I was mindin' my own business
When you came in dressed to kill
I knew right then, I was in trouble
But not of my own free will

Now I have to say in my defense
I ain't done nothin' wrong
Just circumstantial evidence
Is all you got me on

I was just an innocent bystander, caught up in love
And since when was that a crime?
If sayin' that I'm wanting you is slander
And you're all I'm thinkin' of, but now I'll gladly do my time

There's no jury, their right mind
Would convict someone like me
'Cause the way you walk, the way you talk
I could plead insanity

But I'm prepared to tell the whole truth now
I don't need no alibi
You just put me on that witness stand
And I will testify

I was just an innocent bystander, caught up in love
And since when was that a crime?
If sayin' that I'm wanting you is slander
And you're all I'm thinkin' of, I'll gladly do my time, oh yeah

I was just an innocent bystander, caught up in love
And since when was that a crime?
If sayin' that I'm wanting you is slander
And you're all I'm thinkin' of but now I'll gladly do my time

I was just an innocent bystander, yeah
