A A7 D A
High and lonesome out on Times Square
A7 D A
Haven't got a dime, ain't got a prayer
A7 D A
Deliver us, Lord, from this golden calf
A7 D A
People only want what they cannot have

D#o7
Forbidden fruit
D E A D
That's the fruit that you'd better not taste
A D#o7
Forbidden fruit
D E A D
You've got one life that you'd better not waste

A A7 D A
How can I walk with this ball and chain?
A7 D A
How can I land in this hurricane?
A7 D A
Or is this part of man's evolution
A7 D A
To be torn between truth and illusion?
D#o7
Forbidden fruit
D E A D
That's the route that you'd better not take
A D#o7
Forbidden fruit
D E A
Just watch out for the sign of the snake


Little brother got caught in the web
He ran off to join the living dead
Been through the mill, seen the cross on the hill
He sold his soul just for a thrill
Forbidden fruit
In hot pursuit out on a limb
Forbidden fruit
Your whole world is closing in

You got the picture but missed the drift
About me workin' the graveyard shift
I never went in for no burglary
But there's a stranger inside of me
Forbidden fruit
Don't you shoot the whole works away
Forbidden fruit
It's too high of a price to pay

How can you hear with a bad connection?
You can't see when there's no reception
Keep your distance, don't fool with taboo
'Cause it'll overtake and undertake you
Forbidden fruit
That's the fruit that you'd better not taste
Forbidden fruit
You've got one life that you'd better not waste
