Who's this kid with his mumbo jumbo Living in air-conditioned limbo Though they treat him just like a guest He's living under threat of arrest Now that he's finally trying to make some sense He drinks in self-defense Give me temptation The subtle touch of authority will Take you anytime down to the station You say that is alright by me Now you're living with the curse of sophistication Now that you're shackled up to the rigmarole With absolute control I see you lying so wide awake After I've given you all that you can take So for heaven's sake Give me temptation Still you want to succeed so badly Finding your life will not be deadly You tell me you can take it or leave it Sometimes I think that you really believe it You're just itching to break her secret laws As you go from claws to clause Give me temptation Give me temptation Give me temptation Give me temptation Give me temptation Give me temptation Give me temptation Give me temptation
