Song Meaning
Verse 1
Sometime I'm tempted by big brown eyes
Sometime I'm tempted to cheat and lie
Sometime I'm tempted but won't give in
Old mister Devil ain't gonna win
Verse 2
'Cause when I see him walkin' down the avenue
I think of all the things that other folks might do
Then I turn and run, run, run, run
Straight to baby's arms
Verse 3
Where I'm safe and sound in baby's arms
The urge to cheat sometime is strong
But a little bitty voice tells me it's wrong
Sometimes I'm tempted but won't give in
Verse 4
Old mister Devil ain't gonna win
'Cause when I see him walkin' down the street
I think of what may happen if we chance to meet
And I turn and run, run, run, run
Verse 5
Back to baby's arms
Where I'm safe and sound in baby's arms
Well' a perilous tongue might tell you lies
'Cause you pain, bring you strife
Verse 6
Trust in me I will not falter
Long as there's a spark of life
Evil standin' all around me
Sailin' on a sea of sin
Verse 7
But I won't sink beneath the water
If the water can't get in
The urge to cheat sometime is strong
But a little bitty voice tells me it's wrong
Verse 8
Sometimes I'm tempted but won't give in
Old mister Devil ain't gonna win
'Cause when I see him walkin' down the avenue
I think of all the things that other folks might do
Verse 9
Then I turn and run, run, run, run
Straight to baby's arms
