Temptation Song Lyrics


Johnny:
Oh, tell me will you, darling
Why you look so bad tonight
You got bags around your eyeballs
That are red instead of white
June Carter:
Well, let me put it this way, you came, I was alone
Shucks, I should a knowed that you was temptation
You smiled a leering me on, my heart is plumb gone
Cause you was temptation
June:
It’ll be thrilling if you’re willing
But if it never can be then a pity for me
For you was too bored to be kissed
I couldn’t resist cause you was temptation and I was yours
Johnny:
As the apple tempted Adam
As the serpent tempted Eve
As the willow tree tempts the caterpillar, baby
June: That’s how you tempted me
Johnny:
As the corn liquor tempts the drunkard
As sorghum tempts the bee
As the mud hole tempts the mosquito, baby
June:
That’s how you tempted me
For you came and I was alone
Shucks, I should a knowed that you was temptation
(A ring-a-ding-ding-ding)
You smiled a leering me on my heart is plumb gone
For you was temptation
June:
It’ll be thrilling if you’re willing
But if it never can be then a pity for me
For you was too bored to be kissed
I couldn’t resist cause you was temptation and I was yours
June:
Here is my heart
Take it away, oh take it away
Say that we will never, never, never part
June:
I’m just a slave, just a dadburn slave
I’m a going to wed you
For you’re temptation and I’m a red hot flame
Johnny: Hot splinter
June: For you
