Set him free, set him free For I love him, you see Order in the court...
Set him free, set him free For I love him, you see Order in the court Do you swear to tell the truth The whole truth and nothing but the truth So help you God Yes, I do Judge, I've never believed in divorces Unless they just have to be But after you've heard my story Then I know you'll set this man free It began right after the wedding She cheated and she lied from the start And I could see from the way they were hidden This woman would soon break his heart Set him free, set him free For I love him, you see The three of us were always the best of friends But when I leave this courtroom, judge, I know our friendship ends If you could've heard the awful things that I've heard her say Why she'd call him names and slap his face, and he'd just turn away And the nights we went out for fun It was all so plain to see then She'd dance all night with someone else And leave him there with me Set him free, set him free For I love him, you see Now I ask you, judge, to understand Think it over slow You see, I fell in love with him And I don't care who knows I'd respect him as a husband And I'd treat him like a man I know I can help him find more happiness Than this woman ever can Well, judge, you've heard my story It's true as true can be I've even told you that I love him So, judge, won't you please set him free? Set him free, set him free For I love him, you see
