Part-time Lover se convierte en todo un éxito de Stevie Wonder, convirtiéndose en la primera canción de la historia en alcanzar a la vez el número 1 de cuatro listas distintas del Billboard; pop, r&b, dance, y adult contemporany, logrando también ser nominada a los premios Grammy. En la canción podemos encontrar la voz elegante de Luther Vandross, la dulce de su ex-mujer Syreeta Wright, o la inconfundible de Philip Bailey de los Earth, Wind & Fire.






Part Time Lover

Lyrics

Call up, ring once, hang up the phone
To let me know you made it home
Don't want nothing to be wrong with part-time lover
If she's with me I'll blink the lights
To let you know tonight's the night
For me and you my part-time lover

We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right

If I'm with friends and we should meet
Just pass me by, don't even speak
Know the word's "discreet" when part-time lovers
But if there's some emergency
Have a male friend to ask for me
So then she won't peek its really you my part-time lover

We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right
(repeat)

I've got something that I must tell
Last night someone rang our doorbell
And it was not you my part-time lover
And then a man called our exchange
But didn't want to leave his name
I guess that two can play the game
Of part-time lovers
You and me, part-time lovers
But, she and he, part-time lovers
