Went to a party with my boyfriend
We were dancing to our favorite song
Then he turned off the lights and he walked away
Said he wouldn't be gone to long

I struck a match and there he was - kissing her
I struck a match and there he was - holding her

It took the match to catch him doing me wrong

Now it was dark and I couldn't see her face
But I saw her hittin' on my guy
A lot of the kids were dancing and having fun -
But I couldn't do a thing but cry

I struck a match and I saw him kissing her
I struck a match and I saw him holding her

It took a match to catch he was doing me wrong

I wiped away the tears and I turned my hands so no one could see
But, my girlfriend heard me crying, asked me
So, I said; amen for me

The lights went on at the party
And my boyfriend came right to my side
He said he went for a soda
I said; honey, I know you lied

Cause I struck a match
And I saw you kissing her
I struck a match
And I saw you holding her

It took a match to catch
He was doing me wrong

(Instrumental break)

Cause I struck a match
And I saw you kissing her
I struck a match
And I saw you holding her

It took a match to catch
You were doing me wrong

(Fade out)
Doing me wrong
Doing me wrong
Yes, doing me wrong
