Mel Street – If I Had A Cheating Heart Lyrics

Your ruby lips girl they tempt
And your beauty is a work of art
I could get lost inside your arms
If I had a cheating heart

Your eyes tell me you don’t mean maybe
And oh baby you’re making it hard
And it would be easy to let you please me
If I had a cheating heart

You touch my hand and my knees get weak
If I’m leaving I’d better start
I know you could turn me every way but loose
If I had a cheating heart
