Floyd Tillman performs "Slipping Around"Live Video.

"Slippin' Around" is a song written and recorded by Floyd Tillman in 1949. The most popular recording was a cover version by Margaret Whiting and Jimmy Wakely which reached number one on the Retail Folk (Country) Best Sellers chart.It is a song about a person cheating on his/her spouse.

Tillman wrote a follow-up song, the same year, with essentially the same melody, called "I'll Never Slip Around Again" in which the cheater has married the one that he/she cheated with, and is in turn worried that he/she is being cheated on. Tillman, as well as Whiting and Wakely, recorded this song as well, as did Doris Day.

Floyd Tillman - Slipping Around Lyrics

 

Seems we always have to slip around

To be together, Dear

Slipping around

Afraid we might be found

 

I know I can't forget you

And I've gotta have you near

But we just have to

Slip around and live in constant fear

 

Oh, you're tied up with someone else

And I am all tied up, too

I know I've made mistakes, Dear

But I'm so in love with you

 

I hope some day I'll find a way

To bring you back to me

And I won't have to slip around

To have your company

 

Oh, you're tied up with someone else

And I'm all tied up, too

I know I've made mistakes, Dear

But I'm so in love with you

 

I hope some day I'll find a way

To bring you back to me

And I won't have to slip around

And I won't have to slip around

To have your company
