Oh, she walks in, 5"9, looking so fine
And the way that she's moving across the room
She knows exactly what she's here to do
She's getting closer, now I get high
Something's coming off of me, the more I look in her eyes
My baby's waiting at home, there's no way I'm leaving her alone

Temptation
Temptation, you won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more
Temptation, You won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more

She walked right out from the pages of my passions
Got that same sensuous smile right down to her fine ass
She's poetry in motion every move she makes
And she wants my immediate attention for some old times sake
I tried to explain, get her to understand
Things are different now, see I'm a family man
Don't waste your time and effort trying to get me hot
No way in this world am I trying to lose what I got

Temptation, you won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more
Temptation, You won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more

Son, you can never give in
'Cause if you let it begin
You will never be able to stop
You gotta do whatever it takes
Learn from all my mistakes
And don't ever play games with her heart, whoo

Temptation, you won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more
Temptation, you won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more
Temptation, you won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more
Temptation, you won't get the best of me
Won't get the best of me no more
