Sex
Temptation
Lust
Pop go mama, whoo
Yeah! Ooh... oh

Everybody on this earth has got a vice
Mine, little darlin', mine is the opposite of ice
Mine is the runnin' hot water of the daughter of morality
N other words, this little Prince thinks a lot about U, see?
Baby baby baby, I'm guilty n the 1st degree
Yeah!

Temptation workin' my body with a hot flash of animal lust
Temptation, all my fingers n the pool go splash, we must

Oh, everybody n this room, everybody n this room has got an urge
What's urs, baby?
Mine is temptation and it reigns at a party where lovers splurge
Oh...
Pop go mama when daddy get a little 2 much
Haha, U know what I'm talkin' about?
Ow! Purple electricity whenever our bodies touch
Oh baby, I love it when our bodies touch! Whoo!

Yeah! Temptation, oh
I said workin' my body with a hot flash of animal lust, huh
Temptation, all my fingers n the pool go splash, we must
Yeah, temptation temptation temptation
Yeah... whoo!
Wait a minute now
Whoo
Ooh
Oh
Uh uh uh

Oh, temptation!
Yeah, workin' my body with a hot flash of animal temptation!
Yeah ooh!
Temptation, ooh, all my fingers n the pool go splash, we must
Oh, temptation workin' my body, workin' my body, workin' my body

Temptation
I'm not talkin' about just ordinary temptation, people
I'm talkin' about the kind of temptation that'll make U do things
Oh oh, temptation
Oh darling, I can almost taste the wetness between ur...
Temptation, temptation
I'm not talkin' about any ol' kind of temptation, people
I'm talkin' about, I'm talkin' about sexual temptation
A lover
I need a lover, a lover, I need a... right now
U, I want U, I want U n the worst way
I want U
"Oh silly man, that's not how it works
U have 2 want her 4 the right reasons"
I do
"U don't, now die"
No! No!
Let me go, let me go
Ahh! Stop!

I'm sorry, I'll b good
This time I promise
Love is more important than sex
Now I understand
I have 2 go now
I don't know when I'll return
Goodbye
