I have heard this song, my Mother is a long time fan of Motown. The song isn't about polyamory but about bi-polar disease or possibly substance abuse. The two lovers are the same man not actually two lovers, she loves them both even though at times he is gentle and kind and at others he is a nightmare. It's a beautiful song and my mother used to listen to it with tears in her eyes thinking about my Dad. Mary Wells had a very sweet voice and I love listening to her songs.

No problem! Mind you swinging and poly relationships have been around for as long as we have been conscious but in the '60s there were many songs written about the phenomenon/lifestyle. For example: The Hustle yup it was written about a sex club I love music trivia!
