was wrong
But I'm thinking strong
We gotta let 'em know now
That we got a thing going on, a thing going on

    Me and Mrs. Jones
    We got a thing goin'on
    We both know that it's wrong
    But it's much too strong
    To let it go now
    We meet every day at the same cafe
    Six-thirty and no one knows she'll be there
    Holding hands, making all kinds of plans
    While the juke box plays our favorite songs
    Me and Mrs. Jones
    We got a thing goin'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 do we don't build our hopes up too high
    Because she's got her own obligations
    And so, and so, do I
    Me and Mrs. Jones
    We got a thing goin'on
    We both know that it's wrong
    But it's much too strong
    To let it go now

  37. Vike Da Vinci

    I’m Getting Married To This Song On 28th This Month🥰💯🌏🙏

  38. A daughter of the great King of kings

    Yes he'd better let Mrs Jones go her way, with her thing, sending her home alone. Because the Holy Lord God Almighty, will never approve of any sins of the flesh ie. coveting, fornication and adultery nor any other sins. Oh Thank you My Holy Father Jesus for making me free from covetousness, lust, adultery and fornication, for many years now and forever. James 4:17, : "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."


    Now I love the Holy Lord God, who is Love. And I love Jesus with all of my heart, mind, soul and strength. Amen glory to God forever for his grace and tender mercy. .

  40. Mo Pledger

    Such super music, including a wonderful instrumental arrangement. I'm ashamed for the situation though, since inevitably it hurts two different people.

  41. Paul Valdez

    Awesome song

  42. Tom Dockery

    When this song was new,radio station WHN had a talk show host who encouraged listeners to call in and tell him about their cheating.One woman did.Her husband was listening,recognized her voice,went home and killed her.The station soon dropped the format.

  46. Donald Davis II

    "Me & Kim Marie.... we had a thing goin' on....". 2014-2019

  47. Victory378

    Great song
    I loved and I was only 15

  48. John Walls

    Who's listening in February 2020?

  49. Wykeisha Craft

    Who in 2020 still listening and jamming off this song.

  50. Wykeisha Craft

    I can play and listen to music like this until I fall asleep.

  51. Howard diskokid

    Gamble and Huff, Billy Paul, mfsb and the backup of the "sweethearts of Sigma" all at the top of their game with this one. love that this song crossed several genres and was number 1 on Billboard's top 100 for a couple of weeks. So many amazing R&B Tunes never really got a chance at the top 100 but did exceptionally well in the soul R&B and disco genres of the 70s. Glad this is one that crossed over. 48 years later it is still as moving and beautiful and crisp as the day it was released

  52. From the end

    Any one notice the "Chicks" singing in the background!

  53. Alexandro Gomes

    enjoy yourselves too!

  62. Joropi

    Billy Paul's show in 1973 was the very first live show in my life - I was 17 years old. That's a great song originally performed by Elton John - however, the arrangements of this version combined with Billy Paul's great voice is far superior than the original one. Sorry Elton.
