John Robert "Joe" Cocker OBE (born 20 May 1944) is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s, and is known for his gritty voice, his idiosyncratic arm movements while performing, and his cover versions of popular songs, particularly those of the Beatles. more »

I bought a toothbrush and toothpaste A flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush, new shoes and a case
I said to my reflection, "You'll be out of this place"

Past the church and the steeple The laundry on the hill Billboards and the buildings, memories of it still Keep calling and calling but forget it all I know I will
 Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered What's been going on Since you've been gone, there's no other Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered 
I'm at the car park at the airport The baggage carousel
The people keep on crowding, wishing I was well
I said it's no occasion, no story I could tell

At my bedside empty pocket A foot without a sock
Your body gets much closer, I fumble for the clock Alarmed by the seduction and I wish that it would stop
 Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered What's been going on
Now that you have gone, there's no other Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered  Bought a novel, some perfume A fortune all for you
But though it's not my conscience that hates to be untrue I asked of my reflection, "What is there to do?"
 Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered What's been going on
Now that you have gone, there's no other Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered  Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered [Incomprehensible] Tempted by the fruit of another  Tempted but the truth is discovered Tempted by the fruit of another Tempted but the truth is discovered
