Sweet temptation, that's what you are to me
That's what you'll always be, it seems 
Ah, sweet temptation, you smile and pass me by
But still you occupy my dreams 

Baby, I've got a lot of hidden charms
You'd find if you'd just hold me in your arms
But you're just sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough 
You make it awful tough on me

Ah, you do, honey 

Ah, sweet temptation, the most delicious peach
Is always out of reach, they say
Ah, sweet temptation, you're just a little flirt, squirt 
You know, you might get hurt that way

Baby, someday you'll get a big surprise 
Find someone who'll make you realize 
That you're just sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough 
You make it awful tough on me

What do you think, Mutt?

Baby, someday you'll get a big surprise 
Find someone who'll make you realize 
That you're just sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough 
You make it awful tough for me

Play it boys

Ah, sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough 
You make it awful tough for me
