Don't You Tempt Me

Don't come off all innocent like. You make my old hormones rage, and then ask a provocative question...

It's a fun, silly song. I started off thinking I would write this in a Ralph Kramden interpretation ("Ooooh, don't tempt me. One of these days, Alice - bang! Zoom!) but it didn't sit right with me. This version is more more my style.

 

She comes up to me
Smile on her face
Coos “can you think of a
Nice warm place”
Wears her dress
Front cut low
Asks me where
I’d like to go

Don’t you tempt me baby
Honey you’ve been warned
Don’t you tempt me baby
I’m barely holding on

She got big brown eyes
Long blonde hair
And if it’s dyed
Well, I don’t care
She wears her skirt
Way up high
Asks what I’d like
To do tonight

Don’t you tempt me baby
Honey you’ve been warned
Don’t you tempt me baby
I’m barely holding on

She wants her coffee
While she lies in bed
And I’m running late
But she turns my head
Her voice is warm
Her lips are soft
When she turns me on
I can’t turn off

She wears a grin
Like a Cheshire Cat
‘Cause she always knows
Where my mind is at
I can talk
But it’s understood
She’ll say “put those lips
Where they’ll do some good”

Don’t you tempt me baby
Honey you’ve been warned
Don’t you tempt me baby
I’m barely holding on
