How can it be permissible
She compromise my principle, yeah yeah
That kind of love is mythical
She's anything but typical

She's a craze you'd endorse, she's a powerful force
You're obliged to conform when there's no other course
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
Simply irresistible

Her loving is so powerful, huh
It's simply unavoidable
The trend is irreversible
The woman is invincible

She's a natural law, and she leaves me in awe
She deserves the applause, I surrender because
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
Simply irresistible

Simply irresistible She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to go

She's unavoidable, I'm backed against the wall
She gives me feelings like I never felt before
I'm breaking promises, she's breaking every law
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to
go

Her methods are inscrutable
The proof is irrefutable, Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
She's so completely kissable, huh
Our lives are indivisible

She's a craze you'd endorse, she's a powerful force
You're obliged to conform when there's no other course
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
Simply irresistible

She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to go
She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to go

Simply irresistible

    General Comment:So is this song about true love or is the singer, as most do, once again talking about sex? "I'm backed against the wall" and "theres no telling where the money went", sould that refer to a hooker?

    General Comment:I like how people like to focus just on 3 of Robert Palmer's songs (At least in the US) and just talk about him being dead all the time.

    Come on... where are the real fans who have actually heard great recordings like Sneaking Sally Through the Alley, You're Gonna Get What's Coming, I Dream of Wires and Some People Can Do What They Like?

    General Comment:My parents, sister, and 4 older brothers always tell me that when I was a newborn infant until I was around 3 years old... If I was crying, one of the only things that calmed me down was them dancing around crazily in the dining room with me in their arms to "Simply Irresistable" by Robert Palmer... FULL BLAST! I'm 18 now, and that story just cracks me up! Any trip they went on, any babysitter they used, they made sure that CD was around! It calmed me down NO FAIL. It couldn't just be any song, even if it was by Robert Palmer... it HAD to be Simply Irresistable. They even had to buy another copy of the CD eventually because we wore it out! Haha!

    General Comment:I think this song is a tongue in cheek song about the 'type' of woman a man might be interested in. Remember this was the late '80's and plastic surgery is all the rage--(I think that's where the 'money went.') and she's a 'craze you'd endorse,' and 'she used to look good but now I find her simply irresistable.' The video kind of goes in this direction, too, with all the look-a-like women in his band.
