One more time to test the will power of me
These feelings that I hold now
Just won't let me be
This woman won't leave me alone
She's trying to ruin my happy home
With a man's temptation

Now I've got another back home
Who's the beat of my heart
I never thought no one else
Could ever tear us apart
To each other we had been so true
Until alas come a love like you
With a man's temptation

I know I've got to be strong
I've got to fight this all along
So afraid of what I must do
I got to take my woman or you

Now, I've got a feeling telling me
To let your heart be your guide
I don't want to lose either one
Which makes it hard to decide
Though my mind continues to roam
Oh Baby, my heart it stays at home
Controlling my temptation

I'm sorry little miss
That's the way love is
I'm sorry I can't stay
I must be on my way
Do, do, do, do, do, dah, do dah, do
