SLS – Elevator Music

Today we have an interesting theme for Song Lyric Sunday. We are to pick elevator music. I had to ask Jim about this theme and in the end I had to type “elevator music” into a search engine and pick a song from the list it came up with. I did of course pick the sexiest song on the list!

“Me And Mrs Jones” – it does not take much to work out what is going on in this song! We are jamming it slow with this track, it’s oozing with schmaltz. Have I ever heard this in an elevator? Nope! But it was on Google’s list of elevator music and so we are going with it!

Although “Me And Mrs Jones” was originally recorded by the sensational Billy Paul, I went with a Michael Bublé recording because of the sexy video I found on YouTube. The last verse in this recording contains the vocals of Emily Blunt who was at the time involved romantically with Michael Bublé.

The song was written by  Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff, and Cary Gilbert.

Me and Mrs Jones, we got a thing going on
We both know that it’s wrong
But it’s much too strong to let it go now

We meet every day at the same café
Six-thirty and no one knows she’ll be there
Holding hands, making all kinds of plans
While the jukebox plays our favorite song

Me and Mrs, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jones

We got a thing going on
We both know that it’s wrong
But it’s much too strong to let it go now

We gotta be extra careful
That we don’t build our hopes up too high
‘Cause she’s got her own obligations and so do I

Me and Mrs, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jones

Well, it’s time for us to be leaving
And it hurts so much, it hurts so much inside
And now she’ll go her way, and I’ll go mine
But tomorrow we’ll meet at the same place, the same time

Me and Mrs, Mrs, Mrs, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jones

Same place
We both know that it’s wrong
Same time
Everyday at the same café
Same place
We got a thing goin’ on
Same time
You know it’s wrong

I can’t speak for anyone else. But I know how I felt when Simon wanted to have sex with other women at the same time he was seeing me. I loved him so much and it hurt me to the core. Simon was honest with me, not wanting to deceive me in any way. I did not want to inhibit him because I could see that would make him unhappy. So instead, I was the one who suffered pain and grief. Every time an image of him doing the things he did to me to another women, it was like a stab of tortuous pain.

Everyone is different, every relationship is different. I know me. I know my ideals. I know that now I am with a man (Ben) who has the same ideals as I do. I know that now, I don’t have to suffer the kind of pain I did when I knew Simon was sleeping with other women.
