I need to run a SQL statement to get total values from 2 tables (Table1, Table2)

Select Sum(A.Amount) as AmountA, Sum(B.Amount) as AmountB From Table1 as A, Table2 as B

The above sql is correct if each table has a single record
If Table2 has multiple records, the AmountA seems multiple its total value

Why this SQL causes this error?
