  • Oh, yeah

    I'm in love (I'm in love)
    With the other woman
    My life was fine (Life was fine)
    Till she blew my mind, oh, shucks

    I'm just the average guy
    I fooled around a little on the side
    Never thought it would amount to much
    Never met a girl whose love was so tough

    Who'd have though a one night stand
    Could turn into such a hot romance
    Mmm, well she did it to me
    I slipped and fell in love

    I'm in love (I'm in love)
    With the other woman
    My life was fine (Life was fine), yes, it was
    Till she blew my mind, mmm

    I know the rules of the game
    You hit once, then break away clean
    I should have never gone back, I know
    But I had to have just a little bit more

    My friends laugh, but that's alright
    I may be a fool, but I know what I like
    Now I hate to have to cheat
    But it feels better when I sneak, oh

    I'm in love (I'm in love)
    With the other woman
    My life was fine (Life was fine), yes, it was
    Till she blew my mind, somebody help me

    I'm in love (I'm in love), oh
    With the other woman (With the other woman), hey, hey
    My life was fine (Life was fine), yes, it was
    Till she blew my mind, mmm, hmm, whoa, oh

    Oh, this affair is unique
    All my life I never met such a freak
    She keeps going strong for so long
    When I get home it's all gone

    Makes me want to grab my guitar
    And play with it all night long
    Oh

    I'm in love (I'm in love)
    With the other woman
    My life was fine (Life was fine), yes, it was
    Till she blew my mind, mmm, tell me

    Has anybody else out there
    Ever fell in love (Fell in love)
    With the other woman (With the other woman), oh
    With the other woman (With the other woman), oh

    Said I'm in love (I'm in love)
    With the other woman
    With the other woman (I'm in love), ooh
    With the other woman (With the other woman)

    I'm in love (I'm in love)
