Love in the First Degree
Last night I was dreaming
I was locked in a prison cell
When I woke up, I was screaming
Calling out your name, whoa

And the judge and the jury
They all put the blame on me (put the blame on me)
They wouldn't go for my story
They wouldn't hear my plea

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on, baby, can't you see
I stand accused
Of love in the first degree

(Guilty) Of love in the first degree

Someday, I believe it
You will come to my rescue
Unchain my heart you're keeping
And let me start anew, ooh

The hours pass so slowly
Since they've thrown away the key (thrown away the key)
Can't you see that I'm lonely
Won't you help me please

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on, baby, can't you see
I stand accused
Of love in the first degree

(Guilty) Of love in the first degree
(Guilty) Of love
(Guilty) Of lovin'
(Guilty) Of love
(Guilty) Of lovin'
(Guilty) Of love in the first degree

And the judge and the jury
They all put the blame on me (put the blame on me)
They wouldn't go for my story
They wouldn't hear my plea

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on, baby, can't you see
I stand accused
Of love in the first degree

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on, baby, can't you see
I stand accused
Of love in the first degree

Only you can set me free
'Cause I'm guilty (guilty)
Guilty as a girl can be
Come on, baby, can't you see
