Every time I think about you
Heaven knows I fall into a groove
You're like a great interlude
Every time I think about your body my body says ooh ooh
Every time I think about you heaven needs a prayer
Cuz you're married and you've even got a family too
Pray that they don't hear you
Now let me see you dance on your tippy toe
— Utada Hikaru Tippy Toe
Your cheatin' heart will make you weep,
You'll cry and cry and try to sleep.
But sleep won't come the whole night through,
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you.
Makes you wonder
Who's cheatin' who?
And who's being true?
And who don't even care anymore?
Makes you wonder
Who's doin' right
With someone tonight?
And whose car is parked next door?
—Alan Jackson, "Who's Cheating Who"
"Thou shalt commit adultery."
