TEMPTATION

South America, South Pacific, Africa, the French Foreign Legion: all parts of a ’30s world popularized by young Bing Crosby, who gave this tune a cynical introduction in the low-budget Going Hollywood. Veteran musical-theatre star Tom Pickett applies the sincere baritone of Billy Eckstine on this globe-hopping number from Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown, who also wrote most of Singin’ in The Rain. And versatile guitarist Johannes Grames plays five parts on his bazouki, a Greek answer to the Russian balalaika, while Chris Davis calls for more cavalry.

Lyrics

 

You came, I was alone. I should have known. You were temptation
You smiled, luring me on. My heart was gone, you were temptation

It would be thrilling, If you were willing, If it can never be
Pity me. For you are temptation and I am yours
Here is my heart, take it and say, We'll never part


I'm just a slave, Only a slave to you, temptation
You were born to be kissed, I can't resist.
You are temptation and I am yours
Here is my heart, take it and say, We'll never part. 

I'm just a slave. Only a slave to you, temptation
