Ricky Skaggs — Sweet Temptation lyrics

Sweet temptation, that's what you are to me.
That's what you'll always be, it seems.
Ah, sweet temptation, you smile and pass me by.
But still you occupy my dreams.

Baby, I've got a lot of hidden charms.
You'd find if you'd just hold me in your arms.
But you're just sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough.
You make it awful tough on me.

Ah, you do, honey.

Instrumental Break.

Ah, sweet temptation, the most delicious peach,
Is always out of reach, they say.
Ah, sweet temptation, you're just a little flirt, squirt.
You know, you might get hurt that way.

Baby, someday you'll get a big surprise.
Find someone who'll make you realise,
That you're just sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough.
You make it awful tough on me.

What do you think, Mutt?

Instrumental Break.

Baby, someday you'll get a big surprise.
Find someone who'll make you realise,
That you're just sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough.
You make it awful tough for me.

Play it boys.

Instrumental Break.

Ah, sweet temptation, a diamond in the rough.
You make it awful tough for me.
