F F Ab Bb Ab F

All you fellows, gather 'round me

F F Ab Bb Ab F

And let me give you some good advice

F F Ab Bb Ab F

What I'm gonna, gonna ask you now

F F Ab Bb Ab F

You better think about it twice

Dm Am

While you're lying, cheating on your woman

Gm Bb C

There is something you never ever thought of, now tell me

Chorus:

F F Ab Bb Ab F

Who's making love to your old lady

F F Ab Bb Ab F

While you were out making love [1: hear me now]

F F Ab Bb Ab F

[1: Now] who's making love to your old lady

F F Ab Bb Ab [1: C 2, 3: F]

While you were out making love

Verse 2:

I've seen so, so many fellows

Fall in that same old bag

Thinking that a woman is made to

To be beat on and treated so bad

Oh, fellows, let me ask you something

I'm sure that you never even dreamed of, now tell me

[repeat chorus]

Bridge:

F Ab/F

I know there are some women guilty of this too

Bb/F Ab/F

I'm not tryin' to run your life, the choice is up to you

C Db Ab Eb C

/ / / / / / / / / / / / / / / /

Oh, you oh! oh, you, you you

Verse 3:

The reason why I ask this question

I used to be the same old way

When I decided to straighten up

I found it was a bit too late

Oh, yeah, that's when it all happened

Something I never, never dreamed of

Chorus 3:

Somebody was-a lovin' my old lady

While I was out making love

Somebody was-a lovin' my old lady

While I was out making love

Coda [repeat to fade]:

F F Ab Bb Ab F [continue]

Now who's making love to your old lady

While you were out making love

(Who? Who? Your old lady)

(While you were out making love)
