One more time to test the will power of me
These feelings that I hold now just won't let me be
Oh, this woman won't leave me alone
She's trying to ruin my happy home with a man's temptation, yeah

Now I've got another back home who's the beat of my heart
But I never thought no one else could ever tear us apart
To each other we have been so true
Until alas come a love like you with a man's temptation, yeah

I know I've got to be strong
I've got to fight this all along, yeah
So afraid for what I must do
I've got to take my woman or you

I've got a feeling telling me, let your heart be your guide
But I don't want to lose either one which makes it hard to decide
And though my mind continues to roam, yeah
My heart, it stays at home controls my temptation, yeah

I'm sorry little miss that's the way it is
I'm sorry, I'm sorry I can't stay, I must be on my way
Do, do, do, do, with a man's temptation, yeah
With a man's temptation, with a man's temptation

When a man needs a pretty woman
It makes him, it makes him want
To shout just a little bit like this

With a man's temptation
A little bit louder now
With a man's, with a man's
