Plot summary

A Documentary with HRH Billy Paul
-That one thing I told you Göran, why do you do so much work? Sometimes why did I do that song? Because every song I do has a meaning. Mrs Jones had a real meaning because there was a mrs Jones, and haven't even told you the story about mrs Jones.
- Please do.
- My wife is not mrs Jones. And she says one thing don´t call me mrs Jones because I'm no mrs Jones! And we get into that later on... Mohammed Ali introduce me to her, I leave it to that. Me and my wife had broken up and I went to Louisville Kentucky and he was waiting for me at the airport, and I was in distress because I didn't want to break up with my wife at that time, but he said take the night of I´m going to introduce you somebody. And so the story started to happened, and I also got picked up in pieces ass we moved along.
I knew you where gonna ask me that question, its so funny because when I started to sing that song I didn't know everybody had a mrs Jones. The hole world had a mrs Jones.
