Off the Record

lyrics

Every morning at half past ten
When I come knocking at your back door
I catch myself dreaming 'bout some day when
Our love won't have to be a secret no more

'Cause I'd be lyin' if I told you
That he could love you like I do, yeah
That man of yours, someday he'll be long gone
And I'll be the one you're sleeping next to

'Cause our love is off the record
Strictly off the record it's true
Yes our love is off the record
Girl, I won't let 'em get the scoop on you

Yeah I know you got a man at home
You tell me that his love is real
You made it clear that I'm the other guy
Our love's a secret that I can't reveal

But I wanna scream
I wanna shout
I wanna tell the whole world, yes I do now, honey
You say our love's a secret for the classifieds
But to me girl, it's front-page news

And if someone comes askin' about our love
Wondrin' where, or when, or who
Don't worry babe, I won't give my name
I'll just be somebody close to you

'Cause our love is off the record
Strictly off the record it's true
Yes our love is off the record
Girl I won't let 'em get the scoop on you

Stop the presses!
Hey - ey - hey - yeah
Yeah
Wait a minute
Ooh, ooh, ooh

And if someone comes askin' about our love
Wondrin' where, or when, or who
Don't worry babe, I won't give my name
I'll just be somebody close to you

Some day our love will be on the record
At least that's what I'm hopin' for
Until our love is on the record
I'll just keep knockin' on your back door

I'll just keep knock, knock, knockin' (knock, knock, knock)
Knock, knock, knockin' (knock, knock, knock)
Knockin' on your back door

I'll just keep knock, knock, knockin' (knock, knock, knock)
Knock, knock, knockin' (knock, knock, knock)
Knockin' on your back door

Come on baby yeah (knock, knock, knock)
Knock, knock, knockin'
Knockin' on your back door
