Love in the First Degree (Alabama)

I once thought of love as a prison A place I didn't want to be So long ago I made a decision To be footloose and fancy free But you came and I was so tempted To gamble on love just one time I never thought I would get caught It seemed like a perfect crime Baby, you left me defenseless I've only got one plea Lock me away Inside of your love and throw away the key I'm guilty Of love in the first degree I thought it would be so simple Like a thousand times before I take what I wanted and just walk away But I never made it to the door Now babe, I'm not beggin' for mercy Go ahead and throw the book at me If lovin' you is a crime, I know that I'm As guilty as a man can be Baby, you left me defenseless I've only got one plea Lock me away Inside of your love and throw away the key I'm guilty Of love in the first degree Love in the first degree Oh yeah Oh yeah Baby, you left me defenseless I've only got one plea Lock me away Inside of your love and throw away the key I'm guilty Of love in the first degree Love in the first degree Oh yeah Love in the first degree Love in the first degree Oh yeah Love in the first degree Love in the first degree Love in the first degree Love in the first degree
