LYRICS:

I’M HAVING A PLATONIC AFFIAR WITH A WOMAN IN A RESTAURANT.
I’VE STARTED TO DINE THERE THREE TIMES A WEEK.
SHE’S HAPPY TO SEE ME; WE KISS ON THE CHEEK.
I THINK OF HER OFTEN, AND YET, I WOULD NEVER TRY…
I’M NOT THAT KIND OF GUY.

I’M HAVING A PLATONIC AFFIAR WITH A WOMAN IN A RESTAURANT.
SHE RECOMMENDS WINES; SHE KNOWS WHAT IS GOOD.
I ORDER WHATEVER SHE TELLS ME I SHOULD.
IT’S ALWAYS DELICIOUS AND I NEVER CROSS THE LINE.
EVERYTHING IS FINE.

IT’S JUST THAT THINGS AREN’T REALLY THE WAY THEY USED TO BE.
AND THIS WOMAN WITH NO AGENDA HAS CAUGHT MY EYE.
I TELL JOKES AND SHE LAUGHS AND SOMEHOW THAT FEELS GOOD TO ME,
LIKE WATER WHEN YOU’RE DRY.
WHAT’S A LITTLE LIE?

IT’S ONLY A PLATONIC AFFAIR WITH A WOMAN IN A RESTAURANT,
BUT SUDDENLY I’M AWAKE AND ALIVE.
I LEAVE STRAIGHT FROM WORK AT A QUARTER PAST FIVE,
AND JUST AFTER SEVEN, I WALK THROUGH MY OWN FRONT DOOR BETTER THAN BEFORE!
THAT’S IT. NOTHING MORE.

JILL SAYS SHE MISSES US AND IT’S A SHAME I HAVE TO WORK SO LATE.
JILL SAYS SHE COOKED FOR ME BUT GOT SO HUNGRY SHE JUST COULDN’T WAIT.
JILL SAYS SHE’S GLAD AT LEAST THAT I GET HOME IN TIME TO TUCK OUR DAUGHTER IN.
AND JUST BEFORE OUR EVENING CAN BEGIN, JILL WILL FALL ASLEEP, AND I’M ALONE AGAIN.

SO WHAT IF I’VE GOT SOMEBODY WHO ENTRANCES ME.
WHEN SHE GIGGLES, I FEEL MY HEART RUSH; I’M SUCH A NUT.
NOTHING’S LOST. WHAT’S THE COST IF SOMEONE ELSE ROMANCES ME
AND LIFTS ME FROM THIS RUT.
WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?

IT’S ONLY A PLATONIC AFFAIR WITH A WOMAN IN A RESTAURANT.
I’M HAPPILY WED, IT’S HARMLESS AND FUN.
WE STAY OUT OF BED, I’M HURTING NO ONE.
IT’S NOT LIKE I’M CHEATING, SO WHY CAUSE A GREAT BIG FUSS?
NOTHING’S WRONG WITH US!

IT’S ONLY A PLATONIC AFFAIR WITH A WOMAN IN A RESTAURANT.
NOTHING HAPPENS.
A PLATONIC AFFAIR WITH A WOMAN IN A RESTAURANT.

HERE’S THE TRUTH: I’M SURE MY WIFE HAS GOT HER SECRETS TOO.
THERE’S NO NEED FOR MISAPPREHENSION; IT’S JUST NICE TO GET ATTENTION.
THAT’S WHAT KEEPS A MARRIAGE TRUE!
RIGHT?
