​Fool For Temptation

This song is by The 4 Of Us and appears on the album Songs For The Tempted (1989).

I'm just a fool for temptation
Is that so wrong
You can let go of that stand
I'm just an ordinary man
I'm just a fool for temptation
Is that so wrong
And I'll work to put it right
Just don't ask me tonight

Look relax the lectures
I'm no good at being good
Don't you think I really would resist it if I could
I'm just a fool for temptation
Is that so wrong
You can let go of that stand
I'm just an ordinary man

When drink has done its turn
When it's much better fun to burn
When it's better at the edge of the road
When emotion runs cold
When cynics cut you down
But it's much better fun to fool around
When indifference is all you've found
I'll be there, I'll be there

There's just a web of deception
That ties you down
Can't you be honest with yourself
When you are with no one else
There's just no sense of direction
To steer you home
You know I'd like to stay and help
But I'm too worried about myself

It's the same old story
I don't need this life
And I don't care what anybody else says
I'm just a fool for temptation
Is that so wrong
You can let go of that stand
I'm just an ordinary man

When drink has done its turn
When it's much better fun to burn
When it's better at the edge of the road
When emotion runs cold
When cynics cut you down
But it's much better fun to fool around
When indifference is all you've found
I'm just a fool for temptation
I'm just a fool
I'm just a fool for temptation
I'm just a fool, fool, fool, fool, fool
