Prince – Temptation lyrics

Pop go mama

Everybody on this earth has got a vice
Mine, little darlin', mine is the opposite of ice
Mine is the runnin?? Hot water of the daughter of morality
In other words, this little Prince thinks a lot about you, see?
Baby, baby, baby, I'm guilty in the first degree!

Workin?? My body with a hot flash o?? Animal lust
All my fingers in the pool go splash we must

Oh, everybody in this room, everybody in this room has got an urge
(What's yours, baby?)
Mine is temptation, it reigns at a party where lovers splurge
Pop go mama when daddy get a little 2 much
(you know what I'm talkin' about?)
Purplelectricity whenever our bodies touch
Oh baby, I love it when our bodies touch!

Temptation, temptation, temptation
Wait a minute now

Oh, temptation
Workin?? My body, workin?? My body, workin?? My body

I'm not talkin' about just ordinary temptation, people
I'm talkin?? About the kind of temptation that'll make you do things
Oh, oh, temptation
Oh darling, I can almost taste the wetness between your...
Temptation, temptation
I'm not talkin?? About any ol' kind of temptation, people
I'm talkin' about, I'm talkin' about sexual temptation

A lover
I need a lover, a lover, I need a... Right now
You, I want you
I want you in the worst way
I want you

Oh silly man, that's not how it works
You have 2 want her 4 the right reasons
I do!

You don't, now die!

No! No!
Let me go, let me go
I'm sorry
I'll be good
This time I promise
Love is more important than s**
Now I understand
I have 2 go now
I don't know when I'll return
