Temptation

Music & Lyrics by Garland Jeffreys and Alan Troubleshooter

From the album Wildlife Dictionary (1997)

 

Temp temp temptation

Baby meet me at the station

Need a little information

You can meet me at the train

Temptation, temptation

Talkin’ to my mind

What’s goin’ on

Temptation, temptation

See it in your eyes

What’s been goin’ on

In the realm of love and war

At the helm I shut the door

I admit was once

But now the world is wonderful

I won’t let you down

Each and every minute hurts

It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts

The big hurt

Temptation, temptation

Talk is goin’ round

What’s it gonna be

Temptation, temptation

In the here and now

What’s it gonna be

Aah (temp, temp temptation)

Aah (baby meet me at the station)

Aah (it’s another situation)

Aah (I need a little information)

(Temp, temp temptation) Yes the rhythm is on

(Baby meet me at the train) Yes the rhythm is on

(In the pouring pouring rain) Yes the rhythm is on

(Temp, temp temptation) Yes the rhythm is on

In the realm of love and war

No one could love you more

Not like anyone who’s been before

No one could love you more

I won’t let you down

Each and every minute hurts

It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, the big hurt

Temptation, temptation

Got me extra wound in love’s addiction

Temptation, temptation

Talk is all around

And this ain’t fiction

Aah, aah, a a h, aah

Oh the rhythm is on

Yes the rhythm is on

Oh the rhythm is on

Yes the rhythm is on

Temp, temp temptation

Gonna meet you at the station

Need a little information

Temp, temp temptation

Gonna meet you at the train

Gonna wade into the pouring rain
