Billy Paul - Me and Mrs. Jones (video/audio edited & restored) GQ/HD.

"Me and Mrs. Jones" is a 1972 soul song written by Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff, and Cary Gilbert, and originally recorded by Billy Paul. It describes an extramarital affair between a man and his lover, Mrs. Jones. In the song, following the opening mention of the title, the next line says: "We've got a thing going on". The singer meets Mrs Jones at the same place, at the same cafe at the same time, where they are holding hands and chatting. Both the singer and Mrs Jones acknowledge that what they are doing is wrong, and that they must be extra careful by keeping their secrets from each other.

"Me and Mrs. Jones" was a #1 single originally performed by Billy Paul, recorded and released in 1972 on CBS Records' Philadelphia International imprint. The single, included on the album 360 Degrees of Billy Paul, was written by Cary 'Hippy' Gilbert, Kenny Gamble, and Leon Huff.

The single became Paul's only #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at that position for three weeks in December 1972. "Me and Mrs. Jones" also achieved this feat on Billboard's R&B Singles chart, remaining at the top position for four weeks. On the Hot 100, it replaced "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" by The Temptations and was replaced by Carly Simon's "You're So Vain".

The radio edit versions were shorter, omitting the second verse, as well as shortening the Coda. The video clip of this song feature Billy Paul playing piano in a recording session, while accompanied by dancers.
