"It Can't Be Wrong" was an Earth song from the 1940s. Seven of Nine sang the song under the influence of a neural link that falsely made her believe she was the lounge singer in the night club Le Coeur de Lion. The club was part of a holographic recreation of 1944 Sainte Claire in occupied France, where the crew of the USS Voyager was being hunted by Hirogen in 2374. (VOY: "The Killing Game")

"It Can't Be Wrong" was first performed by Dick Haymes, one of the most popular American male vocalists of the 1940s and early 1950s. He performed the song in 1943 and it became a minor hit during the first months of the Allied invasion in the Second World War. It is adapted from the Academy Award-winning theme which Max Steiner wrote for the 1942 Bette Davis film Now, Voyager (which featured Trek guest actor Ian Wolfe). Steiner reused it in the theme of the 1945 film Mildred Pierce, which was directed by Michael Curtiz, stepfather of TOS writer/director/producer John Meredyth Lucas and photographed by Ernest Haller.
According to M. Evans – author of
Soundtrack: Music of the Movies (Da Capo 1979) – and other sources, the Max Steiner theme from the 1942 film Now, Voyager had lyrics written by Kim Gannon.
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 379), this song was about the "romantic attraction between two humanoids."


Would it wrong to kiss
Seeing I feel like this
Would it be wrong to try?
Would it be wrong to stay
Here in your arms this way
Under the starry sky
If it is wrong
Then why were you sent to me
Why am I content to be
With you forever?
When I need you so much
And I have waited so long
It must be right
It can't be wrong
