The song is: Fightin’ a Losin Battle But Having a Lot of Fun Trying to Win by Brownie McGee. It begins:
You know it’s hard to love another man’s woman
Can’t see her when you want to gotta see her when you can
I may be fighting a losing battle but having a lot of fun
Trying to win
I thought it over these two points of view.
You know a one-way lovin just ain’t no good for two
I may be fightin’ a losin’ battle but havin’ a lot of fun tryin’ to win.
