"Adam's Apple" as written by and Steven Tyler....
Back when Cain was able
Way before the stable
Lightning shot right out from the sky
A mothership with fate said let's give it a try

Conscience was related
Man, he was created
Lady luck took him by surprise
Her sweet and bitter fruit
It surely opened his eyes

Well, she ate it
Lordy, it was love at first bite
Well, she ate it
Never knowin' wrong for right, right, right, right

Even Eve in eden
Voices tried deceivin'
With lies to show the lady the way
At first she stopped and turned
And tried to walk away

Man, he was believer
Lady was deceiver
So the story goes, but you see
The snake was he and she just climbed right up his tree

So, she ate it
Lordy, it was love at first bite
Well, she ate it
Never knowin' wrong for right, right, right

Conscience was related
Man, he was created
When lady luck took him by surprise
Her sweet and bitter fruits
Surely opened his eyes

Evil came like rain
And who knows who's to blame
And something tried to lay her to waste
And all she want to need was just a little taste

So, she ate it
Lordy, it was love at first bite
Yeah, she ate it
Never knowin' wrong for right, right, right, right
Well, she ate it
Lordy, it was love at first bite
Yeah, she ate it
Never knowing wrong from right, right,
Well that's right

    General CommentA little more in-depth detail about Adam and Eve. Looks like the apple wasn't the only fruit eaten. (hee hee)

    General CommentI believe this song isn't just Steven's take on the story of Adam and Eve, but also about the origins of human beings' inherent sexuality. The "original sin" if you will. And it's definitely no secret that Steven Tyler is an extremely sexual person, who writes very sexual lyrics. His plays-on-words and innuendos are legendary, and coupled with Joe Perry's riffs and Tom Hamilton's driving bass lines are what make Aerosmith's music so fun to listen to.

    My OpinionYet another song written "for" Aerosmith and not by Aerosmith. Imagine living a lie for nearly 35 years.
