Almost Persuaded Lyrics by Etta James
Almost Persuaded by Etta James
I met a man with a drink in his hand
He had soft brown eyes and coal black hair
And a smile a girl could understand
Then he came and sat down at my table
And placed his warm hand on mine, now
And I found myself wanting, longing to kiss him, yes I did
For temptation was flowing like wine
And oh I was all, almost persuaded
To strip myself apart, apart, yes
Oh almost, nearly persuaded now
To push my, push my ole conscience right on the side
Then we danced, then we danced, he whispered, "Baby, I need you now"
He said to me, "Let me take you away, ooh I wanna be your man"
Than I looked in his eyes and I saw it, yeah I saw it
I saw the reflection of my, my wedding band
Oh I was almost, almost, almost persuaded, yes I was
To let a strange lips, somebody's lips lure me, lure me on, now
Oh I was almost, yeah nearly, nearly persuaded
But your, your sweet love made me stop, made me stop and go on
