Forbidden Fruit Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Eve and Adam had a garden, everything was great
Till one day a boy says, "Pardon, Miss my name is Snake
See that apple over yonder, if you'll take a bite
You and Adam both are bound to have some fun tonight"

"Go on and eat, forbidden fruit
It's mighty sweet, forbidden fruit
It's quite a treat, forbidden fruit
Go ahead and taste it, you don't wanna waste it"

The Lord had said in the beginning, everything is free
Except that apple that leads to sinning, so let that apple be
But Eve got tempted so she tried it and as all chicks do
Teased her man till he decided, he'd just try some too

Go on and eat, forbidden fruit
It's mighty sweet, forbidden fruit
It's quite a treat, forbidden fruit
Go ahead and bite it, I bet you'd be delighted

I hate to tell you all what followed, the Lord was most upset
Saw them making love and hollered, "What have you to add?"
And when they made a full confession, the Lord says "Hmm I see
I guess, I'll have to teach you a lesson about not minding me"

"Go on and eat, forbidden fruit
It's mighty sweet, forbidden fruit
It's quite a treat, forbidden fruit
You're all indebted, now you gonna get it"

The Lord made Eve be Adam's madam, have his kids and all
Placed some labor laws on Adam and he made the snake to fall
Ever since the days of Eden folks been sinful my
Nowadays they're even eating apples in their pie

Go on and eat, forbidden fruit
It's quite a treat, forbidden fruit
It's mighty sweet, forbidden fruit
Go ahead and taste it and you don't wanna waste it
Oh, go on and bite it, I bet you'd be delighted
You always did it and now you gonna get it, forbidden fruit
