Not Johnnie Taylor's biggest hit - 'Disco Lady' would become the first RIAA
platinum single in 1976 - but probably his best-remembered song:

	         F                 F      Ab  Bb  Ab  F
	All you fellows, gather 'round me
	            F                    F      Ab  Bb  Ab  F
	And let me give you some good advice
	          F            F      Ab  Bb  Ab  F
	What I'm gonna, gonna ask you now
	             F              F     Ab  Bb  Ab  F
	You better think about it twice
	             Dm                       Am
	While you're lying, cheating on your woman
	          Gm                        Bb        C
	There is something you never ever thought of,   now tell me

Chorus:

	 F                    F       Ab  Bb  Ab  F
	Who's making love to your old lady
	 F                          F      Ab  Bb  Ab  F
	While you were out making love [1: hear me now]
	          F                    F       Ab  Bb  Ab  F
	[1: Now] who's making love to your old lady

	While you were out making love

Verse 2:

	I've seen so, so many fellows
	Fall in   that same old bag
	Thinking that a woman   is made to
	To be beat on and treated so bad
	Oh, fellows, let me ask you something
	I'm sure that you never even dreamed of, now tell me

[repeat chorus]

Bridge:

	   F                        Ab/F
	I know there are some women guilty of this too

	Oh, you   oh! oh, you, you you

Verse 3:

	The reason why   I ask this question
	I used to be the same old way
	When I decided   to straighten up
	I found it was a bit too late
	Oh, yeah, that's when it all happened
	Something I never, never dreamed of

Chorus 3:

	Somebody was-a lovin' my old lady
	While I was out making love
	Somebody was-a lovin' my old lady
	While I was out making love

Coda [repeat to fade]:

	     F                    F       Ab  Bb  Ab  F  [continue]
	Now who's making love to your old lady
	While you were out making love
	(Who?  Who?    Your old lady)
	(While you were out making love)
