UB40 - Guilty

Well, hello baby!
Come here and sit down and make yourself comfortable.
Tell me something, how long have we known each other?
About ten months, huh?

Say what's that on your finger? An engagement ring?
So you and John are engaged, huh?
You know he's a mighty lucky guy,
Should be proud to have a woman like you.

Listen, I've got something I wanna tell you and,
Don't think I'm getting fresh or anything like that
But this things been bugging me for a long time you know And it's kinda getting heavier and heavier each and every day.

And I've just gotta get it off my chest
See, I've never seen anybody like you
I've never known anybody like you
(Guilty, guilty of loving you)

Let me take me back to my childhood awhile
See, we had a medium size family, you know, and we weren't rich
But my mother, she tried to bring us up the best she could
(Guilty, guilty of loving you)

Didn't commit no crime nor nothing
But I had to wait until I reach manhood to commit this crime
According to the code of love, if there is such a code
(Guilty, guilty of loving you)

See, love is a thing that, well, you know?
It's a bit like quicksand,
The more you wriggle, the deeper you sink.
And when it hits you, you've just got to fall;
That's why, I do believe, that I am guilty.

Said, I'm guilty, guilty of loving you.
Said, I'm guilty, guilty of loving you.
Of loving you.
(Guilty, guilty of loving you)
(Guilty, guilty of loving you)
