I got home late this evening, stumbled up the stair
I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked in the bedroom there
My woman with a man was lyin' fast asleep
I felt a rage inside me, control I couldn't keep

She was a cheater

I reached the dressing table, kicked away the door
I gripped the cold black metal, a loaded .44
By this time they're awake and they don't know what to do
I scream you cheatin' bitch here's what I think of you

You are a cheater

They both pleaded for mercy, I said no way
When you do this upon me, you have no say
I treated you so real good, and this is what you do
Oh no I've finished with you, your time is through

You are a cheater

If you need a cheater there's nobody sweeter than this one
There's no neater, come on here and meet her
Cheater, cheater, cheater, come on and meet her

    The song is in first person, but that may be just to make the song more personal. It's possible the song isn't about somone who cheated on him, just about someone who cheated on an anomynous narrator.

    Probably one of two songs from Halford's era with the word "she". Other one is Victim of Changes.

    Its obviouly about a woman who cheated on Rob, but I thought Rob was gay? Did he not become gay until later?
