"Temptation" as written by and R. Goodrum....
Casey ought to know by now
She's had time enough to figure it out
She ain't gonna be no queenie
She's just way too down and out
She's saved her money but it will not help her now

Temptation, got to pay the people
Temptation, till she's old and feeble
The judge says let's deliver this girl from temptation

She draws a picture on the wall
With her mind that's only partially gone
But she's got more that she can do
Figuring out why the sky is blue
And she won't bother us till 1992

Temptation, got to pay the people
Temptation, till she's old and feeble
The judge says let's deliver this girl from temptation

What she would've given to live in a neighborhood
Just like me and you
With someone to show her the rules she's broken
But society has spoken

Temptation, got to pay the people
Temptation, till she's old and feeble
The judge says let's deliver this girl from temptation
